Humanity is emerging from a long, exhausting war. Against an enemy so powerful, so implacable, it seemed unstoppable – right up until the moment it stopped.
Now, despite its ‘victory’, the human race is on its knees. The Doctor and Mel join its struggle for survival to try to ensure it has a future.
A race against time takes them from the Great Tower of Kalsos to the Reliquaries of Earth. In an epic journey across the ten systems, their fates are intertwined with one family. The Tevelers are to feel the effects of war more than most…
The Doctor has a plan. Mel is sure he can save the day. But something is lurking. Watching. Waiting. A presence the Doctor knows of old. But just how far does its influence pervade?
The Eminence awaits…
- The Seeds of War was the third story in the 2013 trilogy featuring the Sixth Doctor and Melanie “Mel” Bush.
- When pretending to the Eminence to be working for it, the Doctor says, “I am your servant” just as the Daleks did on Vulcan. (The Power of the Daleks)
- This story must take place in or after the 30th century as the work of agronomist Lasky is documented, which the Doctor thinks is best to stay away from. (Terror of the Vervoids)
- Mel looks for the “mythical” TARDIS swimming pool. (Paradise Towers)
