Thicker Than Water
Colin Baker (the Doctor), Maggie Stables (Evelyn), Bonnie Langford (Mel), Gabriel Woolf (Principal Triumvir Rossiter), Rachel Pickup (Dr Sofia Rossiter), Patrick Romer (Dr Andrew Szabó), Simon Watts (Dr Sebastian Lawrence), Matt Dineen (Jenner), James Parsons (TV Interviewer)
Three years after Világ was all but laid waste by the Killorans, the Doctor is back alongside a different companion. And a lot has changed.
Now elected Principle Triumvir, head of a tripartite government, Rossiter is working to secure a peaceful future for the planet by researching the technology the Killorans left behind. But he has to contend with opposition from his daughter, Sofia, who heads a public campaign demanding the destruction of all alien artefacts.
Politics has caused a rift between father and daughter, and as if that weren’t enough, Sofia doesn’t approve of her new step-mother either. Emotions soon boil over into violence, a violence that seems to have gripped the entire city.
Friendships bind people close, but they say that blood is.
