Biography

Tritovore, an anthropomorphic fly species, who takes them to their wrecked spaceship in Planet of the Dead. The Doctor helps to assure them of the situation, learning they were making a routine delivery to the planet and crashed. He uses the ship’s probes to discover that but a year ago, the planet housed a 100-billion-strong population but were turned to sand, their psychic memories resonating with Carmen. The probe further reveals the oncoming sandstorm is actually a large number of manta ray-like aliens, the cause of the destruction of the planet’s surface. The Doctor determines the species consume the surface of each planet, and then move quickly in large numbers to create a wormhole and use it to move to a new planet to consume, in this case, Earth. With Lady Christina’s burglary skills, the two help the Tritovore to recover a power crystal and its pedestal from a deep well in the ship; however, Lady Christina’s presence awakes an alien in the Tritovore’s hull and it begins to pursue them. The group flee back to the bus, but the Tritovores are consumed by the alien
