If you’re a Whovian, you may remember Sil the alien from the planet Thoros from the Colin Baker-era of Doctor Who. Sil will now be the star of their own film.
Actor Nabil Shaban plays the title character again in Sil and the Devil Seeds of Arodor. So what is Sil up to now? Here is the summary from Koch Media:
Sil is worried. Very worried… which doesn’t keep his reptilian skin in the best condition! Confined in a cold detention cell on the moon, awaiting a deportation hearing while on trial for drugs offences committed on Earth, he faces a death sentence if the application is successful and he is found guilty. His powerful employers at the Universal Monetary Fund aren’t too pleased about that. Not at all…
As time runs out and friends desert him, Sil must use all of his devious, vile, underhanded, ruthless, and amoral business acumen to survive. Can he possibly slime his way out of this one?
Sil and the Devil Seeds of Arodor is written by Sil’s creator and original episode writer Philip Martin, produced and directed by Keith Barnfather.
