A synopsis of the drama, featuring the alien entrepreneur first seen in the sixth Doctor story Vengeance on Varos, was released:
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 for trial on drugs offences on Earth, he faces a death sentence if the application is successful and he is found guilty. And his employers at the Universal Monetary Fund aren’t pleased either. 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 available for preorder on Amazon.
