Reeltime Pictures SIL and the Devil Seeds of Arodor DVD

Available to order from

Available to order from #ad

An original drama from the world of BBCtv s DOCTOR WHO, featuring SIL, the ruthless alien entrepreneur from planet Thoros Beta, played by NABIL SHABAN.

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?

    Someone should make a DVD checklist of all the Spin Offs

    Oh, FYI! The lovely art cover by Martin Baines ( the inlay as they all it in the business! 🙂 ) is for publicity purposes.

    Once we shoot the studio recording, we will be making up a photo “inlay” which will be for the actual release.

    Same is true for Anomaly!

    So what is this? A new one off spin off that’s straight to DVD? Is it animation or live action? Does the Doctor even feature?

      live action and no way would a Doctor feature ( as The Doctor)

      This is a bit like the Amazon preorder pricing, we have the same conversation about these as well. This is brand new, live action drama featuring licenced copyrighted characters from doctor who. The doctor will never feature as they can not get the rights to feature the various characters of the doctor. However an actor who played the doctor might appear as another character (not in this one I hasten to add) the fact that the cover is artwork does not mean it’s animated just that it has an artwork cover. They are limited budget productions done by professional people as a sideline to their corporate films main line. So don’t expect motion picture sets and special effects. I’ve enjoyed reeltimes previous drama output simply because their heart is in the right place.

    How can I purchase rights to doctor who villains so I can make my own official doctor who spin off
    Cause that would be amazing
    Am only joking
    But seriously how can I

      You’d basically have to befriend their creator (or get permission from their estate), and that’s provided the character is obscure enough yet well remembered that you’d avoid the worst of the BBC copyright.

    Be nice if they did one featuring a new who enemy.

    Just received a message from galaxy 4 saying the price has changed. Gone down from £14.99 to £12.99 for dvd

    Mate of mine said how can they have time to do this one if they don’t have time for anomaly? Reading between the lines from what’s said in the blurb this one looks relatively easy to do. From the sound of it, it may be a talking head production. So one actor one set. Much cheaper. They just have to recreate sil’s costume build a cell and that’s it. It may have other actors in, I don’t know but it has to be easier than anomaly to make.

      Hi all. No it’s not talking heads like WHITE WITCH OF DEVIL’S END … it’s a full cast drama, but you are quite right that we’ve swapped it with ANOMALY because it’s easier to make. Reeltime is heavily committed with a lot of work this year and it was either do SIL or no spin off drama. Se we decided to flip ANOMALY and SIL. ANOMALY will be made next year.

      Great to hear, I really enjoy these dramas. Loved white witch, damaris was superb!

    Looks interesting. Sil was one of the best and most memorable creations in 1980’s Doctor Who. It’s good to see a return to brand new unofficial spin-offs.

      This is an official spinoff really, they always get rights to do the characters featured (something bill baggs didn’t always bother to do!)

    This is brand new. It replaces anomaly which was originally intended to be released November 2018, was delayed to November 19 and has now been put back to 2020. A 15 rating is interesting! I really enjoy reeltimes dramas so I’ve already ordered this. Oh and it’s available in both DVD and bluray as well.

    Man, the nineties were weird

      80’s actually. And yes, they could be weird. Philip Martin writing – it’s a must have!

      Sil was nothing to do with the nineties. The star of the serials he appeared in written by his actual author. Might be worth listening to.
