Plot of ‘The War Between the Land and the Sea’
‘The War Between the Land and the Sea’ will feature the Sea Devils and their aquatic colonies who have risen from a suspended animation. Historians who had been allowed access to the “Monster Vaults” secured in the Doctor’s TARDIS observed that the Sea Devils got their name from unfamiliar humans. The name was then used by the Sea Devils themselves as well as the Silurians as time went on while humans retained their knowledge as ancient race memories, long forgotten. These beings who once ruled the Earth are now back in an attempt to reclaim their planet thereby putting them at direct odds with the new rulers: humankind.
The upcoming series will also be airing on BBC One and Disney+ like its predecessors and will potentially commence its filming in Spring of 2024. Cardiff, UK will be serving as the primary location for ‘The War Between the Land and the Sea’ whose development will be taken by Bad Wolf, a production company founded by Julie Gardner and Jane Tranter.
