THE ENEMY OF THE WORLD

THE YEAR IS 2018. THE TARDIS ARRIVES IN THE Cedar district of Australia, 200 miles from Kanowa. The Doctor, Jamie and Victoria are saved from gunmen by Astrid Ferrier, an experienced helicopter pilot.

Astrid is working for Giles Kent, a discredited administrator who was formerly head of security for North Africa and Europe. They inform the Doctor that he’s the double of the Mexican philanthropist Salamander. Because of his invention of the Sun Catcher, Salamander is seen as a public benefactor, saving an over-populated world from starvation.

Kent and Astrid, however, believe that Salamander is eliminating officials who oppose him to gain control of the planet, among them Hockingham, Elvick and Michael Assevski, controller of the Eastern European Zone. He was replaced by Alexander Denes, another of Kent’s allies.
