Koch Media is following up their release of ‘Downtime’ with their second ‘Doctor Who’ spin-off title ‘Daemos Rising’.
Synopsis: ‘Daemos Rising’ is the 2004 direct sequel to unofficial 1995 release ‘Downtime’, but also to the Jon Pertwee era ‘Doctor Who’ story ‘The Daemons’.
In the film, Cavendish is broken by his experiences in ‘Downtime’ and hides away in a country cottage where he becomes absorbed by the occult. Kate Lethbridge-Stewart of UNIT travels to see him after an appeal for help and together they battle the resurgent evil Daemons from the story of the same name.
‘Daemos Rising’ is a unique British 2004 sci-fi movie from the ‘Doctor Who’ universe (but unofficial) featuring treasured characters and talent from the franchise and only now released on DVD – it’s a must see for fans of the Time Lord. Fully Digitally Remastered for 2016 including an additional 16:9 Widescreen version of the feature for the first time. And including new Special Features.
Starring Beverley Cressman (Downtime) and Miles Richardson (Midsomer Murders) and narrated by Ian Richardson (House of Cards). ‘Daemos Rising’ is Written by David J. Howe and Directed by Keith Barnfather.
