The New Silurians

The Silurians (Homo Reptilia) were Earth's first intelligent inhabitants, cold-blood reptilians with a lifespan of over three centuries who developed a civilisation at least 300 million years before human beings evolved.

Silurian astronomers predicated the arrival of a minor planet would devastate Earth, and so the species went into hibernation, with one genetic line being left as caretakers while the others slept. Time hid their cities underground, while the minor planet became Earth's moon.

Advanced Silurian technology includes germ warfare, mutated dinosaurs, electromagnetic barriers, heat rays, laser scalpels, bioprogrammed materials, fluid controls and disc transports that use geothermal currents and gravity bubbles to move underground.

Companions: Amy Pond (Karen Gillan)

Amy Pond is a young Scottish woman from the little English village of Leadworth, near Gloucester. She first met her 'raggedy Doctor' when she was a little girl and had to wait fourteen years before he finally returned and took her off in the TARDIS.

She was brought up by her aunt, without a Mum and Dad. She's very brave, bold and decisive, always ready to confront the problem or force the Doctor to tell her what he's up to. To the Doctor's surprise, she can sometimes see what's going on more clearly than he does. She wants to see the universe before, perhaps, getting back home in time for her wedding day. But that crack in her wall may turn out to be something she can never quite escape. via

The Dream Lord

The Dream Lord is a manifestation of the dark side of the Doctor, who apparently had control over dreams. He was "awoken" by specks of Psychic Pollen from the Candle Meadows of Karass Don Slava that had got stuck in the Time rotor of the TARDIS console, and induced a collective dream state for the Doctor and his companions as they were warmed up. The Dream Lord drew his personality and observations from the 'dark' dimensions of the Doctor's subconscious or innermost thoughts and doubts about the course of his life and perhaps 'cavalier' treatment of others, including self-loathing, guilt, arrogance, selfishness and even lust.

He trapped the Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams between two worlds, one in a seemingly idyllic Upper Leadworth and the other in a TARDIS hurtling toward a freezing star, telling them that one was dream and one was real and that they would have to choose between them. Both involved deadly danger, the little village in fact inhabited by malicious aliens called the Eknodine in the guise of elderly people. Dying in the dream world would cause them to wake up in reality. The Dream Lord would appear to the Doctor and his companions in both worlds, taunting the Doctor on his insecurities and defects and pressuring Amy to assess her own priorities and 'dreams' for the future - whether she wanted a life of adventure with the Doctor or to be settled safely with Rory and a family. He seemed to relish attempting to bait the Doctor and his companions with remarks about their relationships to one another. The Doctor eventually realised that neither world was real, and managed to return them all to the waking world by destroying the TARDIS, seemingly killing himself, Amy and Rory. After finding and removing the psychic pollen, the Doctor saw the Dream Lord's face in his reflection in the TARDIS console, smiling slyly at him. via

The Doctor

They were notable for their many limbs and their two curved canines. They constantly needed to either consume or come in contact with water and this included moisture in blood. If ever they used perception filters, their teeth would remain and they would smell vaguely of fish.

They also resemble deep dwelling sea life in the respect that they have a great sensitivity to light and while they are able to travel in daylight, exposure to direct sunlight will cause them to explode.

The species used perception filter technology, which they used to blend in with the human population of Venice. However, this camouflage was not perfect and gave rise to vampire-like qualities among those in the school. Since the technology couldn't hide reflections, and the human brain couldn't process the two conflicting pieces of information, anyone who saw a member of the species near a reflective surface saw a human without a reflection. Their fangs would also be seen when they fed due to the human subconscious perceiving danger and attempting to alert the conscious mind.

Some time in the species' history their home-world was besieged by the cracks in the universe, ranging from small cracks to cracks that consume the planet's sky. At first the cracks appeared to pose no real danger and the aliens were able to observe other worlds through some, and "silence" and the "end of all things" in others. Eventually, however, the true nature of the cracks became apparent and Saturnyne was lost. The species itself was not lost. Deciding to take their chances with the cracks that showed other worlds, the Saturnynians fled to worlds with oceans like their own planet. A colony arrived in Venice though it is unknown if any other members of the race made it to other worlds.

This colony of Saturnynian's were led by a female known as Rosanna Calvierri along with her son both of whom made a secret base in Venice on the planet Earth after falling through the crack in time that led them to live in an earlier period in the world's history. These two were not the only Saturnynians as there were at least 10,000 further males that lived beneath the waters but they were largely devoid of any female breeding stock. To rectify this solution and save their species, the began a process where they took in young girls in their human guises under the pretense of providing them a better education. However, once amongst them, Rosana and her son would bite their necks where they would first replenish their own fluids as well as possibly convert the human into a Saturnynian hybrid with the process eventually turning them into a full breed member of the species.

Whilst this was happening and they were developing a breeding stock of human converted Saturnynians, Rosana also intended to use an advanced alien device to create a tidal wave that would sink the city of Venice beneath the water this providing her children a habitat for them to share the Earth as well as continue their civilization. However, their actions unwittingly brought the attention of the Eleventh Doctor and his Companion Amy Pond. Over the course of events, the female breeding stock was killed in an explosion and the device was destroyed as well as her human disguised son was killed by exposure to concentrated sunlight. This led to Rosana willingly committing suicide by keeping her human disguise on as she jumped into the water with her children unable to tell that it was their mother who they had feasted on. Her last words to The Doctor that all that was required was the loss of one city for the survival of her race. Furthermore, she stated that she hoped that he would remember them as she fell into the water to her death thus leading to the demise of the Saturnynian colony on Earth and possibly leading to their extinction.(From the Vampires Of Venice 2010). via
