This story was never produced.

Therefore, its known narrative elements are not a part of the Doctor Who universe. It may have been the basis for a similar story in another medium, however — and that story may indeed be a part of the DWU.

Ice Time Illegal Alien

Crime of the Century was a story that was to have been a part of a theoretical Season 27, had Doctor Who continued to be produced beyond Survival. It was written by Ben Aaronovitch.

Crime of the Century would have continued straight on from Ice Time with Sam Tollinger, a character introduced in that story, calling for the Doctor's help. This story would have featured "drug smuggling, armed assaults and hardly any science fiction content."[1]. This story would also have introduced Kate Tollinger, Sam's "safe-cracking, lock-picking daughter, - and a new locale, Sam's mansion house." This would have given the Doctor and Kate a base and a set of contacts to draw upon when they visited Earth.[1] The planned opening was for Kate to sneak off from a garden party to crack a safe, only to find the Doctor waiting inside it for her, remarking "what kept you?" Andrew Cartmel has admitted, however, that they didn't really have an idea of what the story would include beyond that. (DOC: Doctor Who: Endgame)

Casting Edit

One of the actors suggested for the role of Kate, the Doctor's new companion, was Julia Sawalha, while Tom Georgeson, who had previously played Kavell in TV: Genesis of the Daleks and the Detective Inspector in TV: Logopolis, was suggested for the role of Sam Tollinger.[2]
