Harvest of the Sycorax was the third story in Classic Doctors, New Monsters. It featured the Seventh Doctor and the Sycorax.

Publisher's summary Edit

In the far future, humanity has a remedy for everything. Whatever the problem, Pharma Corps has the answer and a designer disease tailored to every human's blood-type. Zanzibar Hashtag has no need to be sad, scared, stressed, or depressed ever again.

That is, until vicious aliens arrive on her space station intent on opening its Vault. What will it mean for the human race if the Sycorax take control of what's inside?

And when the Seventh Doctor arrives on the scene, can he convince Zanzibar to care about her life long enough to help him?

References Edit

The Doctor Edit

  • Blood control is able to control the Doctor's body and behaviour, but he retains his free will.
  • The Doctor is able to shut down his mind when under attack to stop outside influences from taking advantage of his intelligence.

The Sycorax Edit

  • The Sycorax's motto and battle cry is "Sycorax strong! Sycorax mighty! Sycorax rock!".
  • As a form of worship, the Sycorax make a huge statue of their own image out of the skulls of those species whom they have murdered. The Sycorax priest intends to add Zanzibar's to the collection once he has killed her.
  • The Sycorax are also weak to blood control. Zanzibar takes a blood sample from the dead Sycorax priest and she and the Doctor use it in the Sycorax's blood controllers to trick the Sycorax into hibernation.

Technology Edit

  • Human beings seem to have continued to invest in smart technology. They have watches with built in apps that analyse and report their health. Humans will now also date each other based on the results of dating apps, rather than use their natural instincts, which have been suppressed by the drugs that they take.
  • Translators are required to help the humans understand the Sycoraxic spoken by the Sycorax.
  • The Sycorax ship is a hollowed-out meteor, which uses its molten core as fuel. The Doctor finds the design undesirable.
