Richard Stoneman-Merritt
Species: Human
Place of origin: Earth
Appearance: The Republican's Story

Richard Stoneman-Merritt was a member of His Majesty's Intelligence Service in the 17th century.

In 1666, he was assigned to arrest a band of papist conspirators led by William Rokeby. He attended Rokeby's meeting at the White Hart in disguise as a beggar, then went to meet Sergeant George Mullens. They returned to the pub with the police and attempted to arrest the conspirators. A fight ensued and was only halted when the Fourth Doctor informed all present that London was on fire.

Both sides worked together to fight the fire. When Rokeby saved a Huguenot and her child, Stoneman-Merritt realised Rokeby was a man of honour and conviction. He prevented Mullens from pursuing Rokeby, ordering him instead to focus on fighting the fire.

When Rokeby returned, Stoneman-Merritt was forced to arrest him. They fought in the street, but a section of burning building fell on Stoneman-Merritt, killing him. (PROSE: The Republican's Story)
