Kazran Sardick, a man of great authority and influence, the textbook definition of a panjandrum. He owns the skies above his world, claims his family tamed them. He holds the power of life or death over anyone who flies in them, and right now he’s the only person who can save the four thousand and three people aboard the spaceship that is currently trapped in the cloud belt.
He intends to do nothing, just let them die, but the Doctor isn’t having that.
Somehow he must convince Mr. Sardick that he’s a better, kinder man than he thinks he is.
