Mandrels

Alien Species

Mandrels

Mandrels are natives of the plant Eden. They are aggressive, but slow moving. They are strong, but they are not immune from weapons.

The Doctor and Romana encountered a group of Mandrels on board the space liner the Empress after some escaped from a sample of Eden that had been taken by Professor Trsyt. Tryst was using the Mandrels to smuggle the hugely addictive, and deadly, drug Vraxoin.

After a Mandrel was electrocuted after attacking the Doctor the body quickly crumbled into a power - Vraxoin. By transporting live Mandrels Tryst was able to smuggle the drug without it being detected.
