  • The Slitheen were a family of Raxacoricofallapatorians who attempted to create nuclear war on Earth with an aim towards complete destruction. They intended to sell the remains as fuel (Aliens of London/World War Three).

    Later, a survivor of their clash with the Doctor became Mayor of Cardiff and proposed the building of a nuclear reactor with intentional faults in order to blow up the Earth (Boomtown).
