A Mess of Trouble was a comic story published in Doctor Who Adventures. It was written by Eddie Robson.

Summary Edit

From space, Posadise looks a beautiful planet with two large rings around it. However, the Posadians are an untidy race. They leave the planet's unique weather system, a system that involves huge sandstorms, to collect up all the discarded rubbish and take it into the upper atmosphere to form the two rings (along with several fairly large asteroids).

The Doctor and Amy Pond arrive during a state of emergency. From out of nowhere, small blue furry aliens who speak in a very basic language have "invaded" the planet with an assortment of sprays, weapons and cannisters. As the Posadians prepare to attack the invaders with a missile launch, the Doctor, having translated a few words, bundles one of the Posadian leaders and the a blue creature into the TARDIS and takes them to one of the "invaded" cities.

The Posadian leader is stunned to find that the new arrivals are not invading but cleaning! Their guns and sprays are no more than cleaning products — they come from one of the asteroids and are tired of all the planet's rubbish being dumped in space. The Posadians, realising what they have been doing, call off their attack and agree to clean up their act!
