After being introduced here, Gantz would appear in The Warrior's Story and Frobisher's Story.

Notes Edit

Abel's Story colour

The colour reprint of the above panel.

  • This story was reprinted in DWCC 20 and Voyager.
  • The title Abel's Story, when paired with Kane's Story, forms a reference to Cain and Abel, two siblings mentioned in the book of Genesis of the Bible.

Continuity Edit

  • This story implies that the TARDIS has a mind of its own, saying that "its circuitry can detect every disturbance in the temporal fabric of the galaxy... and if necessary, intervene." The story shows the TARDIS overriding the Doctor's destination settings without his knowledge. (TV: The Doctor's Wife)
