Bad Vibrations Track Attack

About Face was a comic strip, published in Doctor Who Adventures, featuring the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond.

Summary Edit

Arriving onboard a spaceship, the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond are soon attacked by a creature. It is referred to as "the Charonid" by the ship's only conscious crewmember, Cormac, who fires a stun pistol. The Charonid runs off.

Cormac explains it knocked out all the other crew, but when the Doctor and Amy find the unmarked body of the pilot they are suspicious. The Doctor recalls the Charonid being body swappers and with the pilot having been stunned, he guesses that Cormac is the Caronid.

Cormac is about to fire when the real Cormac (in the Charonid's body), arrives, but is caught in the Doctor's force-field trap. Cormac is returned to his own body, but the Charonid may have escaped into another. When Amy goes to pull the lever that will destroy the Charonid, there is an energy discharge that swaps Amy and the Charonid back to their own bodies. The Doctor rightly guessed that Amy would never have pulled the lever. Furthermore her eye colour had changed to red.
