After Life was the premiere story of Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor comic strip series published in 2014. It debuted the Eleventh Doctor's companion, Alice Obiefune.

Summary Edit

Alice Obiefune has just lost her mother when the Doctor explodes into her life.

But what does this grieving young woman have to do with the career of a 70s musician, an amnesiac alien, and a terrifying cosmic threat?

In the wake of the second Big Bang, find out what the Doctor gets up to when Amy and Rory aren't around!

Plot Edit

Alice Obiefune's mother has died, she's been laid off from her library assistant job, and she's being evicted from her flat. Then one day, a rainbow dog comes bounding down the street, being chased by the Eleventh Doctor. He invites her on the chase. He and Alice try to grab its tail, but the Doctor is distracted by a figure in the shadows, and runs smack into a pole. The dog gets away, and Alice and the Doctor shake hands and part ways.

Alice is back in her flat when the TARDIS materialises inside. The Doctor steps out and says she seemed sad. He listens as she tells him about her mother, then invites her into the TARDIS. He opens the doors, and Alice notes the control room is upside down. The Doctor corrects it and starts showing her around. Alice says the dog probably has an owner. The Doctor tells her the dog, a Kharitite, feeds on negative emotion, and she realises where it is going.

In the House of Commons, the Prime Minister's address is interrupted by the Kharitite. The Doctor and Alice arrive on the scene, and the growing Kharitite starts chasing them. The Doctor tells Alice to lead it outside. Before she can, it bursts out through the wall, attracted to the negative emotions of the massing UNIT soldiers. They are going to disintegrate the Kharitite, but before they can the TARDIS materialises and a giant walking squid emerges and hugs the alien dog. The Doctor explains that the Kharitite is the squid's pet. The Doctor, Alice, the squid and the Kharitite head into the TARDIS. Alice needs to deal with her landlord, but the Doctor offers her all of time and space.
