Cedric Mathews was a ten-year-old student at Arkwood Private School. A genius, he used his skill at chemistry to create a formula which enhanced aggression and tested it on the animals at a local zoo his class visited on a field trip. When the normally peaceful animals suddenly became aggressive, the Third Doctor and the Brigadier arrived to investigate. They traced the source of the trouble to the visiting Arkwood students, but were too late to stop Mathews from giving the formula to his fellow students in an attempt to take over the country and overcome adult control of his life. The Doctor used the school's chemistry lab to create a pacifying drug which stopped the rampaging students and Mathews was sent to a detention centre. (COMIC: The Arkwood Experiments)
