Earworm was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2011.

Summary Edit

Leeds, 2011, and young Danny's earache is hurting and he keeps hearing weird music. His dad is worried enough to take him to hospital — where the Doctor is waiting to see him. The receptionist (Amy Pond) takes Danny and his Dad to see the Eleventh Doctor, who examines Danny's ear with his sonic screwdriver.

The sonic device causes a tiny alien worm (a Harmonelid) to burst from Danny's ear in a rush of green slime. It falls to the floor, where its growth is accelerated and it escapes by hurling itself through a glass window. Waiting outside the window with a small fishing net, Rory Williams fails to catch the worm. It zooms off and conceals itself in a busy hospital waiting room.

Believing the worm to have found a new home in somebody else's ear the Doctor finds Mr Richards — a deaf, elderly patient in a wheelchair, smiling and tapping away to himself. Another quick examination with the sonic screwdriver reveals that the Harmonelid has shrunk and re-settled itself. As the gentleman seems quite happy and the Harmonelid only presents a danger to young ears, the Doctor and his friends have successfully lured the worm out of Danny's ear. They take their leave.
