Finders Keepers was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2012.
Young student Schef is ridiculed when he opens up his compression-sack and presents the TARDIS to his fellow students as part of a class show-and-tell. While he is in detention, the school is invaded by a party of cyborg soldiers (Yeamorg Warriors). The Warriors have been hunting the Doctor by following sightings of the TARDIS across the planet.
While the Warriors wait for the Doctor to emerge from the TARDIS, the Doctor gets Scheff's attention. He explains that the TARDIS' HADS settings have let him distract the Warriors with a number of short trips while Amy Pond and Rory Williams disarmed their warship that has been carrying its supplies. All the while, the Doctor has been busy making a gadget to use against the Warriors.
Having adapted parts of the subliminal education enhancers, the Doctor fires a stream of background data at the Warriors, overloading their brains rendering them unconscious for a few days. Plenty of time for Schef and his teacher to get them removed by the galactic law enforcement authorities under Article 57 of the Shadow Proclamation.
