Ghost World was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2011.

Summary Edit

Four "teenage" aliens are camped out in the ruins on the third moon of the planet Callicial for a dare. Their mood is one of excitement, fear and suspicion as they wait out the night in the hope of seeing (and capturing photographic evidence), of the ghosts believed to haunt the moon and the reason for it not being properly colonised.

They are spooked by the arrival of the TARDIS with the Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams. They all soon witness the floating apparition of a nightclub singer. The Doctor takes a moment to wonder why the ghost looks so human, given that humans have never been to this system before. Very soon the moon is full of dancers, footballers, singers, floating heads and a knight in armour.

Rory is first to recognise the knight — Alex Redman who played Sir Winterhill in the TV show he used to watch as a kid, The Black Castle. Amy recognises Lady Catherine Pryde and the Doctor realises that the "ghosts" are all characters from TV: TV signals that have travelled all the way from Earth.

Something in the moon's atmosphere is making the signals visible. Amongst the ruins, the Doctor finds an old transmission station. Using his sonic screwdriver to generate white noise, he blocks the ghostly signals, leaving the sky filled with amazing lights. As the TARDIS crew prepare to leave, the alien teenagers are left talking about setting up a new tourist attraction.
