Gumfight is a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2013.
The Doctor knows something is not right when they arrive in London with free eazi-gum dispensers on every street corner.
Arriving back in today's London, the Doctor and Clara find free bubble-gum machines on every street corner. Seemingly too good to be true, the gum doesn't taste very nice and the pavements are splatted with chewed up lumps. While the Doctor investigates and can't find anything on the company behind the gum dispensers, the gum appears to be taking on a life of its own. The gum joins up with other lumps and, like cells, they create a giant gum creature! The "creature" identifies itself as a Glohbb from another dimension. It needed a big globby form to inhabit in order to survive. It plan was to carry on growing that it could smother the planet. The Doctor, however, has a different plan and after spotting a nearby Dive centre manages to find a big tank of oxygen. Feeding the oxygen tank hose into the gum the Doctor does what anyone would do and blows a bubble. The bubble bursts and the Glohbb's mind is returned to its own dimension leaving only the problem of clearing up the splattered mess of gum.
