Hitching Point was a Doctor Who Adventures comic story that featured the Tenth Doctor and Heather McCrimmon.

Summary Edit

In Peru in 1911, explorer Hiram Bingham is in search of the lost city of Macchu Picchu. When he arrives, he is surprised to find The Doctor and Heather. They are attempting to cure temporal hiccups through the use of time holes.

Hiram is angry to find them there, but gets sucked through a time hole, which closes behind him. The whole world changes. Heather and the Doctor find themselves inside a city of eight foot tall lizard men. The Lizard men chase them and, while they are hiding, they encounter an old bearded man who believes the Doctor can save them from the Incasaurs.

He takes them to the hitching point where they see, through a time hole, Hiram in Macchu Piccu during the Incan time. The Incasaurs find them and reveal they opened a portal from another dimension because their sun was dying. The Doctor and Heather are ordered executed but Hiram shakes hands with the old bearded man, an aged Hiram, creating a massive discharge of temporal energy, stopping the time holes from ever existing. The Doctor and Heather leave, allowing Hiram to discover Macchu Picchu without any memory of them.

Notes Edit

  • The DWA comic strip adventures were aimed at a younger audience and the artwork and colours were bold and bright, reflecting the tone of the magazine.
  • Self contained, one part stories were the norm in the early issues later being expanded to two-parters.
