A Mess of Trouble Most Haunted

In the Stars was a Doctor Who Adventures comic story featuring the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond.

Summary Edit

Babylon in the year 905 BC is where the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond find themselves. The Doctor is curious when he spots the town's astronomer, Urtaki, updating his charts to include new stars! A new constellation has appeared in the sky — the locals have named it the Gryphon.

The Doctor, Amy and Urtaki watch as the stars suddenly come alive and a huge Gryphon appears. The Doctor suggests the stars are alien technology that has been observing, drawing on people's thoughts to create a new form for itself. Soldiers' blades are unable to harm it because it is composed of light and the swords pass straight through it.

However, Amy notices the flat side of the sword seems to be holding the Gryphon back. Realising that the reflection is enough to hold it back, the city quickly gather its mirrors and move in on the creature. Trapping it on all sides the Doctor and Amy put the final mirror panel into position on top, making sure that the creature can't fly off and escape.

After several hours the sun rises and when the mirrors are removed, the creature fades away. Just as stars are blotted out by the sun, so the creature's body (made from fake stars) is blotted out, leaving behind a armful of silver alien disks. With contact broken overnight from its operator, it has been left abandoned. Gathering the disks up the Doctor and Amy take them away with 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.
