Le Tour de Death was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2012.

Summary Edit

The Doctor takes Amy Pond and Rory Williams to the lava planet that hosts "Le Tour de Parisian Dix" — an extreme unicycling race. Eventually finding a path amidst the ever-changing path of lava, the new arrivals find themselves directly in the path of the unicyclists, causing a pile up of contestants.

The race leader picks up his unicycle and races off. Another competitor, armed with a "pulveriser" badly disguised as a bicycle, seems intent on stopping him. The Doctor's gang pick up the unicycles and give chase. They soon catch up with the armed competitor, who is rendered unconscious.

He turns out to be a Galactic Marshal on the hunt for a dangerous criminal — the competitor in front. He isn't trying to win but to escape! The Doctor shows some pretty nifty moves on his unicycle. He uses his sonic screwdriver to weaken the crust. The dangerous criminal is thrown off his unicycle and the Doctor wins the race — for a record eleventh time!
