Meteorite Meeting was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2012. It marked the introduction of a new companion, Decky Flamboon, being the third, in DWA's seven year history, to introduce a new companion specifically for DWA comics.
The Doctor has tracked a signal to a closed off children's playground in a park. A warden tells him to go away before vanishing. Inside the grounds the Doctor finds a crashed spacecraft and monstrous survivor — that also vanishes. As the Doctor attempts to stop an explosion that will rip the planet apart, a giant snake appears. With a flick of the sonic screwdriver the Doctor disables the creature's "shape shifting or invisibility nonsense". The creature introduces himself as Decky Flamboon, and is grateful that the Doctor sorted out the scrambled tech damaged in the crash. Decky was on a survey mission when his ship was hit by a Trutorian missile meteorite. He planned to take the missile off the planet before it explodes. The explosion would kill him, so the Doctor manages to send the missile on a one-way trip where it will safely explode in the Nebulae Void of Nothing. Without a ship or knowing the co-ordinates, Decky of course is left without a means to get back home to Sirus but the Doctor offers Decky a lift.
- The Doctor uses his sonic screwdriver to detect the crashed alien craft and the meteorite missile.
- Decky Flamboon was a design-a-companion competition winner submitted by reader Mitchell Collett.
