Nineveh! was the final story published in The Incredible Hulk Presents. It was surprisingly similar to the storyline of the television story The Doctor's Wife, which aired over twenty years later.

Summary Edit

The Seventh Doctor encounters the Watcher of Nineveh, a legendary killer of Gallifreyans.

Plot Edit

Against programming, the TARDIS brings the Seventh Doctor to a place without stars — a place in what the Doctor calls "null space". He investigates, only to discover it is a junkyard full of old TARDISes. His exploration is cut short, however, by the arrival of the Watcher of Nineveh, a spooky figure of Gallifreyan legend. The Watcher, it turns out, has lured many Time Lords to their deaths.

The Doctor initially tries to fight back against the Watcher, but quickly discovers the being has no corporeal existence. Seeing no alternative, the Doctor simply runs, eventually finding his way back to the TARDIS. Even this is no sanctuary, however, since the Watcher can penetrate and inhabit the TARDIS.

In the end, the only thing that saves the Doctor is the Watcher's recognition that the Doctor is in his seventh body. Since Time Lords have thirteen lives, it's not yet time for the Doctor to die.
