Peril on the Sea was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2011.
Flashing his psychic paper, the Eleventh Doctor passes off Amy Pond, Rory Williams and himself as passengers aboard a cruise ship on the planet Ockora. Marvelling at the aquatic life that rises above the sea waves, the Doctor is horrified to find the "passengers" suddenly firing, with the ship's owner, Arix, offering a hundred-credit bonus to whoever gets the biggest catch!
Arix explains this is a hunting expedition, but is shocked when the cruiser is rocked by an attack from beneath. The Ockorans, usually a docile race, have begun to fight back, To sink the ship, they puncture the hold and the cruiser founders. Rory guides the passenger to the safety of the TARDIS, but the Doctor and Arix are thrown overboard. The Doctor is captured by the scarred protector of this world, a huge sea creature determined to avenge the persecution of his kind by the 'tormentors'. While the Doctor pleads with the creature, Arix shoots it from behind.
The Doctor swears to make sure this never happens again. Rising to the surface, he rejoins Amy and Rory onboard a floating TARDIS. With Arix and the other "passengers" all on board, the Doctor keeps his word and takes them to the local branch office of "Galactic Security", that justice may be done.
- The Ockorans were originally created by Steve Lyons for the novel series and were seen in The Final Sanction in the BBC Past Doctor Adventures.
