Planet of the Rorys was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2012.
The Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams on a jungle planet that the Doctor seems hesistant to explore. Before the TARDIS is removed from the planet Rory had stepped out and been left behind. Rory soon finds himself captured by a primitive tribe of look-a-like Rorys. He is rescued by more look-a-like Rorys armed with guns who intend to sell his body parts. He is rescued again by more advanced Rory look-a-likes who explain that Rory's arrival triggered the planets DNA key that would use the DNA in a self-creating, high speed evolutionary pattern. The result is a world of Rorys on a progressively stronger path of evolution towards the stronger "new Rorys". The sudden arrival of Amy sees the army of Rorys bow down to worship their Highness. It appears not only Rory's DNA was used in the template but also Rory's love for Amy strong enough to instil an instinct to worship Amy.
to be added
- This story is as much about Rory Williams' own development in strength of character as it is to his love for Amy Pond.
