Rock Quasar and the Mudslugs of Gurrn was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2011.
Rock Quasar prepares to go hand-to-hand in combat against the giant slugs. The Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams arrive only to discover it is Hollywood in 1932. The action is taking place on a film set. Rory is excited to see his hero. He has long been a fan of Rock Quaser films. The "awesome" hero, Rick "Crusty" Cobbe, is the star of a series of box office hit films.
Following the "slug" off-set, Amy discovers it is a cover for aliens. Amy grabs a prop sink plunger to defend herself and returns to the Doctor and Rory. The aliens reveal themselves as the creative force behind the Rock Quaser films. Their films flopped on the Tri-D Holomovie circuit. They came to Hollywood, where their films were appreciated – Rory can even identity the sink plunger/mind probe prop from Star Horse Episode lV: Power of the Foals! Rory tells the Doctor there are only six episodes left of this, the last Rock Quasar serial. In return for giving Rory a starring role, the Doctor allows the aliens to stay and finish the episodes before getting them to leave Earth.
to be added
- Serial adventures set in space (like Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon) were popular cinematic entertainment in the 1930s and 1940s. Rock Quasar star Rick "Crusty" Cobbe is a reference to Buster Crabbe, who played both characters.
