The Arkwood Experiments was the comic debut of the Third Doctor, UNIT and the Brigadier. It followed the first major break in Doctor Who comic strip history — a nearly two month gap since the Second Doctor's swansong. The gap somewhat mirrored the unusually long seven months gap between season 6 and season 7 on television.

Summary Edit

Ten-year-old genius Cedric Mathews drugs his school friends and sends them on a rampage across the country.

Characters Edit

References Edit

  • The Doctor and the Brigadier are attacked by an aggressive flock of parrots.
  • The parrots are last seen flying off towards the town to wreak havoc there — and oddly, are never seen nor mentioned again.
  • Among the zoo animals affected by Cedric's drug are parrots, penguins, a gazelle, a panther, and a lion.

Notes Edit

  • The first words spoken by the Third Doctor in his comic book tenure is: "What?" It is said in response to the Brigadier asking him to meet him at the zoo.
