The Cleverest King was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip that featured the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond.

Summary Edit

The Eleventh Doctor has forgotten that the alien planet Usunru in Galaxy 57 is home to the Kreech. He and Amy Pond are soon separated from the TARDIS and captured. The Kreech carry their prisoners back to their nest in a hollowed-out tree. They are received by Rangorr — Brainleader of the Kreech!

Only once in every ten generation is a Kreech born with a highly developed brain. Rangorr is a lonely ruler, fair and just, but lacking intelligent company. Rangorr wants to travel but is unwilling to leave his kind without a Brainleader, so he nominates the Doctor to take his place. The Doctor declines on the grounds that even he isn't a clever as Rangorr and suggests a crossword contest.

While Rangorr is busy concentrating on the puzzle, the Doctor and Amy sneak out and past the Kreech, back to the TARDIS, leaving Rangorr to remain the Brainleader.
