The Doctor Strikes Back was a TV Comic story featuring the Second Doctor, John and Gillian.

Summary Edit

Part One Edit

The Second Doctor, John and Gillian materialize in a small cave. After checking the TARDIS's Year Meter the Doctor decides that his grandchildren should stay in the cave while he scouts ahead. He walks a short distance and sees a Dalek outpost. Going back to the TARDIS, he decides to get revenge by infiltrating the garrison with his Dalek disguise.

Part Two Edit

The Doctor successfully walks into one of their main buildings and hides in the planning room. Several minutes later, he overhears that the planet is rich in the materials Daleks use to reproduce, and that the Dalek Supreme is on his way to supervise the production of these Daleks. The Doctor sneaks into the mines where the Daleks are gathering the material and estimates that they have enough to create 10,000 Daleks. He takes off the top of his disguise to get a better look, and some Daleks see that he is an intruder!

Part Three Edit

Luckily, the Doctor's disguise is much faster than the real Daleks. He escapes the Daleks, but they alert the entire outpost to an intruder's presence. The Daleks begin destroying themselves in attempts to find the Doctor. The Dalek Supreme sends a message to all the Daleks to "stop all exterminating at once". This gives the Doctor an idea, and he pinches his nose and impersonates the Dalek Supreme. He sends a message to all the Daleks telling them to destroy themselves. A Dalek enters the room, but the Doctor doesn't notice!

Part Four Edit

The Doctor sees the Dalek and shoots him with his disguise. The Daleks obey the Doctor's order and destroy themselves. The Supreme watches this in his flying saucer and is enraged. The Doctor runs to the TARDIS and dematerializes mere seconds before the Supreme obliterates the cave with strike rockets. The Doctor tells John and Gillian, "By crippling the garrison I have struck a devastating blow against the Daleks... There will be many more!".
