The Frankenstein Particle was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2011.
On a colonial supply base on Figaro Xll, Doctor Trudo's experiment (477/B12) goes wrong when the base's particle accelerator shows an energy spike and looks like exploding. Before Trudo can shut it down, a new atomic particle breaks free from the machine and forces Trudo to do its bidding...
Something in the time/space vortex upsets the TARDIS. The Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams make an emergency landing. They arrive at the supply base to find it overrun by low-level intelligence Dronebots who are damaging certain power lines to channel all the energy to one location. The Dronebots turned on the human staff defending their work. Tracking the energy flow back to the laboratory, a stunned Trudo warns them that a lone Dronebot is absorbing all the energy, using the particle accelerator to feed and grow. Somehow it is "alive"! Racing to the controls, the Doctor boosts the energy. By overloading the system, he blows a fuse on the accelerator. With a pop, the Dronebots are rendered inactive and the base avoids a big bang. The "glowy-thing" in the Dronebots head has gone, possibly sent back to wherever it came from, but the Doctor notices a small hole in the roof...
On a hillside away from the base, a Dronebot (with the glowy-light in his head) looks on, marking the day the Time Lords waged war against the Atomon!
- This comic story sees the start of another story arc (like the recent Agent 99), with a recurring enemy for the Eleventh Doctor.
