The Greedy Gulper is a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2012.
Very shortly after arriving in a quiet, (and boring) primitive village, the Doctor finds some villagers dressed in not-very-scary sheets to appear ghostly and, drive him away from a sacrificial offering of fruit. Not running away, the Doctor is tied up and according to the only book surviving from their ancestors on Old Earth, the "sacred tex" foretells the coming of the greedy Gulper. The Doctor recognises the "sacred text" as a manual for an old video game. The Greedy Gulper doesn't exist and they have nothing to be afraid of. Suddenly a creature appears that looks like the Greedy Gulper. Encouraging the villagers to throw the fruit, the creature is knocked off balance and is revealed to be a human from a terra-forming company seeking to frighten the settlers that are already on the planet away. The exposed and captured employee of the terraforming company agree to the Doctors request to testify to the Shadow Proclamation meaning that the villagers are safe.
- The Shadow Proclamation is referenced as agents of policing and judgement.
