The King and the Tripeberry was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2011. It featured the Eleventh Doctor with Amy Pond and Rory Williams.

Summary Edit

The Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams Arrive at the Royal Court on Husseloof Quatrine with a tripeberry – a Hussuloofian delicacy fit for a King. Trubbs, the King's aide, announces the visitors to the King and the Doctor is horrified to find the plump King enthroned, demanding gifts — that is the rule — and being tended to by a cohort of subjects, some bound in chains. When one of the subjects is punished for being distracted by the tripeberry she is punished for not paying the King attention – as is the rule.

Not accepting the bullying King's explanation that his subjects love to serve him, the Doctor uses his sonic to free them from their chains. Yet the subjects are scared and the King orders his orders to take the visitors to the static dungeons. Amy grabs the tripeberry and throws it to the ground. The Hussuloofians scramble to eat the shattered fruit – all except the King, who rages at the distracted Hussuloofians. The Doctor leaps forward. His sonic screwdriver exposes the King as a Trit — a social parasite that assumes the body of people in power so they can be pampered and served without question.

The guards turn on the Trit and take him away, leaving a vacancy in King position. The Doctor suggests it should be taken up by the King's aide Trubbs with one rule — no more rules!
