The Panic Room was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2012.
Believing himself to be safe in his panic room in the Palace of Gorm on the planet Arabia, the Emperor reaches a new level of panic when the TARDIS materialises and the Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams emerge. The Emperor immediately orders his head of security, Bocwar, to be beheaded. In the ensuring chaos a huge green dragon-like serpent appears and towers over them. The Doctor encourages the Emperor out of hiding, and explains they are holograms and part of the panic room's defences. Bocwar is saved much to his own surprise as the Doctor explains the serpent is a panic creature that has been feeding off of the Emperor's fears. Amy has been preparing a chill-out zone for the Emperor with soothing drinks (and nibbles) called for. As the Emperor calms down and starts to relax the panic creatures threats are ignored and it finally finds itself shrinking down in size until it is able to be picked up by the Doctor and placed safely in an urn until the Doctor can take it somewhere peaceful. A more relaxed Emperor is so impressed by Bocwar's "holograms" that he offers him a raise.
- The Doctor is quickly able to identify a Panic creature.
- The chill-out zone is a calming area based more on the idea of a green-room (or hospitality suite) used by actors to relax before making public appearances than an area of a nightclub.
