The Sentinel! was the Doctor Who back-up strip which appeared in the pages of The Incredible Hulk Presents #7. Like all in the series, it was monochromatic and featured the Seventh Doctor travelling alone at the beginning and ending of the story.
When the Seventh Doctor meets an ancient being named Seneschal who claims to have been responsible for human evolution itself, the Time Lord chastises him for meddling. Predictably, the being gets angry and chases the Doctor away. Too late, the time traveller understands that Seneschal has taken a sample of his DNA, with which he can, given billions of years, create a new race of Time Lords.

- Seneschal states that the Doctor stole the TARDIS, something which mentioned in many different stories in televised history, perhaps most prominently in TV: The Deadly Assassin, The Invasion of Time, Planet of the Dead, The Big Bang and The Doctor's Wife.
- As in other stories of the The Incredible Hulk Presents run, especially Who's That Girl, the Doctor here claims that something is an affront to Gallifreyan law. These are unusual cases where he seems to be a representative of the Time Lords, rather than being on the run from them, making statements rather like those he made after the Last Great Time War in defence of his own race.
