The Upper Deck was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2011.
The Eleventh Doctor takes Amy Pond and Rory Williams to a recording of The Goon Show in London 1959 to Rory's delight. Atop a double-decker bus, they find frightened and alarmed passengers. The Doctor leads them up to a "third" deck. Whichever way they go they end up in the same place.
Through a window the Doctor sees a giant eye. He realises the bus is actually a shapeshifter. They are creatures which hide on developed worlds. They take on unassuming shapes, lure creatures inside and consume them. The Doctor explains the shapeshifter often takes on qualities it doesn't want.
Checking for traffic behind, the Doctor points his sonic screwdriver at the stop button, directly connected to the creature's nervous system, stunning it. The passengers leave the bus while the Doctor considers taking the creature to the Elliptical Zoo on Vatrama III.
