Tower of Power was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2012.
On the normally peaceful planet of Cobaltikar 45, the Doctor in the course of helping Decky Flamboon find the co-ordinates that can take him home, the Doctor is investigating a signal that is drawing energy from the universal atmosphere. The signal is traced to a replica of the Eiffel Tower which is responsible for the energy drain that could turn the planet to dust. Using the sonic screwdriver the Doctor is able to turn off the tower but it has been acting as a prison for Cobalikbot Acorn Delta a rogue robot that made illegal modifications to itself that posed a threat to the whole universe. Free from its prison, Acorn Delta goes on a rampage and indiscriminate destruction. Drawing its fire, Decky and the Doctor trick Acorn Delta into blasting the structural supports of the Eiffel Tower. The Tower then collapses and traps it. With a wave of his sonic screwdriver the Doctor reveals some Brancheerian symbols, coordinates for Decky's homeworld. It appears that it was a Brancheerian that "sold" the Eiffel Towers measurements and replicant tower in exchange for Cobaltikar Ore. Decky is appalled that the landmark was "sold" but is closer to finding his way home.
