Track Attack was a Doctor Who Adventures comic story featuring the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond.

Summary Edit

It's July 1885, and somewhere on the Northampton to Euston rail line, the Doctor and Amy Pond have made their way to the front of a steam train speeding out of control at impossible speeds. The driver is unable to stop or even slow the train, so the Doctor climbs out and releases all the steam by undoing a valve with his sonic screwdriver.

Once the train had slowed to a stop, the Doctor discovers it was taken over by a Shift Agent, a creature without a solid body that takes controls of machines. The Shift Agent needs to recover dark matter that has been leaking and could very soon rip the planet apart. Tracing the dark matter to Euston Station, the steam train was the fastest means of travel the Shift Agent could find.

Releasing the carriages, the Doctor helps the Shift agent by heating up the water molecules with his sonic. With the Shift Agent's help, the engine soon reaches Euston Station. After jumping the queue, the Doctor locates the dark matter amongst the luggage. It is handed over to the Shift Agent, who takes it away safely, avoiding a "worst case scenario".

Notes Edit

  • The DWA comic strip adventures were aimed at a younger audience and the artwork and colours were bold and bright, reflecting the tone of the magazine.
  • Self contained, one part stories were the norm.
