Train-Flight was a Seventh Doctor comic published in Doctor Who Magazine.

Summary Edit

The Doctor arranges a jazz session at the Royal Albert Hall with his best friend Sarah Jane Smith, but their train is sidetracked by an insect-like race eager to feast on the contents.

Characters Edit

References Edit

  • The Seventh Doctor provides an explanation to why Ace is absent, revealing he has left her in the Cretaceous period.
  • The Doctor says that Oscar Peterson is playing at the Hall.
  • K9 is mentioned, but not seen.

Notes Edit

  • This was the first strip in the magazine to be edited by John Freeman, although John had edited the rest of the content of the magazine since Issue 137. The strip had previously been edited by Richard Starkings.
  • Train-Flight has minor links with following stories building to the Mandragora storyline.
  • Elisabeth Sladen was paid the princely sum of £40 as an "appearance fee".

Continuity Edit

  • The Doctor and Sarah Jane share a hug in this story as the Doctor apologises for the way he abandoned her on Earth, though Sarah Jane would continue to hold this against him in School Reunion. However, School Reunion also appears to contradict this story, as it is implied in onscreen dialogue that Sarah and the Doctor had not met since The Hand of Fear (Sarah remarks on the Doctor's regeneration, and he confirms that there had been six regenerations between when they had last met and now).
