Wave Machine was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip.

Summary Edit

On the planet Smilonda the top holiday destination in the 423rd century, a disgruntled holiday-maker, Grone, plans his revenge on all the tourists who have spoilt the place. Grone has been visiting regularly since a child and remembers the planet in the old days, when it was lovely and peaceful.

To scare away the visitors, he activates a remote controlled, giant, metal crab, which rises from out of the sea. While the Doctor is busy buying ice creams, the tourists flee the beach and Amy Pond is tossed around by the giant claws. The Doctor returns and although impressed by the magnificent crab, uses his sonic screwdriver to override Grone's remote control box and turn it against him.

After digging a hole and burying Grone in the sand up to his neck, the Doctor points out that Grone doesn't own the universe and he would be better off trying to be a bit friendlier and having some fun. Very soon Grone is using the crab again, but this time as an attraction to entertain the children.
