Who's That Girl! was the Doctor Who back-up strip which appeared in the pages of The Incredible Hulk Presents #8-9. Like all in the series, it was monochromatic and featured the Seventh Doctor travelling alone at the beginning and ending of the story.
Aside from a few Second Doctor stories that were set in Season 6b, this story was unusual for being one of the only stories in any medium to depict the Doctor as voluntarily being an agent of the Time Lords. Here he is effectively the Time Lords' representative at a political conference.
An intergalactic treaty is about to be signed which will give the Frovians free access to the Kollian Dimension. The Doctor arrives in support of one of the signatories, the Frovian Prince Luj. But why is the Doctor now a woman? And just how much can the Doctor trust his royal friend?

The Doctor Edit
- Luj claims to have known at least two of the Doctor's past selves, but it's not clear if that includes the Seventh Doctor.
- Kasgi's impersonation of the Doctor includes her dressing in the Third Doctor's frilly shirt, the Fourth Doctor's scarf, the Fifth Doctor's coat, the Sixth Doctor's trousers and the Seventh Doctor's pullover.
- This story contained a gag later used in the parody The Curse of Fatal Death, briefly suggesting that the Doctor's apparent change of gender could lead to romantic relationships not possible had the Doctor remained male.
- It is never made clear exactly how Kasgi caught the Seventh Doctor and strapped him to the TARDIS console. He is simply shown as bound at the cliffhanger of part one.
- This story posits the notion that "aligning the timelines" would "speed up travel for several races". It is unclear what this means, as such a thing has not been referenced by any other Doctor Who fiction.
- The Doctor states that he has "reversed the polarity" of the electromagnet in the central column of the TARDIS, a phrase often used by his third incarnation.
