Alternating Current was the first story published in the Doctor Who Comic in 2020, starring the Thirteenth Doctor.

It picked up directly from where A Little Help from My Friends left off, with the Doctor and Team TARDIS having to deal with an alternate timeline, caused by the events of the aforementioned story, in which the Sea Devils have ruled over Earth for over a century. The Tenth Doctor returned once again for this story, as well as an alternate timeline version of Rose Tyler.

The story had a turbulent production history due to the then-ongoing COVID-19 pandemic; it was originally intended for publication in the summer of 2020 as part of Titan's previous ongoing comic, Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor, in issues 5 through 8 of its second year, before being delayed. When it eventually released, Titan chose to discontinue their Thirteenth Doctor title in favour of a new title.

The story also leads directly into the Time Lord Victorious comic story, Defender of the Daleks, which ended up releasing two months prior, due to the delay.
