Buy, Buy, Baby! was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2012.
Summary[edit | edit source]
The Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams find themselves in an alien market place in the year 12002. The crowds are stampeding, trampling each other in a frenzy to buy. Even Amy and Rory seem affected by the urge to buy stuff. Rory wants a new holo disk and Amy a refreshing drink.
A scan with the sonic screwdriver reveals all the advertising posters in the city are made from psychic paper. Passing himself off as Doctor John Smith from Pest Control, the Doctor is granted an audience with the head of Sluggman Advertising Agency. Mr Sluggman is a giant slug sitting in the middle of a large room filled with gold and treasures and wearing a thought-projecting helmet controlling the psychic posters. Before the Doctor can stop him, Sluggman uses his influence to turn Rory and Amy against him and they try to capture him.
The Doctor snatches Amy's can of fizzy Hyper Cola and threatens to spray it all over the treasures. While Sluggman is distracted, Rory snatches the helmet from Sluggman's head and passes it to Amy. She changes all the posters in the city, turning them into rip-off warnings. Sluggman is ruined!
With customers queuing to get their money back, he faces being sued and sent to debtors' prison. Sluggman panics and flees in his craft, empty-handed. Amy looks forward to a nice cup of tea to get rid of the taste of Hyper Cola!
