Dawn of the Living Bread was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2011.

Summary Edit

After closing hours, in a shopping mall, Dawn, a cleaner, is running for her life. She is chased by three creatures that look like The Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams, but with green skin and crazed red eyes. Heading for the panic room in Bleachers Pharmacy, Dawn is rescued by the real The Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams.

The Doctor explains to Dawn (who thinks they're zombies or part of a crazy experiment), that an invasion in under way by the PoriPhylum, a "space yeast" that can take the form of its enemies. Dawn guides them through the mall to the food courts. With the PoriPhylum in pursuit, they flood the floor with as much sugary pop as possible.

The PoriPhlums are drawn to the alternative fluid source and start to gorge. "They slurp until they blurp!" until, the sugar, reacting with the yeast bacteria, turns them into giant cake shapes.

Dawn is left to clear up the mess. The PoriPhlum are loaded into the TARDIS. The Doctor knows of a lovely planet where the ground is spongy and the frost is made of icing sugar, somewhere where the PoriPhylum will feel right at home.
