Dinosaurs in New York! was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2011.
Summary[edit | edit source]
The Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams answer a call from the White House. They arrive in Manhattan Island, New York, to find it evacuated and overrun by dinosaurs. Escaping from a Tyrannosaurus Rex in an abandoned cab, they collide with a fire hydrant and Rory receives a bang to his head. Amy takes him to safety in the Empire State Building only to find "Raptor" tracks down the corridors. The Doctor meanwhile follows the dinosaurs that appear to be concentrated around the Times Square area.
Riding the back of a brontosaurus the Doctor is once more faced with an old enemy, Professor Saurian. Having escaped the volcano in Hawaii, Saurian has built a rollback machine and intends to roll-back time to the Jurassic Age and make the Earth perfect for his people to colonise. Using his telepathic links with the other dinosaurs, Saurian warns the Doctor that his friends are already doomed as the raptors move in.
Angry, the Doctor repeats his warning to Saurian and uses his sonic screwdriver to "reverse the polarity of the neutron flow" of the roll-back machine. Saurian rages as before his eyes the dinosaurs disappear and are sent back to the Jurassic Age. The Doctor warns Saurian to step away from his machine but refusing to be beaten, Saurian stays with his machine and like the dinosaurs gets caught in the time field and fades away. It's not long after that the Doctor rejoins Amy and a bandaged Rory back at the TARDIS, wondering what Saurian will try next.
