Doctor Who and the Adaptation of Death was the first short story in the Short Trips anthology Short Trips: Transmissions. It was written by Graeme Burk. It featured the Eighth Doctor and Charley Pollard.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Ari Leventhal has made a film, Invasion Earth: 2062 AD, that depicts the joint human-Kubthukian invasion of the Quav'lor ship. However, he is abducted by the Kubthukians and put on trial for misrepresenting their representative in the invasion, Ekode. For their evidence, they kidnap the Eighth Doctor and use his memories of the event, in which he and Charley also participated.

Ari's defence doesn't go well until Charley arrives with a message for the Kubthukians from the Creatron Artists and Artisans Associates. The CAAA wants to option their story for a film. They depart excitedly to discuss their options.

As the Doctor notes to Charley and Ari, the Kubthukians consider profit as important as truth.
