Dog of War! was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2011.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The TARDIS arrives in the middle of the English Civil War, 26 July 1643. As the soldiers surround the Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams, Prince Rupert of the Rhine rides up and declares the battle lost and demands their immediate surrender. He unleashes his "Dog of War", a giant poodle.

The Doctor is quick to warn Rory and Amy to block their ears. The dog emits a bark that freezes the higher brain functions, leaving the soldiers unable to move or speak. As Prince Rupert boasts about his remarkable dog, "Boye", his soldiers collect the other side's weapons. Suddenly Boye lunges at the Doctor.

Using his sonic screwdriver the Doctor deflects the bark back on the dog, leaving it stunned. The stunned dog reveals on his back, a previously invisible, secret rider, itself a dog-like creature. Awakening, the creature identified itself as Parzival of the Vegracandis. When challenged to explain its behaviour, it reveals it sought to gain influence over the planet by getting close to the King. Its plan thwarted, the Doctor takes Parzival away with them in the TARDIS to take him home.
