Opening narration box Edit

The Zaan will only exchange Martha for the Treed Crystal they need to power the Vortex Cannon!

Summary Edit

The Doctor arrives in an enormous stadium on the Zaan homeworld. There are Zaan warships in the sky above and the Vortex Cannon in centre place. As agreed, the Zaan allows Martha to rejoin the Doctor in exchange for the Crystal. The Doctor hands over the crystal and begs the Zaan not to use it in the Vortex Cannon. However, the Zaan ignore the Doctor's warning and activate the weapon and turn it on the Doctor.

The Doctor had heard rumours of the Vortex Cannon and, as hoped, the Vortex Cannon is a trap. As the Doctor and Martha fight to reach the TARDIS and escape, the Vortex Cannon creates a whirlpool in time as Time is folded in on itself, trapping the planet in a time loop.

From a distance the Doctor and Martha watch with some regret that the Zaan civilisation is now gone forever. Time, the Doctor decides, to find some fun!

Notes Edit

  • Supporting the series of collectible Doctor Who trading cards, the magazine carried a regular four page, individually titled comic strip of the Tenth Doctor's adventures.
  • The artwork and colours were bold and bright, reflecting the tone of the magazine and, as did Doctor Who Adventures, reflected the appeal to readers younger than those catered to by Doctor Who Magazine.
  • The Battles in Time comic strip sought to reinforce the association of its Doctor with the one seen on screen with "props" from the TV series: blue/brown suit, sonic screwdriver, psychic paper and his intelligent glasses.
