You may be looking for faster-than-light travel.

Faster Than Light was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2012.

Summary Edit

The Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams arrive onboard the star ship Solaros 10 as the crew — Professor Parsek and pilot Sorben — prepare to travel faster than the speed of light for the first time. The Doctor's warning comes to late. As the solar stack redlines, the Professor is caught in a blast of a condensed solar energy flare with the unfortunate side effect of transforming him into some kind of neoform reptilioplas. A second blast leaves Sorben out cold.

As the ship's energy drives go into meltdown, the Doctor (working with his sonic screwdriver), reverses the polarity of the energy dischargers. The mutation field is drained and Professor Parsek is returned to normal. As the TARDIS leaves the ship. Parsek and Sorben are revealed to be Silurians, grateful to the unknown strangers for their lives.
