Food for Thought was a First Doctor comic story featuring Ben and Polly.

As of 2017, it was the only wholly-surviving story told in a visual medium which featured that particular TARDIS team, since Ben and Polly's only complete serial, The War Machines, also included Dodo. In fact, it was the comic debut of this TARDIS team, since Polly and Ben had only appeared in World Distributors annuals prior to this story — and then only with the Second Doctor.

Notes Edit

  • This is the first story of a very small number to feature Ben and Polly as companions of the First Doctor. It is at odds with the TV series, given that there was originally no narrative gaps between The War Machines, The Smugglers or The Tenth Planet to accommodate this, and Food For Thought makes no attempt to explain it. However, the 2006 short story The Three Paths later retconned this discrepancy.
