In the Can was a Doctor Who Adventures comic story featuring the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Prime Soup is being advertised on Television across the country. Kids love it. Just as Katy and her Dad are about to open a tin fresh back from the shopping, the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond burst in through a window.

They are too late to stop the can being opened and a huge soup creature erupts. The Doctor stops it in its tracks by thickening it with flour. A batch of the cans have been recalled by the company, which the Doctor has been investigating because of its use of subliminal messages in the adverts. The Doctor and Amy leave — taking the soup can with him.

Shortly afterwards, back at the factory, all fifty-seven cans from the missing batch have been returned, to the relief of the two aliens, Hebex and Eizcam, who are planning an invasion. When they open the cans to find out how their creatures have responded to high compression, they discover that one of the cans has been booby-trapped by the Doctor.

The aliens are knocked out long enough to be tied up and the incubation tank for their creatures (which should have been released at a later stage of their plan) is disabled. The aliens will be taken to the galactic authorities while Amy waits for the Doctor to make some "awful soup-related pun" — but he's not sure he CAN!
