Junk Food was a Doctor Who Adventures comic story featuring the Tenth Doctor and Heather McCrimmon.


The Tenth Doctor and Heather arrive at the launch of a brand-new factory in the near future on Earth. Using waste conversion technology TRASH INC plans to end world hunger with their Convert-o-Matic, a fully automatic factory producing canisters of a "Generic Food Substitute" made from household rubbish!

The Doctor is naturally curious. He hides in the factory until it's quiet, then goes investigating. The factory, he finds, is a Supermassive Matter Transporter, an industrial teleport guarded by green one-eyed tentacled creatures. The Doctor realises an invasion is imminent. The creatures are hiding and being distributed across the world in the "food" canisters.

However, Heather falls into the transporter and finds herself on a planet where all the waste is being dumped. She captures one of the creatures (a Benjix), with a tyre when it follows her through the transporter. She uses the transporter to return. The Doctor has been busy with his sonic screwdriver and by "reversing the polarity" of the transmit beam, he sends the rubbish and the Benjix back home before breaking the transporter for good.




  • The DWA comic strip adventures were aimed at a younger audience and the artwork and colours were bold and bright, reflecting the tone of the magazine.
  • Self contained, one part stories were the norm.
  • This was another under the title 'The Tenth Doctor's Untold Stories'.
