New and Improved was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2012.
On a supposedly relaxing forest planet, the Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams find themselves surrounded by the Propheetis, a war-hungry and ruthless species believed destroyed in the battle of the Cran Movement. These remaining Propheetis are welcoming and take them to the castle as guests. The Doctor and his friends are shown the laboratories. With their new sense of peace, the Propheetis, have been using the latest technology to rebuild themselves. So far the technology is unreliable and doesn't always do as it's told.
Scanning the artificial limbs with his sonic screwdriver the Doctor realises that they have an intelligence of their own and are resisting the Propheetis' attempts to use them as weapons. The Propheetis demand the Doctor help them to persuade the limbs to fight. The Doctor obliges and gives power to the artificial limbs. They turn on the bodies they are already attached to. The Doctor reckons that a few hours of beating themselves up before the limbs go offline should be long enough for the Proheteetis to change their ways and see some sense.
