On the Cards was a Doctor Who Adventures comic story featuring the Eleventh Doctor and Decky Flamboon.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The Doctor and Decky Flamboon arrive on Christmas Eve in 2012 to find a house full of festivities — but without people. A spilt glass on the floor raises the Doctor's suspicions of something bad. As they look at the cards on the mantelpiece, they see the images of the family running in terror. A card suddenly leaps into life, growing to a giant size and snaps shut trapping the Doctor and Decky in another dimension. Inside the card they meet Kirsty and Shane who are looking for the rest of their family and their two children. The Doctor deduces that this is the work of an Edger — a predator that can only exist in two-dimensional environments. Having brought the cards to life and captured the family, the Edger is resting before before feeding and the Doctor uses his sonic screwdriver to open up a portal between the cards. Racing between the cards they collect up the family before arriving at the final card where the Edger has the children trapped in its tentacles. Decky lets out a loud roar that brings an avalanche of snow down on top of the Edger. The children are snatched and the family make a final dash back through the portal returning to their home. Snatching up the Christmas cards the Doctor throws it on the fire. The Edger cant be destroyed but its route into this dimensional has been destroyed. Reunited once again the festivities continue with glasses being raised to the Doctor and Decky.
