- You may be looking for Shipwreck!, an earlier DWA comic story.
Shipwrecked was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2013.
The Doctor and Clara arrive in the TARDIS underwater close to a sunken pirate ship. Suiting up into diving suits, the pair go and explore in search of pirate treasure. But the treasure is still being guarded by the pirates, who talk of a curse. Clara is captured and tied to the mast destined to stay aboard the blighted ship like the rest of them! Using an empty spacesuit filled with air, the pirates are distracted by what they think is the Doctor's rescue, but the Doctor seizes the opportunity to sneak round the back and even before freeing Clara — grabs the pirates' treasure chest. As he suspected, the chest contains not jewels and trinkets but a memory egg — a device that stores the minds of a spaceship's crew over centuries-long journeys. The Pirates return to find the Doctor with the memory egg, explaining that they found it in the wreck of a strange metal ship they found on an island. The Doctor explains the egg must have developed a fault and finds the off switch. With the memory egg no longer working, the Pirates are grateful the curse has been ended and to finally be allowed to rest in peace after the centuries of being kept alive beneath the sea. With their oxygen running low, the Doctor and Clara return to the TARDIS.
