Terror from the Swamp was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2012.

Summary Edit

The Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams are dining with the Jonsons in 1929 Louisiana. Dinner conversation turns to talk of a "terrifying beast" that has taken whole families and not long after the trio of guests go monster hunting. All three are soon captured by a giant creature that drags the bodies of to a hollowed out trunk which it appears to be using as a larder storing the missing townsfolk until it is ready to eat them.

The Doctor uses his sonic screwdriver to release the bodies but as they are about to escape they find a pile of alien skeletons. Outside of the trunk the townsfolk have arrived en mass. Armed with flaming torches they are pursuing the creature. The fleeing creature is savaged by an alligator and left for dead while the townsfolk chase off the alligator instead. The Doctor races to the side of the creature and learns that it is an orphan — its parents having died in a crash some years earlier. Struggling to survive it had sought to protect the townsfolk from the alligators. Weakened but strong, the Doctor returns the creature to its home planet.
