The Extortioner was a TV Comic story featuring the Second Doctor, John and Gillian.

Summary Edit

The TARDIS lands on an unnamed planet. The Doctor leaves John and Gillian in the ship and explores a nearby volcano. He discovers it is the base of the Extortioner, who plans to blackmail the inhabited universe with his fleet of rockets unless they pay his ransom demands. The Doctor is captured and imprisoned, but escapes with his pocket laser. He throws the missiles' warheads into the volcano's core, causing an eruption which destroys the Extortioner's base. Enraged, the Extortioner pursues the Doctor in his giant mechanical mole. The Doctor lures him to a crack caused by the volcano's eruption and he falls to his doom. The Doctor returns to the TARDIS.
