Summary[edit | edit source]
In this special one-shot story, a strange force flings the TARDIS and the Eleventh Doctor into our own universe! Once here, the Doctor encounters a 10-year-old girl who happens to be a huge fan of the Doctor Who TV show. The Doctor grapples with being a fictional character and a monster lurking at the girl's school on the way to coming face-to-face with the actor who portrays him, Matt Smith!

References[edit | edit source]
- The Doctor is shown looking at DVD boxes for The Twin Dilemma and the Complete Series 7. He references the title of The Android Invasion.
- The death of Elisabeth Sladen is mentioned, though the Doctor notes that, in his universe, Sarah Jane Smith is still alive and well.
- There is a flashback of Ally and two other girls reading Doctor Who The Official Annual 2007.
- At the Doctor Who convention, there are fans dressed as the Fourth Doctor, the Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond, the TARDIS, two Krotons, a Zygon, the Experimental Prototype Robot K1, a Weeping Angel, a Slitheen, a Sea Devil, a Snowman, a Robot Yeti, a Sandminer robot, and a Smiler.
- The Doctor and Ally pass a street sign for "Cribbins St.".
- The Doctor tells Matt Smith that he thinks Peter Capaldi would be a good choice to play him in the future.
- The Doctor has apparently met Capaldi before, having saved him from a Mandrel. He has also met Peter Davison, having saved him once from a Krynoid.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The basic plot of this story is identical to the 1999 Doctor Who Magazine comic story TV Action! in which the Eighth Doctor found himself in the real world where his adventures are chronicled in a TV series starring Tom Baker.
- This is the only IDW comic story to make an allusion to the then-upcoming Twelfth Doctor, who would not make his American comic book debut until the Titan Comics run.
- Despite this story being set in a meta-fiction universe, the Doctor mentions having met Peter Capaldi and Peter Davison previously, seemingly within his own universe. While this is in itself not obviously contradictory with any other source, this story posits that the Doctor was surprised by the knowledge of a television series about himself, explicitly contradicting numerous stories that depict the Doctor himself being involved with the Doctor Who franchise that exists within the Doctor's universe.
Continuity[edit | edit source]
- The Doctor once commissioned Andy Warhol to paint a portrait of all his incarnations. (PROSE: The War of Art)
- The Doctor recognises the Cyberman from the Battle of Canary Wharf while Ally simultaneously recognises it. (TV: Doomsday)
- The Doctor previously slipped into another parallel world where his life was a TV show. (COMIC: TV Action!)
- Sarah Jane Smith is said to be alive by 2013. One source indicates that she would continue to live until some point after 2016. (WC: Farewell, Sarah Jane)
