The Guardian of Murcher was a Doctor Who Adventures comic story featuring the Tenth Doctor and Heather McCrimmon.

Summary[edit | edit source]

In Edinburgh, in the present day, Heather is planning to go and see her friends, Rob and Suze, whilst the Doctor is planning to explore the local woods. Heather thinks that will be a bit dull, but the Doctor explains even an ant is amazing. Just then the Doctor and Heather find themselves in a strange alien environment. Returning to the TARDIS, the Doctor informs Heather that they are on Earth but someone is projecting a 3D hologram over the entire planet. Following a signal, they land on the Murcher Moon, where a huge tower is being built by small humanoids in construction outfits, the Murchers. They inform the Doctor they were attempting to hide their own planet, Murcher Emporium, from the Seebees, who would want the Skongolian glitter vines. Just then the Seebees arrive and begin their attack. The Doctor then gets Heather to use his sonic screwdriver on his hand, which projects a gigantic image of the ant he is holding into the atmosphere, scaring the Seebees away. They are so impressed they say the ant is the guardian of Murcher, but the Doctor and Heather leave with the insect.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The DWA comic strip adventures were very much aimed at a younger audience and the artwork and colours were bold and bright, reflecting the tone of the magazine.
  • Self contained, one part stories were the norm in the early issues, later being expanded to two-parters.
