The Mystery of the Mould is a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2013 featuring the Eleventh Doctor and Clara Oswald.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Answering a distress signal from an abandoned space station the Doctor and Clara encounter hungry Parabees and a mould monster — but who sent the distress signal and why?

Plot[edit | edit source]

Responding to a distress signal, the Eleventh Doctor and Clara arrive on an abandoned space station that appears to be covered in some sort of green mould. The Mould takes on its own life and connecting with itself creates a mould monster. They are led to safety by a party of three aliens. The Doctor presumes it was them that sent the distress signal. But the aliens who identify themselves as Parabees, although trapped for three weeks quite like it where they are — feasting on "the mould, the mildew, the rot, the fungus!" The Doctor realises it was the mould that has somehow become sentient, a living thinking organism and sent out the distress signal. The Doctor declares the now living and thinking mould, under his own protection. The Parabees turn on the Doctor and Clara but are saved when tentacles of the mould overcome and restrain the Parabees until the Doctor is ready to return them home safely leaving the brand-new species of mould in peace aboard the station.
