The Sparkling Planet was a Doctor Who Adventures comic story featuring the Tenth Doctor, Heather McCrimmon and Wolfgang Ryter.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The TARDIS crew are in the hold of a spaceship. The Doctor does not like the sound of the engines and on the bridge finds the freighter's owner, Mr McKendrick. He reveals that he is trying to escape the atmosphere of Adamas, a planet the Doctor says is supposed to be off limits.

Back in the hold, Heather is surprised by the variety of goods. Wolfgang hears something. Following the sound, they find a diamond monster trapped in a stasis-field. The creature escapes and chases them.

  • The DWA comic strip adventures were aimed at a younger audience and the artwork and colours were bold and bright, reflecting the tone of the magazine.
