Doctor Who Ace Adventures (Dragonfire/Happiness Patrol)
7 June 2012
Ace, a teenage waitress with a love for explosives, joins the Seventh Doctor aboard the TARDIS where she’s soon battling a biomechanoid and liberating a world where just feeling sad can get you shot! In Dragonfire The Doctor and Mel unexpectedly encounter an old ‘friend’ at the Iceworld Space Trading Colony on Svartos. The penniless and desperate Sabalom Glitz has only one option to leave Svartos – find the fabled ‘Dragonfire’ treasure concealed somewhere in the depths of the planet. Joined by Ace, the group venture off to uncover lost riches, but all does not go according to plan...
In The Happiness Patrol on the planet Terra Alpha, bright fluorescent lights and garish candy-striped colours abound. There’s no sadness on Terra Alpha. Anyone feeling remotely glum disappears. Quickly. Having heard disturbing rumours, the Doctor and Ace arrive to topple the entire regime overnight. But they haven’t reckoned upon the varied punitive measures enforced by colony leader Helen A.
