From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

"The Enemy Within" was an alternate title for three different Doctor Who stories, one of them never produced.

  • One of the working titles for "The Invisible Enemy" was "The Enemy Within," and it was referred as such on the Doctor Who sound effects LP released by the BBC in 1977.
  • The working title for an unproduced storyline by Christopher Priest commissioned by John Nathan-Turner and script editor which would have appeared in Season 19. The storyline would have concerned the true source of the power of the TARDIS, an octopus-like creature which subsisted on fear.
  • "The Enemy Within" was also proposed as a title by producer Philip Segal for the 1996 television movie at a Doctor Who fan convention. Given the glib nature in which the title was thrown out, most fans do not use it and simply refer to that adventure as "The TV Movie."

Introduction (blurb)

A transporter malfunction divides Captain Kirk into two people—one gentle, one mean and fierce.


While the Enterprise crew along with Captain Kirk are surveying the planet Alfa 177, geological technician Fisher slips down a rock, cutting his hand. Also, his uniform is smeared with a yellowish magnetic ore. He beams back to the Enterprise for treatment. During the transport cycle, Scotty detects a malfunction in the transporter. Fisher is eventually beamed aboard and reports to Sickbay, but the transporter appears to still be working correctly. Then, Captain Kirk beams up from the planet. He apparently materializes normally. When the transporter room is empty, another person materializes -another Kirk!. He has been split into two beings. The first Kirk to materialize blended all of Kirk's positive qualities -compassion, love, tenderness. The second Kirk blended all of Kirk's negative qualities -hosility, lust, violence.

Before the transporter malfunction is discovered, the evil Kirk roams the ship, demands Saurian brandy from McCoy, and attempts to rape Yeoman Rand. The evil Kirk is eventaully captured, but during the process he damages the transporter.

Eventually, Kirk acknowledges that his negative qualities are part of him and make him a successful Captain. But as he weakens, and begins to lose the ability to make decisions, he realizes that he needs his negative qualities to function as Captain -neither part can survive without the other.

Meanwhile, Sulu and the rest of the landing party are struggling to surive on the planet, as the temperatures continue to drop.

Finally, Scotty repaires all the damages to the transporter and Kirk's two halves are re-integrated. Feeling confident again as Captain, he gives the orders to beam up the landing party, saving them from freezing.

What have you done with the Real Sideswipe?

Brawn and Starscream both fall foul of their friends.

Generation One (Marvel UK) > Issue # 13-17
Previous Issue Next Issue


Marvel UK issues #13-17

Writer: Simon Furman
Art: John Ridgway (13), Collins (14-17)
Lettering: Richard Starkings
Colours: Gina Hart
Editor: Sheila Cranna


After challenging Megatron’s authority and being savagely reprimanded, Starscream plots Megatron’s downfall. He plans to attack humans indiscriminately until the Autobots come to their defence. This will force the other Decepticons to come to his aid and together they will destroy the Autobots proving that Starscream’s methods are superior to Megatron’s. Unfortunately Ravage overhears Starscream’s plotting and rushes to tell Megatron but he is spotted and Starscream attacks him and leaves him for dead.

At the same time in the Ark the Autobots are moving a heavy piece of machinery when it slips and a short circuit causes Brawn to be electrocuted, knocking him unconscious. After his recovers he begins to act strangely before eventually violently attacking Sideswipe and then abandoning the Ark.

"Ravage's ALIVE!"

Some time later as Starscream attacks the US Air Force Base: Oregon Four-Alpha the other Decepticons discover the badly damaged Ravage who reveals Starscream’s treachery. Enraged the Decepticons race off and capture Starscream during his attack. Starscream demands his right to trial by combat.

Brawn meanwhile has gone on a rampage in a small town, believing their cars to be enslaved robots. The Autobots are forced to subdue him. Megatron, unwilling to let Starscream off so easily, plans to take advantage of the situation and suggests to Optimus Prime that they allow Starscream and Brawn to fight each other. Desperate to regain his honour, the now repaired Brawn agrees.

The two battle, unaware that Megatron has stationed Ravage nearby with orders to blast Starscream if he wins the battle. The battle goes against Brawn and it appears that he has been destroyed. Following his orders Ravage blows Starscream out of the sky, gaining his revenge on him. He then lets the other Decepticons believe that it was the Autobots who attacked him, motivating them to get behind Megatron and attack them.

Unknown to the Decepticons, Brawn was not destroyed, instead Mirage projected a hologram showing his death, while the real Brawn was taken to safety.

Back at the Decepticon Fortress, Megatron is preparing to launch an all out attack on the Autobots.


  • Red Alert is shown to be among the Autobots but is never seen again until he appears in further Marvel UK stories alongside Rodimus Prime and the other post-Movie characters, beginning with the Time Wars story arc.


Items of note

  • This story leads directly into Raiders of the Last Ark.
  • Megatron refers to the Decepticon's encounter with Spider-Man, being rattled by humanity being potentially more dangerous than first thought.
  • This was the first Transformers to be written by Simon Furman. He has gone on record to say that he does not think much of this early work and does not wish to see it reprinted which may explain the story’s absence from the Titan Books reprints.
  • Like Man of Iron! and Raiders of the Last Ark, it is unclear where this story fits in the Marvel UK continuity. It was originally printed between The Last Stand and The New Order when the Autobots and Decepticons were deactivated after Shockwave’s arrival. It is generally assumed to take place somewhere in US Issue 3 or 4 as the Decepticons' encounter with Spider-Man is mentioned.


Yes it has been reprinted in the past.
  • This story was reprinted in the Transformers Special 1986 (Collected Comics #4). The story was now printed in full colour and was given a new cover.
  • The story was reprinted again in full colour in issues #308-309 & #313-317 of the regular comic. The reprint was interrupted when the plan to give the comic a permanent extra four pages was dropped and there was no room to carry both the reprint and the back-up strip Machine Man in the same issues.
