Summary

When the TARDIS vending machine runs out of chocolate, the Doctor takes Rose to Belgium, home of the finest chocolatiers in the galaxy, but it is 1914 and a German platoon, under the brutal command of Captain Rotmund, has been sent in pursuit of the British (making a retreat through the forest of Mormal). The soldiers are lost in the forest, and since a sudden fog came down their compasses have become unreliable. The Doctor and Rose become involved in the conflict and are listening to tales of the Angel of Death visiting the troops to take the dead to heaven, when the Doctor spots a surveillance device in the form of a hovering camera. He identifies it as belonging to the Warfreekz, connoisseurs of carnage who specialise in "conflict management", forever in pursuit of the perfect slaughter, who are watching the situation from half a billion light years away. When the Germans attack the camera, it defends itself and the commotion attracts the attention of British soldiers nearby (who are also lost in the fog). Using the Doctor's sonic screwdriver to illuminate her body, Rose appears to the soldiers as the Angel of Death and starts to quote the Robbie Williams hit song "Angels". Meanwhile, in the distraction, the Doctor addresses the Warfreekz and reminds them that even watching wars is not painless and sends a feedback pulse back to them which hurts their ears. With the Warfreekz having withdrawn, and the two groups of soldiers united, the Doctor and Rose prepare to leave, with the Doctor promising Captain Rotmund that unless two soldiers (Paul and Edich) receive commendations, the Angel of Death will revisit him! As a token of their thanks, Rose is offered some of the soldiers' chocolate ration.

Notes

  • The Eighth Doctor's travelling companion Destrii/Izzy appears in the group frame top left.
  • The DWAM comic strip adventures were very much aimed at a younger audience and the artwork and colours was 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.
