Review: Dr Who The Crawling Terror By: Mike Tucker

Keep the Dr Fix Going and The Creepy Crawlies Away

Review: Dr Who The Crawling Terror  By: Mike Tucker                4.5/5

When the TARDIS brings Clara and The Doctor to Wiltshire nothing at first seems out of the ordinary, that is until 1. the strange readings on the ley lines and 2. the giant web with a human body in it. Soon it becomes clear exactly why they are there, giant beetles, mosquitoes, spiders, and ants - all that are acting with some form of military tactics and taking over the town and the town people, turning them zombie like and manipulated.
There is a history to this quiet little town and the Doctor has been here before. A message was received from space and Great Britain and the Nazis were in a race to achieve it's capabilites, not knowing exactly what it was opening. A teleport device to allow the dangerous race of Wyrresters (scorpions) through. Only a few survived.
Unfortunately, one survivor has found another way to make it possible to bring the Wyrresters to Earth, and now only one man can stop him - The Doctor.

I hate creepy crawlies. I have a horrid fear of the weird facts that I eat spiders in my sleep throughout my lifetime. But all these fears did not dissuade me from picking up this book and go through an amazing adventure with The Doctor. It was fast paced, had my heart beating and racing, also held elements that had me wondering about truth in legends - ie Die Glocke, Brad Meltzer Decoded style - which is wonderful. It is time to get a Who fix before the Christmas special, pick up a book, you won't be let down.

I received this book from Blogging for Books.
