The Taking of Chelsea 426 (Doctor Who New Series Book 034)
by David Llewellyn


The Chelsea Flower Show – Hardly the most exciting or dangerous event in the calendar, or so the Doctor thinks. But this is Chelsea 426, a city-sized future colony floating on the clouds of Saturn, and the flowers are much more than they seem. As the Doctor investigates, he becomes more and more worried. Why is shopkeeper Mr Pemberton acting so strangely? And what is Professor Wilberforce’s terrible secret? They are close to finding the answers when a familiar foe arrives, and the stakes suddenly get much higher. The Sontarans have plans of their own, and they’re not here to arrange flowers…

This is the 34th book in the New Doctor Who book series that follows the adventures of the 10th Doctor. The book is based in a time period after he had left Donna but before he regenerated to the 11th Doctor. Liked the book, It was a light read (only took about 2 hours to finish). In the book you can see that the Doctor is starting to miss having a companion but is still not ready for a new one. The Sontaran’s are not portrayed as the usual brain dead people for whom the solution for everything is increasing the amount of force applied. This time their Intelligence division is incharge instead of the Battle Fleet so instead of destroying everything immediately they try to gain intelligence and learn more about their enemy’s plans. Final Recommendation: A good read but not something I will be reading over and over again
