The Krillitane Storm (Doctor Who: New Series Book 036)
by Christopher Cooper

Description:

When the TARDIS materialises in medieval Worcester, the Doctor finds the city seemingly deserted. He soon discovers its population are living in a state of terror, afraid to leave their homes after dark, for fear of meeting their doom at the hands of the legendary Devil’s Huntsman.

For months, people have been disappearing, and the Sheriff has imposed a strict curfew across the city, his militia maintaining control over the superstitious populace with a firm hand, closing the city to outsiders. Is it fear of attack from beyond the city walls that drives him or the threat closer to home? Or does the Sheriff have something to hide?

After a terrifying encounter with a deadly Krillitane, the Doctor realises the city has good reason to be scared.

Rating:

Review:The Krillitane Storm is the last book featuring the 10th Doctor from BBC Books. He is still traveling alone and has landed in medieval Worcester where he finds the local population terrified of the Devil’s Huntsman. Soon after he lands he comes face to face with a Krillitane who has killed a human and the story continues from there.

The plot was quite fast paced with no major plot holes or forced contrivances used to further the storyline.

Since this is about 800 years before his previous encounter with the Krillitane they haven’t fully integrated their latest change into their system yet. This the the point in time where they decide to focus their genetic scavenging to perfect their bodies and become gods.

It had a few plot twists along the way which I didn’t quite expect and they didn’t spoil the book either.

Final Recommendation: A good read
