Review: Doctor Who and the Plague of the Cybermen

Doctor Who: Plague of the Cybermen

Doctor Who: Plague of the Cybermen

By Justin Richards

Blurb: When the Doctor arrives in the 19th-century village of Klimtenburg, he discovers the residents suffering from some kind of plague: a 'wasting disease'. The victims face a horrible death — but what's worse, the dead seem to be leaving their graves. The Plague Warriors have returned. The Doctor is confident he knows what's really happening; he understands where the dead go, and he's sure the Plague Warriors are just a myth. But as some of the Doctor's oldest and most terrible enemies start to awaken he realises that maybe — just maybe — he's misjudged the situation.

My Rating: 3 stars
 
This was a good book. It started out as a great book, but after page 70 lost a bit of luster.

This was my first experience with a Doctor Who book, and I was not disappointed whatsoever. It wasn't as good as the tv shows, but it was still a great read for any fan of Doctor Who. The story was interesting and not hard to follow, even for someone who only knows basic facts about the Doctor. (You do have to know BASIC facts though; otherwise you'll be shaking your head and asking yourself, "What's a sonic screwdriver?")

The one thing that I did not like was that some parts moved rather slowly. The beginning was next to perfect, but the middle could have sped up a bit. Other than that? No complaints.

Yes, I liked it. It was a satisfying story that I do not regret reading. I just wish it could have moved a bit faster.

I recieved this book via Goodreads Firstreads. This in no way affects my review.
