Doctor Who: The Crawling Terror by Mike Tucker

Nerd Alert! I love Doctor Who! 
The Crawling Terror by Mike Tucker is great read even if you're not a Doctor Who fan. The story is that insects all over are becoming more scary than they already are, growing huge and taking over towns and cities. These swarming, mutated (gigantic!) insects are becoming more and more menacing and the only way to save the world from these creepy crawlies is decoding symbols engraved on an ancient stone circle and unraveling a mystery that dates back to World War 2. The Doctor, along with his companion, Clara, as well as the military are working furiously to end the terror around them.  The story is filled with plenty of the usual Doctor Who type mysteries such as evil doctors, science experiments, and the usual "wolf in sheep's clothing".

This version of The Doctor definitely has his own identity and that is written up well in this book. For those who are fans of the series, you may find yourself on the fence about this particular incarnation of The Doctor. As has been mentioned by many other fans, he has more of a human feel to him than of Time Lord. 

That being said, I have quite a few of these Doctor Who novels, most of which are with the David Tennant version of The Doctor,  and I have loved each and every one of them. The books all bring new story lines but keep the same Doctor Who feel. 

I received this book from Blogging for Books for the purpose of review. All thoughts are that of my own and have not been influenced in any manner.
