Rezension zu "Doctor Who: The Silurian Gift (Quick Reads 2013)" von Mike Tucker
Antarctica. Businessman Rick Pelham has invited some journalists to talk about his discovery of a new form of energy. However, his little press conference is soon disturbed by the news of an accident at the refinery. One of the journalists who is no other than Doctor Who offers to provide medical help. He just knew something did not add up when he heard about the discovery and he soon discovers that the humans at the refinery are indeed in great danger...
This is a suspenseful Doctor Who adventure involving the Silurians and further ancient creatures. However, it is indeed written to be a quick read and where the films convey moods, atmosphere and emotions by pictures, this little book fails in my view to recreate all this by descriptions.
Nevertheless, as a Doctor Who fan I enjoyed reading it, especially because it features the characteristic charm, cheek and playfulness of the 11th Doctor solving difficult situations without violence.
