Book Description

3 Mar 2008 Dr Who
Will Thorp reads this suspenseful story about a sentient house, a ravenous beast and a family in danger. Tiermann's World: a planet covered in wintry woods and roamed by sabre-toothed tigers and other savage beasts. The Doctor is here to warn Professor Tiermann, his wife and their son that a terrible danger is on its way. The Tiermanns live in luxury, in a fantastic, futuristic, fully-automated Dreamhome, under an impenetrable force shield. But that won't protect them from the Voracious Craw. A huge and hungry alien creature is heading remorselessly towards their home. When it arrives everything will be devoured. Can they get away in time? With the force shield cracking up, and the Dreamhome itself deciding who should or should not leave, things are looking desperate...This title features the Doctor and Martha as played by David Tennant and Freema Agyeman in the hit series from BBC Television.

2.0 out of 5 stars Feels like incompetently written fanfiction 30 Jun 2009
By Eris
Even though the idea of the voracious craw, an unstoppable eating machine, is a good one and could have made for an interesting story, most of the book feels underdeveloped and repetetive. The members of the "family in distress" come across as cardbord characters and even though one crisis follows another the plot is boring and predictable. I've read most of the New Who - novels but this is the first one I found so disappointing I only skimmed through at the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars Soem good ideas, but... 28 Oct 2007
The basic premise of this story is fascinating, and there are some wonderfully graphic descriptions, but while Barbara, Toaster and Domovoi are genuinely well-written, the other main "guest cast" are more or less cardboard cut-outs, including the boy I think I was supposed to empathise with. What was supposed to be a revelation about the woman, too, was obvious to me from her first appearance.

The Doctor and Martha are OK, but overall, I found Sick Building one of the more forgettable additions to the Doctor Who range

2.0 out of 5 stars A real disappointment 21 Feb 2012
By Book Critic VINE VOICE
Ten's voice and manic, gurning energy is absolutely spot on in this book. I thought I'd get that observation out of the way first because I hate to be negative but it's the only good thing I have to say about Sick Building.

Paul Magrs has long been my favourite writer of Eight-Doctor novels and his name on the cover was what encouraged me to branch out and try a new-Who novel. This is the first time I've read a book based on the new series so I'm not sure whether it's a lapse in Paul Magrs hitherto magnificent form or the range as a whole, but Sick Building - a Ten and Martha novel set on a planet inhabited only by one super-rich family and their robots - is so terribly simplistic and childish in tone it made me cringe from start to finish.

I don't know if there's a conscious decision behind this, to write the range of Doctor Who books as children's lit, or if it's something specific to this title but gosh golly, if it's typical, I doubt I'll be reading any more. As someone who loved the EDA and PDA's, the change of gear is terribly grating.

I do love Paul Magrs writing and was looking forward to a new Who novel from him, but this was a real disappointment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Original and fun. 1 May 2010
This book stands out from the series because of the originality of the monsters. The monster the Doctor was intending to deal with is continent sized, and reminiscent of the sand worms in Dune. The other monsters are the household objects that the mad genius has imbued with intelligence. They are full of personality, well used in the story and the idea of them kept me chuckling to the end.The sun bed, vacuum cleaners and living fireplace were especially notable, and despite a bit of a sudden ending left me pleased that I had read the book.
