Book 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.



Featuring the Tenth Doctor as played by David Tennant in the hit Doctor Who BBC Television series.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Are you local? 2 Mar. 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    As a lover of Doctor Who and a life long resident of Worcester I was looking forward to this, the first DW book I'd ever read, and to start with things looked good. The tenth Doctor is captured here perfectly, his mannerisms, his cheeky asides that go right over everybody's head, his cock sure attitude it's him alright. And his two 1-day only companions are well fleshed out, the battle fatigued local Captain Darke and the hidden agenda off-worlder Emily. After that it's a bit dissappointing there is a surfeit of villians, first the alien businessman/arms dealer Henk, the Krillitane Toeclaw, the Esteemed Father(another krillitane) and the Krillitane Storm itself. There is no central threat, which calls for a lot of running around and capture/re-capture cycles (popular in the seventies). The Doctor even laments that the fact he keeps getting tied up!
    And once I got over the thrill of seeing local place names in the Who-niverse the setting became somewhat superflous, it could of been any medieval cathedral city or rather any pre-gunpowder cathedral city since the medieval aspect was thinly sketched. Nor was there a cleary defined geography, I live here and couldn't figure where some things were happening. One short paragraph describing the lay of the land, the smells, the bustle the people, giving a real sense of place and time. Important things in a time travel story. Instead it read like a 'Build you own adventure story' "The Doctor arrived in [Worcester] and met [Emily] who helped him fight the Krillitane" The chance to create effective and exciting drama in unique colourful and expansive locations is hampered on TV by the cost, here it's been wasted.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Storm in a teacup 27 Nov. 2009
    Format:Hardcover
    Following on from their triumphant appearance in 2006 TV story 'School Reunion', another relatively unknown monster gets fleshed out in the latest original Tenth Doctor story from BBC Books. The Doctor is again companion-less, and this time links up with Emily, a mysterious humanoid from the future who is operating in medieval England. The Time Lord and his temporary companion are quickly caught up in a series of inexplicable murders, and The Doctor soon uncovers duplicity and treachery as the sinister 'Devil's Huntsman' causes superstitious locals to lock themselves away in their homes, and the new Sheriff to impose a strict curfew.

    With several strong characters - notably guard Captain Darke and the enigmatic 'Henk', and a scintillating opening, this novel has all the hallmarks of a terrific read, however I found that after a strong start the story sagged in the middle and eventually became a generic runaround. Although impressive on the small screen, the Krillitane are pretty one-dimensional monsters, and the story just isn't gripping enough to carry them. Overall disappointing, but nevertheless readable.

    3.0 out of 5 stars The Krillitane Storm 22 May 2010
    By Jane Aland VINE VOICE
    Format:Hardcover
    The final 10th Doctor novel finds the TARDIS landing in medieval Worcester, where the populace are living under fear of attack from an airborne terror known as the Devil's Huntsman...

    With their one (and so far only) television appearance being limited to a single episode, the monstrous Krillitane's appeared to be ripe for further exploration, but despite good intentions this novel turns out to be a rather formuliac runaround. Perhaps sensing the creature's limitations Christopher Cooper sidelines them for a good portion of the novel, focusing instead on villainous businessman Henk, who is planning to use the Krillitanes for his own financial gain. The author captures the 10th Doctor's mannerisms well enough, and as is standard for these latter day 10th Doctor novels we get another 'one-off companion' substitute in the shape of bounty hunter Emily. Unfortunately whilst the plot is busy and works functionally well enough, the book seems a little fractured and unfocused at times, with too many enemies (first it's the Krillitanes, then Henk, then another batch of Krillitanes, then the Krillitane Storm itself) and medievil England overrun with so many aliens and spaceships that the historical setting becomes somewhat arbitrary.

    Not a bad novel, 'The Krillitane Storm' contains enough thrills and adventure to keep the pages turning, but alas this is far from being one of the highlights of the range.

    4.0 out of 5 stars When in Worcester 22 July 2012
    By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
    Format:Hardcover
    An original Doctor Who which tells an all new story for the Tenth Doctor. Not presented before in any other format.

    It runs for two hundred and thirty nine pages. Is divided into seventeen chapters plus a prologue.

    It's suitable for readers of all ages.

    It features the Tenth Doctor travelling on his own without any companions. His dialogue is perfectly well written and you can well imagine David Tennant saying it when you read it.

    The story sees the Doctor land the TARDIS in Worcester in the twelfth century. Where the streets are quiet. Because a mythical beast is supposedly killing people.

    After meeting a Krillitane, the Doctor hunts for the truth of the situation.

    But they are not the only offworlders who are in the city...

    Whilst the period detail does rather take a backseat as the story develops, and it does have some familiar plot style and development, this is a well above average entry in the series. And that's because of the way the plot works out. There is more going on here than initially meets the eye, and the various twists and turns do confound your expectations and keep it all moving along very nicely.

    Coupled with two very decent supporting characters and a good action climax for one of them, that makes this is a very good read, and a strong entry in this series.
