This review is from: Doctor Who: Sick Building (Hardcover)
A seemingly unstoppable eating machine called (appropriately enough) the Voracious Craw is the ever-present threat in this 16th novel in BBC Book's New Series range, but the real danger comes in the form of the Artificial Intelligence controlling the dream home of would-be evacuee Professor Tiermann and his family, which is understandably peeved when it finds out that the Tiermann's are planning to leave it to it's fate. As with much of Magrs previous Doctor Who novels and audios, 'Sick Building' is quite light, campy and offbeat, and with a robot sunbed and vending machine being major suppoting characters this feels not unlike one of the early Doctor Who Weekly comicstrips.
With time the novels 'murderous house vs humans' plot does get a little repetetive, but this is a light and breezy fun read, and the scenario is bizarre enough to make thisworthwhile. 'Sick Building' may not be an all-time Dotor Who classic, but it is different in a good way.
3.5 out of 5
