This review is from: Doctor Who: Plague of the Cybermen (Kindle Edition)
Justin is very good at capturing the relevant Doctor's character in all the books he has written for the series, and this is no different. Matt Smith's Doctor leaps off the page in every scene he's in, with only the rare occasion where it seems reminiscent of the Tom Baker from the Douglas Adams years.
The story is a simple affair which sees the Doctor curing an apparent plague and fighting off a group of crashed Cybermen. Some scenes of the frozen Cybermen were very much in the vein of Tomb of the Cybermen, and worked well in the context of this story. The atmosphere is created well, and the cast of characters are fine if a little dull. I liked Olga, though. I could see her as a possible tv companion with some fleshing out.
If you like reading the Doctor's adventures, then this shouldn't disappoint you.
