Plague of the Cybermen,
This review is from: Plague of the Cybermen (Doctor Who) (Dr Who) (Hardcover)
"I'm the Doctor. But you can all call me "the Doctor" ...
A new Doctor Who adventure is always approached with some excitement, and a little trepidation. This one, which features the Cybermen (best villains ever) promises much.
In a quiet village under the shadow of the castle, people are dying - of a plague, or so they think. And others, who have been taken by the Plague Warriors, are found with limbs and organs torn from them. When the mysterious Doctor arrives in their midst, they are surprised but soon accept his offer of help. But what the Doctor finds does not make him happy - for there is evidence of others being there who have anything but the best of intentions for the population.
This is a good Doctor Who story; fairly standard fare, no surprises, and that's not a bad thing - a good Cybermen story with plenty of action, lots of Doctor witticisms and a story that would translate well onto the small screen - that's what the diehard Doctor Who fans like me always enjoy. Great stuff.

Not a bad story this as I own the Audiobook read superbly & Cybermen voices by Nick Briggs.
Although I struggle to warm to The 11th Doctor as I find his behaviour immature for a 1000 yr old Timelord, This is a above average story.
great written review.

Thanks; yes, I don't particularly care for the Matt Smith Doctor, but a Cyberman story is not a bad thing at any time.
