Doctor Who and The King's Dragon is the usual good vs evil. It basically tells of an alien artifact infecting a city with gold...but two alien forces are fighting to recover the alien artifact as it has the power to bring people under its spell. Enter the Doctor and his two companions... And really, it's a case of find the artifact, decide who to give the artifact back to and return to the TARDIS. Sound familiar? Generally speaking, Una McCormack wrote an okay story spread across 240 pages which would have been better suited as a short story for Big Finish's Short Trips series - except the series of books has been cancelled...maybe that was why it was made into 240 pages and published by BBC Books??? If you're a Doctor Who fan who travels on the bus or underground then this book is ideal - it is easy to pick up and put down - but if you want a real gritty novel to read snuggled up under the duvet then...er...well, the choice is up to you! A stocking filler maybe...?
