Doctor Who: The Krillitane Storm...Review
When the TARDIS materializes 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. And, after a terrifying encounter with a deadly Krillitane, the Doctor realizes the city has good reason to be scared!
A good follow-up to the series two episode School Reunion, which introduced us to the Krillitanes. This one is set in medieval England, rather than current day. With Krillitanes, bounty hunters, medieval soldiers and amoral fortune hunters, the Doctor finds himself on another grand adventure. All we're missing is K-9 and Sarah Jane! As it is his way, the Doctor always attempts to reason with the enemy and here, he manages to work with most of the Krillitanes at first to find a solution to the issues at hand.
I liked this one, although it was much more serious than funny. It's also got an incredibly high body count.
Thanks to my local bookstore for having a copy I could buy for the boy. You can purchase your own copy here.
