An original adventure tying in to the ninth season of Doctor Who, the spectacular hit series from BBC Television, featuring the new 12th Doctor as played by Peter Capaldi. “I'm an archaeologist, but probably not the one you were expecting.”Christmas 2015, Sydney, New South Wales,Australia.Imagine everyone's surprise when a time portal opens up in Sydney Cove. Imagine their shock as a massive pyramid now sits beside the Harbour Bridge, inconveniently blocking Port Jackson and glowing with energy.

— Gary Russell

Imagine their fear as Cyrrus "the mobster" Globb, Professor Horace Jaanson and an alien assassin called Kik arrive to claim the glowing pyramid. Finally imagine everyone's dismay when they are followed by a bunch of con artists out to spring their greatest grift yet.

— Gary Russell

Review

First off as I wrote at the beginning of this hub "I was sent a free copy of Doctor Who: Big Bang Generation by Gary Russell in exchange only for my honest and unbiased review of Doctor Who: Big Bang Generation by Gary Russell."

As many of you know I am a Doctor Who fan; I tend to prefer Doctors Nine, Ten, and Eleven, but Twelve is quickly growing on me since the Magician's Apprentice episode. Don't worry I won't spoil it for you in case you have not seen it yet. I was excited to read this book since I have been growing the like the new Doctor though I still miss the younger versions of him.

The cast of this Doctor Who Adventure is:

  • Legs-sexy comedian
  • Dog Boy - protection and firepower
  • Shortie- logistics
  • Da Trowel-excavation and history
  • Doc- Ensure the Universe survives and lives on

After reading Doctor Who: Big Bang Generation by Gary Russell I found myself left with a feeling of utter confusion. Doctor Who: Big Bang Generation by Gary Russell did not really make much sense with how the characters were jumping all over time streams. In fact my favorite part of the whole book was learning that Clara created an app for the doctor that allowed him to locate his sonic screwdriver and deactivate it on command as needed. Speaking of Clara I feel that she was the element of order that this book was sorely lacking. Normally the companion provides a steadiness and consistency to the book, but this one lacked that. I just did not feel like Keri lived up to it. I truly feel that this book would have been so much better if Clara had been involved in it.

All in all I wish that I had chosen a different book for review for a Doctor Who book this book fell rather flat. Unless you are ready to keep up with a truly confusing story line that zig-zags, bounces and flips then you will want to give this book a miss.
