Doctor Who Big Bang Generation by Gary Russell

More fun, mystery, and yes....The Doctor! A few things I don't get tired of, and The Doctor is one of them. This book mainly features the 12th Doctor, and some different companions. Benny Summerfield and her crew, Legs, Dog Boy, Da Trowel (I like that name) are working with The Doctor to stop a bang that is so big that nothing will be left. Possibly, less than nothing, since this explosion would make "The Big Bang" look small and fizzy. These giant pyramids are a serious issue. Can they fix this in time? 

This was a fast read, but a fun one. It could have been a bit stronger, but I still really liked it. My copy of this book came from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review and nothing more. 


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. 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.

This gang consists of Legs (the sexy comedian), Dog Boy (providing protection and firepower), Shortie (handling logistics), Da Trowel (in charge of excavation and history) and their leader, Doc (busy making sure the universe isn’t destroyed in an explosion that makes the Big Bang look like a damp squib).

And when someone accidentally reawakens The Ancients of the Universe - which, Doc reckons, wasn’t the wisest or best-judged of actions – things get a whole lot more complicated…
