Doctor Who: Plague of the Cybermen BBC Books

new-bbc-book2Doctor Who: Plague of the Cybermen
Written by Justin Richards

A thrilling, all-new adventure featuring the Doctor as played by Matt Smith
in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.

‘They like the Shadows. You know them as Plague Warriors…’

When the Doctor arrives in the 19th-century village of Klimtenburg, he discovers the residents suffering from some kind of plague – a ‘wasting disease’.

The victims face a horrible death – but what’s worse, the dead seem to be leaving their graves. The Plague Warriors have returned…

The Doctor is confident he knows what’s really happening; he understands where the dead go, and he’s sure the Plague Warriors are just a myth. But as some of the Doctor’s oldest and most terrible enemies start to awaken he realises that maybe – just maybe – he’s misjudged the situation.

    • DoctorWhoFan101

      February 17th, 2013 - 8:56am

      Same. Partly because the Cyberman isn’t the new type. I like the ones from closing time. I like the new ones as well but not as much as the old ones. By old ones, I mean DT and MS ones. (David Tennant and Matt Smith).

    new seris cybermen are soo bad they look like robots not cybermen


      February 15th, 2013 - 8:54pm

      The cybus cybermen were basically robots with a human brain plonked inside,whereas the classic cybermen were true cyborgs.

      Everyone says that but, to tell the truth, I adore ALL cybermen. But that’s just my opinion.
