Code of the Krillitantes Quick Read Book

Quick Read's have now revealed the cover and synopsis for next year's Doctor Who Quick Read novel, Code of the Krillitanes. The book features The Tenth Doctor and as the title suggests, The Krillitantes, who appeared in the Doctor Who series two episode, School Reunion. The cover of the book can be seen above, and the official synopsis for it can be read below:

"I blame those new Brainy Crisps. Since he started eating them, he’s been too clever by half.”

Can eating a bag of crisps really make you more clever? The company that makes the crisps says so, and they seem to be right. But the Doctor is worried. Who would want to make people more brainy? And why?

With just his sonic screwdriver and a supermarket trolley full of crisps, the Doctor sets out to find the truth. The answer is scary – the Krillitanes are back on Earth, and everyone is at risk! Last time they took over a school. This time they have hijacked the internet. Whatever they are up to, it’s big and it’s nasty. Only the Doctor can stop them – if he isn’t already too late...

A short, sharp shot of adventure, featuring the Doctor as played David Tennant in the hit series from BBC Television.


Code of the Krillitanes is written by Justin Richards and follows on from the previous four Doctor Who Quick Reads: I am a Dalek, Made of Steel, Revenge of the Judoon and The Sontaran Games. The book consists of 128 pages and will be released as a paperback across the United Kingdom and Ireland on the fourth of March 2010, being sold for £1.99. Will you be purchasing a copy of this?

It looks like a good cover :)

I'm not too keen on the Quick Reads books though, a bit short.
