LoveReading View on Doctor Who: The Maze of Doom

Sparkling Doctor Who adventure, inspired by Greek myth

May 2020 Book of the Month

David Solomons is the perfect author to write new Doctor Who books – he’s a sci-fi/comics fanatic, brilliantly funny and a dab hand at creating adventure stories too (all of which you’ll know if you’ve read his My Brother is a Superhero books). This new story sees the Doctor and her companions Yaz, Graham and Ryan come face to face with the Minotaur – yes, the monster from the labyrinth but also in fact a deadly bit of alien software.  The adventure takes us to all sorts of settings and via a range of different transport – there’s a great scene on a speeding London bus – and while there’s lots to make readers laugh throughout, it’s properly thrilling too. A very satisfying Time Lord adventure and thoroughly recommended.

Doctor Who: The Maze of Doom Synopsis

An ancient artifact buried deep within the TARDIS leads the Doctor back to London, where a deadly predator prowls the tunnels beneath the city. As the Time Lord and her friends investigate, they uncover a mystery that will take them from a secret mountain base to the depths of the ocean - and if they cannot solve it, one of them will perish. In order to save her friend, the Doctor must solve the riddle of ... the Maze of Doom!

Doctor Who: The Maze of Doom Press Reviews

David Solomons's zany, inimitable wit makes for a series of capers that are thrilling and satisfying. - The Guardian on The Secret in Vault 13
