Publisher's Summary

A thrilling novelisation of a classic TV adventure for the Fourth Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith. 

In the snowy wastes of blizzard-swept Antarctica, a strange pod-like object is unearthed, buried deep in the ice. Curiosity turns to alarm as the pod begins to grow - then horror when suddenly it cracks open and a snaking green tendril shoots out, mercilessly seeking the nearest live victim. 

In London, botanical experts are bewildered, and the Doctor is called in to fight this unknown horror. But will he be in time to save Earth from the rapidly spreading tentacles of the Krynoid, a giant man-eating monster from an alien world?

This is how all Doctor Who should be

In a perfect world, Tom Baker (or Jon Culshaw, who does a nigh-perfect copy of Tom Baker’s lofty tones) would narrate every single adventure the Fourth Doctor ever took. We don’t get that with this book, but what we do get is a classic fourth doctor adventure; the kind of thing I grew up with in the 1970s, and a million miles away from all these hideous namby pamby ‘relationships’ tales we get with the new Doctors. Sarah Jane was the Doctor’s assistant, and nothing more, and that was that. You get a bloody big monster, UNIT soldiers firing lasers and stuff and a megalomaniac plant-loving bad guy. It really is James Bond meets The Thing meets Invasion of the Body Snatchers. When this came out in the mid 70s I was convinced weeping willow trees were really Krynoid plant aliens, and I’ve been afraid of them ever since.

Poor narration

I think this maybe a good story but turned off after 20 minutes as found the narrator very hard to listen too. Real shame.

Classic Doctor Who story

Classic Target Adventure 6 episode story compressed into a 100 odd page book, It actually works very well. Sound effects are a nice touch. It took me a couple of chapters to get used to the narration, but in the end it was Ok.

DOOM!

Seeds of Doom was fun and scary, which should be called “exciting”. The most scary bit was when the Doctor and then Sarah were trapped on the crusher.

The most exciting bit was when Sarah Jane was trapped in the room with Chase, who wanted to see what happened when the alien pod touched humans and the Doctor jumped through the roof.
