    1. I've always been a fan of the Doctor Who books because I have always felt they added more to the series and that they were a good filler between series'. This was no different! This book is a twist on the TV version of the Krillitanes, and there are only minor differences throughout - so if you have seen the TV show, the chances are you will already know what is going to happen. Despite how I found it excessively predictable, I did enjoy it and I found myself finishing it in about 30 minutes. Th [...]

    2. It maybe only 100 pages long but this was an enjoyable well written 10th Doctor story featuring none of his normal companions the Doctor seems to come across with a bit more edge than normal and I like it. The aliens are interesting and the humans come across well too which is a rare treat in a Doctor Who book. I liked the twist at the end and the whole book flowed nicely. I didn't give it a five star rating because their were a few moments that didn't quite sit right for me and although I liked [...]

    3. It was so close to be one of my favorit Doctor Who books, but then came a dark twist that I didn't like. I know this is meant to take place in his dark period post-Rose, but it was still a bit too dark to make to book really good.

    4. It had to be something sinister, or there wouldn't be a story. Such a shame - I really fancy crisps that make you brainier!

    5. Reads just like the tenth Doctor should. Great quick fun read. I believe anyone who enjoys the tenth Doctor will enjoy this book.

    6. “Doctor Who: Code of the Krillitanes” by Justin RichardsTenth Doctor exposes a dodgy manufacturing company that is actually a tool for global domination.“I blame those new Brainy Crisps. Since he started eating them, he's been too clever by half.”“You've undervalued Henry. Just like you've undervalued all the humans on this planet. You're going to pay for that. Unless you leave now.” (p96)

    7. A great, quick 100 page read involving the 10th version of the Doctor along with a likeable new 'companion'. I enjoyed this new installment that showcased the Krillitanes, again up to something sinister. I've been enjoying these quick Doctor Who books to read inbetween larger and more complex novels as a sort of palate cleanser.

    8. I enjoyed most if the book besides the ending. I did not like the ending but that is just me and without spoilers I can't really say why. although I did feel like in this one you did again get a taste of what the doctor is really like.

    9. Quick read indeedAnother book-episode of Doctor Who down. This one, however, had a certain ineffable something that made it flow better and really captured the characters better somehow. Great way to spend an hour with the Doctor.

    10. "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 t [...]

    11. A very dull entry in the Doctor Who range, largely rehashing the ideas of School Reunion in a more Sarah Jane Adventures style, without even the silly humour and good character work.

    13. Great book if you want an easy book that's nice to quickly read through. Tensions was high enough to keep me drawn in and the ending was exciting enough for me to want to know how it ended.

    14. Spannend, kurzweilig, wäre eine gute Folge gewesen. Nicht perfekt, aber doch gut.

    15. Na sua eterna e inefável busca de solução para a aleatoridade genética que correntemente os transformou numa espécie de morcegos saurópodes, os Krillitanes contaminam batatas-fritas com óleo de fritura onde o principal ingrediente são os seus chips de memória. O disparo no quociente de inteligência resultante é medido num website que através de jogos complexos coloca os utilizadores a resolver problemas científicos. Controlando a humanidade pelos cérebros e estômagos, os Krillitan [...]

    16. I didn't like this as much as The Krillitane Storm. If you have seen School Reunion, it's just a kind of sequel, the story really has a lot in common with it. The Krillitanes' are using their oil to enhance crisps (chips to us North Americans) and give a big boost to human intelligence; with the power of the internet and the enhanced humans they want to conquer which is their nature, I wont say how they intend to reach their end because that would be a spoiler and I hate those It's a good short [...]

    17. The Doctor is back and so are the Krillitanes. Though sadly, Anthony Stewart Head (Giles from Buffy and the headmaster from the episode 'School Reunion') isn't.This is a really fun and really short read. I would recommend this book to any younger Whovians--even as young as Elementary school--just based on the length of the story and it's straight forward nature. (I think at one point Krillitanes are described simply as 'bad'.)That aside the 10th Doctor is in fine form. In the other Doctor Who bo [...]

    18. Chances are, if you're reading a book that's part of the Quick Reads not-for-people-who-read series, you probably aren't on . But let's review this f***er. This is a book I read on a single two-hour flight. It's got Doctor Who in it. I found it for free at a Book Crossing drop spot while traveling, so it didn't cost me anything. The positives end there. It reads like an episode of Doctor Who that was so bad they couldn't in good conscience spend money on filming it. Seriously, "Dinosaurs on a Sp [...]

    19. Doctor Who short stories have been a common element of the Quick Read books each year and for the average teenage sci-fi fan they must have boosted the joy of reading.As an adult and fan of this Time Lord I found the book very readable and liked it in part. The trouble is that the story can write itself due to the confines of the series. Here, the Doctor is re-united with the Krillitanes who plan to destroy the human race. As usual it is the people of this planet aided and encourage by our favou [...]

    20. This book is a Quick Read and because I am a fast reader, it was an even Quicker Read!A packet of crisps and a brainy child leads the Doctor to infiltrate the company who make the crisps and other such products. There, he discovers the Krillitanes are back, planning to take over the world via the internet.Because this book is set after Journey's End, the Doctor doesn't have a companion as such, though he does hook up a lowly worker for the company to try and stop the aliens from breeding a new b [...]

    21. The Doctor is back on earth again, but finds that people are just too smart. It all seems to be stemming from a new brand of crisps (chips) that are making people smarter as they eat and go online to test their new knowledge. BUT, the Doctor thinks there is something more devious going on are begins to investigateI liked this quick read book, but the Doctor is never as good without a companion. The story was fairly fast paced, but not as twisty and turny as some of the other Who novels. Still, i [...]

    22. A typically mediocre tale from Justin Richards, "Code of the Krillitanes" takes the villain and basic structure of the TV-episode "School Reunion" and reshapes it into an IT-corporate setting. As is often the case with this author, he writes simple, straightforward stories with a language to match that. Nothing sticks out badly, but there's not a lot of merit either. Pleasant, but oh so devoid of the element of surprise.

    23. nwhytevejournal/1962354For what this is - a short New Who book aimed at people who don't read that much - it is rather good, a story of the Tenth Doctor on his own, reprising the Krillitane plot from School Reunion with some extra wrinkles and a one-off young male sidekick who is into computers but lacks social skills. The prolific Justin Richards on a good day (it can't have taken terribly long to write).

    24. Review written: sometime before April 20, 2015Code of the Krillitanes by Justin RichardsWhy I read it: Doctor Who rides again.Rating: 4/5What I thought: It's a lot of fun to simply watch the Doctor trying to live a normal life. Sadly Anthony Head couldn't make it, and for good reason, but the Krillitanes that do show up get a fair bit of good material, and fun things happen around them too. Also I like Henry. It's all good really.

    25. Like it says on the tin, the Quick Reads are the perfect Doctor Who stories for reluctant readers or folks with less than an hour to squeeze in a Doctor Who story. A bit more twisty than the previous one (The Sontaran Games), this felt almost like a novelization of an episode from the TV series. And sometimes, that's just what I'm looking for from a Doctor Who book. Lots of fun.

    26. 100-page Quick Reads novella featuring the Tenth Doctor and the return of the Krillitanes, previously featured in the second-series episode "School Reunion". Short as it is, this is Whovian author Justin Richards at his best, with length enough for quite a good, readable and complete novella, but brief enough that the story's pace doesn't have time to slow down too badly, which seems to be Richards' main failing in longer works, usually due to a tendency to verbosity. 4 stars.

    27. Ah! The Doctor's back at it again. This was a bit weird in the sense that there were times when I felt the Doctor was out of character but the quirkyness was there and what I loved was how they kept with the doctor wanting to give the bad guys another chance and feeling sorry that he couldn't save them.

    28. Again, this book is only for Doctor Who fans. Set after Donna leaves and the Doctor is left alone, this book brings back the Krillitanes and their desire to use enhanced human intelligence to further their species. A short read that is very light and quite entertaining. This book is a great read if you are travelling and need something to kill a few hours.

    29. This book was wonderful. The author completely understood the Doctor (as portrayed by David Tenant). I also enjoyed a story with the Krillitane because they don't have the long history of some of the other Who menaces (the Daleks and Cybermen coming to the forefront of my mind). So if you are a fan of the tenth Doctor then I would highly recommend this book.

    30. A short read that was fun but nothing new. We already know all about the Kirllitanes and it was predictable to the point where I'd already guessed what Henry would do. Likeable characters and quite funny in stages but nothing amazing about it!
