'For a few moments this afternoon, it rained on the moon...' An astronaut in full spacesuit appears out of thin air in a busy shopping centre. Maybe it's a publicity stunt. A photo shows a well-dressed woman in a red coat lying dead at the edge of a crater on the dark side of the moon - beside her beloved dog 'Poochie'. Maybe it's a hoax.

But as the Doctor and Amy find out, these are just minor events in a sinister plan to take over every human being on Earth. The plot centres on a secret military base on the moon - that's where Amy and the TARDIS are. The Doctor is back on Earth, and without the TARDIS there's no way he can get to the moon to save Amy and defeat the aliens. Or is there? The Doctor discovers one last great secret that could save humanity: Apollo 23.

This is a thrilling, all new adventure featuring the Doctor and Amy, as played by Matt Smith and Karen Gillan in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.

    " I really enjoyed this book. It was different as the aliens were basically the human's who just happened to be under control of the aliens. The Alien's were unique and I was glad that they didn't show up until the end other wise it probably would've ruined the story. I liked that the Doctor wasn't really sure that his plan would work, the plan he had about combining all of the stored minds in the water system did really seem that it wouldn't work. At least that was voiced otehr wise I would've been a little annoyed. The book fit in the series with Amy and Eleven and shows just how much Amy depends, respects and have faith in the Doctor after such a short 'time' of knowing him. [Even though she's known him since she was seven.:] Unlike the other book that I read with Amy & Eleven this didn't have any refrences to where this would fit into the time line. But this book was really good and had a nice story line that fit perfectly into the book form. You weren't really sure what was going on until later which was interesting because the first part of the book I didn't know how alien's or what the story would continue into. But it was a nice read. "

    " I'm a new Dr Who fan. I totally love the Matt Smith episodes. But there's not enough of them, so I turned to this book and had a great time reading it. It's just like watching the TV show. Excellent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 1/8/2014

    " This was a very good book. I enjoyed the intricate plot that kept you guessing at every moment. I would recommend this book to all adventure loving, science-fiction fans or who fans in general. I don't think that people who apply logic and deeply consider plots would like this book though. You can't apply logic to who. Other than that this book was brilliantly written and in my opinion a great book that keeps you interested at every moment. "

    " Great story, best Doctor Who book I have come across so far, however there were many things wrong with it. Firstly, many of the scenes and much of the dialogue would have been much better suited to a tenth doctor story, as it was far easier to imagine David Tennant speaking the words than Matt Smith. This is simply because the book was written before people really knew Matt's style and exactly how he played the character. Secondly the Americans in the story were far too stereotyped and over-exaggerated. It is still a good book which I would recommend to any Doctor Who fan. "

    " Good plot, great characterizations, excellent book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda [Novel Addiction] | 12/21/2013

    " This was alright. All the supposed twists were actually pretty predictable. Definitely not the best Doctor Who book out there. 3/5 stars because it was entertaining enough, and the author did well with The Doctor's mannerisms. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 11/9/2013

    " One of my favourite of the Doctor Who novels. The title certainly appealed to me and my interests and I wasn't disappointed. A very clever idea that would have made a good episode. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyssa Greatbanks | 10/16/2013

    " One of the best Doctor Who books. Such a great story to this one, it was very gripping trying to figure out what would happen at the end. I couldn't put it down! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 10/6/2013

    " Solid Doctor Who story that is reflective of today's series: fast-paced, albeit somewhat lighter than many of the TV episodes. The Doctor and Amy were well-written and the story overall was entertaining, if not terribly deep. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrew | 9/23/2013

    " It's a fun adventure with the Dictor and Amy, but nothing special beyond that. A somewhat disappointing runaround with generic monsters. Too bad, since it comes from the mind of the usually more reliable Justin Richards. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne Barwell | 9/6/2013

    " I enjoyed this book but it was a very light read. Part of me wonders if the set up was just so that they could use the phrase 'Houston, we have a problem.' But in the saying that, it was a good story, and one I would recommend if you want a fast, fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Orphal | 9/1/2013

    " loads of fun. just like watching an episode. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel Kukwa | 2/3/2013

    " A solid read, but more concerned with keeping a tight plot than letting loose & taking risks. A bit of a clincal read, spiced up by a strong command of the 11th Doctor & Amy. I think of it as a bit of a modern update of the 2nd Doctor story "The Moonbase"...without the pithy Cybermen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ted | 7/9/2012

    " Very enjoyable Doctor Who story. I really like Amy Pond on the TV show, and she's just as good in this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri | 6/22/2012

    " The Dr. and Amy are at a food court when a man in a spacesuit just appears out of nowhere. Turns out the US has a top secret lunar project that is malfunctioning. But when they investigate there is more - much more to the story. Fun romp. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April Parrish | 6/7/2012

    " This was the first Doctor Who book I have read with the 11th Doctor. I have to say that it didn't disappoint. I could hear the characters voices as if I were watching the show. I can't wait to read more, especially since their will be no more Doctor Who until Christmas. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 H3dakota | 4/29/2012

    " It was OK. Some of the ideas were kind of cool. Downside of the audiobook version: so many British narrators just can't do American accents. I truly wish they wouldn't even try, it is very distracting from the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 11/20/2011

    " Good fun, a real romp. A bit longer than the previous Doctor Who books I've read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaime | 11/3/2011

    " This is the first Doctor Who book i've read with the 11th Doctor. It was okay but not great. I think i might get some of the later books featuring 11. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 9/26/2011

    " Another good DW book, especially since this was the first one written about the Eleventh Doctor. Not my favorite, though, so far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sebastian | 8/27/2011

    " Interesting idea with some conceptual weaknesses. And considering the title, it could have done a bit more on that part. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 6/3/2011

    " The doctor does it again. With the help of Amy Pond he stops an alien invation of the planet Earth. The aliens plan to inflitrate the human mind and take over their bodies. All is going well until the Doctor finds out their weakness and exploits it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaime | 5/19/2011

    " This is the first Doctor Who book i've read with the 11th Doctor. It was okay but not great. I think i might get some of the later books featuring 11. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katrina | 3/22/2011

    " I might download unabridged audio book if this gets boring (like I find with quite a few dr. who books)but i will try reading it first to see. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erika | 3/8/2011

    " While not a masterpiece, this book was everything I has hoped for and expected. The book reads very much like an episode. It is all about the action, not so much the characters and a satisfying way to get a Doctor Who fix. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri | 2/23/2011

    " The Dr. and Amy are at a food court when a man in a spacesuit just appears out of nowhere. Turns out the US has a top secret lunar project that is malfunctioning. But when they investigate there is more - much more to the story. Fun romp. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elentarien | 1/3/2011

    " Interesting story. Well done, you could definitely see both characters come to life as they might have on screen. Interesting scenario which takes them out of England (for once) and actually interacting with Americans.

    All in all a fun read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 12/6/2010

    " Brilliant book! Enjoyed it very much! I loved that the Doctors personality had a bit of the 9th, 10th and 11th regenerations in him so you could pretend he was any of them :) I recommend it to all Whovians! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 11/28/2010

    " I could barely finish it. No, it wasn't very good, although I did enjoy the reference to the classic episode "Frontier in Space."
    If you love the Doctor, you might be able to finish it like I did. Barely. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 8/7/2010

    " I enjoyed this book but it was a very light read. Part of me wonders if the set up was just so that they could use the phrase 'Houston, we have a problem.' But in the saying that, it was a good story, and one I would recommend if you want a fast, fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carole | 7/27/2010

    " Sympa, un peu classique, ça reste une lecture distrayante ! En plus, j'ai pu le faire signer au Doctor Who Prom par Ben Foster et un des opérateurs daleks qui parlait franaçais(il y a un beau "Exterminate" dedans, suivi de "Bisoux ! ;-) ) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy | 7/11/2010

    " I took this book to the beach for the weekend and had it finished in a day! It was very good from start to finish. "
