Vampire Science is the second novel in the BBC Books series, the Eighth Doctor Adventures, based upon the BBC's long-running science fiction television series, Doctor Who. It was written by Jonathan Blum and Kate Orman.


An ancient Time Lord enemy, 'vampires', have been spotted on earth. Some of these creatures want to co-exist with humanity, but others want to cause destruction.

The character of General Kramer previously appeared in a fan film that starred Jon Blum as The Doctor.
