Wetworld is a BBC Books original novel written by Mark Michalowski and based on the long-running science fiction television series Doctor Who.[1] It features the Tenth Doctor and Martha Jones.


When the TARDIS makes a disastrous landing in the swamps of the planet Sunday, the Doctor has no choice but to abandon Martha and try to find help. But the tranquillity of the swamps is deceptive, and even the TARDIS can’t protect Martha forever.

Back of the book[edit]

Tiermann's World: a planet covered in wintry woods and roamed by sabre-toothed tigers and other savage beasts. The Doctor is here to warn Professor Tiermann, his wife and their son that a terrible danger is on its way. The Tiermanns live in luxury, in a fantastic, futuristic, fully automated Dreamhome, under an impenetrable force field. But that won't protect them from the Voracious Craw. A huge and hungry alien creature is heading remorselessly towards their home. When it arrives everything will be devoured. Can they get away in time? With the force shield cracking up, and the Dreamhome itself deciding who should or should not leave, things are looking desperate...


An abridged audiobook was released in March 2008. It is read by Freema Agyeman, who plays Martha Jones.[2][3]
