April Books 5) Zamper, by Gareth Roberts

Parasites were not allowed the dignity of names, but under the circumstances Hezzka acknowledged that the beast was called Mr Jottipher.
The militant turtle-like Chelonians are a particularly entertaining creation of Gareth Roberts', here attempting to take over the planet Zamper, a building yard for warships with its own intriguing secrets of who is really in charge, and how. The story actually reminded me quite a lot of The Leisure Hive, and that in a very good way, though the settings are quite different. The Doctor and companions Benny, Chris and Roz get a little crowded out of the plot by the bullying Chelonians, but that's all right - the Tardis crew will be back in the next book.
