Product Description

Product Description

"Sing about the past again, and sing that same old song. Tell me what you know, so I can tell you that you're wrong."



Gallifrey. The Doctor's home planet. For twenty thousand centuries the Gallifreyans have been the most powerful race in the cosmos. They have circumnavigated infinity and eternity, harnessed science and conquered death. They are the Lords of Time, and have used their powers carefully.



But now a new force has been unleashed, one that is literally capable of anything. It is enough to give even the Time Lords nightmares. More than that: it is enough to destroy them.



It is one of their own. Waiting for them at the end of the universe.



Featuring the Eighth Doctor as played by Paul McGann, this adventure was published to mark the thirty-fifth anniversary of Doctor Who.

5.0 out of 5 stars A unique view at a phenomenon 26 Jan 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Having written the first cross-over New Adventure (Cold Fusion) Lance has written the most unique Doctor Who book ever. This isn't an eighth Doctor novel, or a first, or an anything-th, this is a story of what might have been. While still being "Who"-ish, it manages to conjour up a whole new world for the Doctor. It's not explained why he is where he is, or when it is, and there are no references to all the nice little things from his past, such as companions or old enemies. This is a fascinating look at where things might be if a different direction had been taken during the 80s, or if it had not been cancelled, or if the Movie had led to a series. Don't expect this book to fit neatly into any chronology so far written, even Lance's own impressive "A History of the Universe", it's to be taken as a celebration of everything The Doctor has been, is, and may be in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative, bold - what's it about? 9 Jun 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is one of the most entertaining Doctor Who books I have ever read, despite the fact that I'm not really sure what it's all about. It's best read if you just accept what has been written without trying to fit it into established continuity

As an avid reader of the Doctor Who books, I found this somewhat confusing as to exactly which time frame I was in (this might be me missing something rather than lacking in the book!). I found little bits of all the Doctors there (in varying portions). Overall I liked it, but felt it generated more questions than it gave answers to. It adds to the Doctor's mystery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Disassociated Doctor 15 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not a book for the casual reader, this was published to celebrate the thirty-fifth anniversary of the show, at a time when it was off the air. Fans have tried desperately to squeeze this into continuity, but it's perhaps best thought of as an alternate 'what if?' story. The Doctor's incarnation is deliberately undefined, and to be honest is a poor match for any of the eight candidates that existed at the time it was written, yet he remains the essence of the Doctor, the character distilled, free of the quirks imposed by various actors. Despite being loaded with nods and nudges acknowledging the long history of the series, this makes the book a credible standalone novel, a mystery set on a distant world in chaos. It's a very strong novel, in that regard.

4.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who? 10 July 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
`The Infinity Doctors' is a peculiar read. The novel is deliberately ambiguous as to which incarnation of the Doctor features. However, this is beside the point. The novel isn't supposed to fit into any sort of continuity - it is written in the spirit of continuity.

Throughout the novel, Lance Parkin reinterprets and re-envisions concepts and characters from the show's history, presenting a complex and captivating read from the start. The novel is pastiche, yet it is brimming with originality and subtlety. It ostensibly alludes to `the Cartmel Masterplan' with "the little man" in the prologue, yet constantly defies attempts to categorise its narrative within preceding continuity.

Full of memorable characters, fascinating concepts, and stunning imagery, `The Infinity Doctors' comes as a highly recommended read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mysterious 14 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is not a run of the mill Doctor Who book-let's get that straight. If you are going to buy only one DW book then this is it.The Doctor's character is superbly depicted because there are no confines of a particular Doctor. This is well worth the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor, Heal Thyself 26 Jun 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
A superb tour de force, this is the only Dr Who novel that I've ever felt compelled to read through from start to finish in one sitting and its best feature is that it pays only subtle and tangential homage to the tangled and increasingly tedious continuity of the Dr Who tv series and films. This book demonstrates that you can wipe the slate nearly clean and still create a fascinating mystique within the pages of a single volume, something the scriptwriters of the tv series could have done with learning long before the series' demise. This should....MUST....be the Shape of Things to Come. The Doctor is dead, long live the Doctor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Infinity or Beyond - Who is the Doctor ? 1 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This story is set in the Doctor's personal future.. or so it seems. A carefully crafted tale, where the characters are woven and explored among events that may be beyond even the control of the chronomastering Time Lords. To describe the content in any more detail would spoil the story; I could not put this book down, in spite of a small textface, the settings and detail are lucid and enticing - enjoy!
