This review is from: Doctor Who: The Infinity Doctors (Mass Market Paperback)
`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.
