A unique view at a phenomenon,

This review is from: Doctor Who: The Infinity Doctors (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.
