This book is about the Doctors past not his future. It never ever mentions this though and i'm sorry if I spoil the book for everyone else! It is fantastic book though a little difficult to get into unless you have a degree in Time Lord history. Give it a chance though 'cos it's worth it.I loved it!

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

Just not right, not right at all. Quite unlike anything televised or filmed and entirely lacking in the spirit of Who in any of its tones whether Pertwee, Baker or McCoy. The Doctor a dull bureaucrat? On Gallifrey for many many years sitting in his study? And then a tired retread of exactly, exactly the same elements as in other Gallifrey stories. Perverse and quite awful, actually, though the author is a lucid, intelligent and knowledgeable writer. I was left completely nonplussed and 100% convinced this was an alternative universe as hinted. But why write about a dull non travelling Doctor?

Uses continuity, yet doesn't use continuity, ends up a mess. Some bits will only be of interest to Who fans - the origin of the Sontarans and the retinal scanner trick were very good, but much of the rest will annoy many people - the doctor and Omega relationship was just a rehash of the three doctors and arc, but the lack of any actual reference to those stories was very noticeable. In the end I didn't care about the Doctor or any of the other characters

The ambiguous Doctor made it rather awkward and things fell apart from about the middle of the book. Very average with some promising bits but soulless.

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.

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!

Simply a great book. It's not perfect, but The Infinity Doctors actually tries to do something different, and for that reason deserves praise and attention. By being so abstract it avoids all the dreaded cliches of the BBC range - there are no whimpering, sex-starved companions, no country mansions, and no murderous victorians. It's a vast, universe-spanning tale that is convincing in it's gentle pace, thoughtful detail and obvious intelligence.

As an avid Doctor Who fan, I am obsessed with anything to do with the Timelords and Gallifrey and this books is perfect for those with a keen interest to learn more about the Doctor's ancient home world. The story line is gripping and full of suspense, there's even a few tear jerking moments! A triumph by Lance Parkin!

Despite being a nicely detailed read, it left me with a few questions, not least, which Doctor are we talking about here? Its possibly a future incarnation, but where in his timeline? To read the physical description you could almost think it's the ninth despite bing written about ten years before season 27(series one) aired! All in all, a good read, but a bit confusing and messy!
