Travel back to The Doctor's distant past28 January 2012 The comments on this book are extraordinary, particularly the one who says that this book is incredibly rare and only for die-hard Doctor Who fans. Okay, I am a big fan of Doctor Who, particularly the older series (the newer series seem to lack some of the zest that the older series had, and are a little less thrilling) but I would hardly call myself die hard. Anyway, I saw this book back in the time when it was first released, and decided [...]

Astonishing, powerful, wistful, nostalgica novel that manages to be a celebration of Doctor Who's mythic backstory while simultaneously being a piece of remarkable science fiction AND poetic human (nee, Time Lord) drama. Lance Parkin's novel is on a scale that leaves pithy adjectives such as "epic" in the dustis is the heart and soul of Doctor Who's various fandom branches, all tied up together in a gorgeous harmony of old genre favourites, continuity fanwank supreme, and breathtaking characters [...]

nhwvejournal/1087211ml[return][return]This wasn't quite the book I expected. (I thought I had read somewhere that this was the one where various different versions of canonicity collide; obviously not.) This is an alternate timeline where the Doctor never left Gallifrey, and neither did the Master (here renamed the Magistrate); both ascended to high office among the Time Lords. The Doctor is brokering a peace deal between the Sontarans and the Rutans, but meanwhile Omega is trying to break out o [...]

This was my first foray into Doctor Who novels. It was written for the show's 35th anniversary and seems to take place outside the normal continuity of the series (to the extent that Doctor Who has a normal continuity!). The story takes place largely on Gallifrey, the home planet of the Time Lords. The Doctor is living there, integrated (or reintegrated?) into Time Lord society. It's (intentionally, I think) unclear whether we're supposed to think this takes place in the distant past or the far [...]

The Doctor sitting in the Hight Council of Time Lords beside a black bearded "Magistrate" who's said to be his oldest friend (well, well, it does make me think of somebody ^^)Alternative timeline or distant past ? No idea. It's part to the charm of the book.A return to Gallifrey's origins; the expedition who allowed the Gallifreyans to become Time Lords by harnessing a black-hole. All thing alongside with the myths of Rassilon and Omega, the engineers of this progress. An insight of the strength [...]

Despite the praise this book has received over the years, I had some issues with it. Most significantly is the ambiguity regarding the identity of which incarnation of the Doctor the book features. Without a personality or mannerisms particular to a known incarnation of the Doctor, I had difficulty caring about the lead and, by extension, the rest of the characters. The story itself promises a great deal, but ultimately fails to deliver, while the conclusion is a non-event. I'm a big fan of Park [...]

Kind of a bummer. Really was looking forward to this, but it was a bit of a disaster! Characters that change their attributes at a whim, and a hugely in depth Time Lord history, that I just didn’t get. But I got the book for father’s day 2008 so I’ll keep it forever!

This book was very well written, and the story very interesting - but I had several grumbles about canon, character continuity, and various nerdy stuff.I realise that the books are not actually canon, but this was a bit much.

Eighteen years can be a long time. It's the space of time that separates William Hartnell in An Unearthly Child from Tom Baker in Logopolis. It's the space of time that separates Sylvester McCoy in Remembrance Of The Daleks from David Tennant in Doomsday. It's also the period of time, give or take a month or two, from when I'm writing the review of Lance Parkin's The Infinity Doctors. It was half that time ago that separates when I first read it and loved it from the time I read it a second time [...]

I have no idea how to sum up this book. It's wonderful, Parkin outdid himself yet againand wrote interesting characters (I absolutely love Larna), a griping story that uses the mythos of gallifrey really well, and manages to make the planet quite alien. There's just many things to unpack here, and I love how it's ambiguous which doctor we are following (for me, definitely eight at some point).This books is just soooo good!

This one hurt the ol' noggin a bit. It also, up until the last couple of pages, felt very thrown together.You've got 3 major plots going on (or I guess a B plot that's introduced first, and then two contesting major plots that appear later), and there's a lot of hard cuts between them. If you don't keep your head on straight, it's pretty easy to get lost amongst the sea of characters and locations. It's not Game of Thrones hard, but for a Who novel, it's easily one of the harder ones to follow. [...]

I can do no better job than the review done by a certain Dan Kukwa. My only additions would be that this book is not for the occasional fan. If you're an occasional fan who happens to walk into the Infinity Doctors, I have two pieces of advice. 1) *well its less advice and more berating* how were you so lucky to run into a copy of the Infinity Doctors - its rare! 2) You are not ready for this this is a truly mythical and captivating story that ties together many pieces of the Doctor's character [...]

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 [...]

"Hang on, I'm two hundred and twenty-nine pages in, with only another fifty-one to go. It started slow but it's building to a climax." A rebellious but not renegade Doctor sits on the high council of the Time Lords, next to his bearded friend the Magistrate, planning to see if he can get the Sontarans to become chums with the Rutans. Who is the faceless killer who stalks the corridors of Gallifrey? Who is responsible for the breach in space time that spans the Universe? And, more importantly, do [...]

I guess this book helped creat the idea for Doctor Who Unbound audios. The basic premise is that the Doctor stayed on Gallifrey. This allows Parkin to use the basic idea of Logopolis, the universe coming to an early entropic demise, to good effect. One complaint: The Doctor and The Master are in this, as in many recent Who works, established roles in Gallifreyan society. I am not fond at all of this trend. The original idea of the name Doctor was his preservation of anonymity. The Doctor and Mas [...]

While I have been a Doctor Who fan since the 80s and I do love some of the more involved plot lines of the series, this book was a bit dry and difficult to get through in spots. The tecnho-babble was a bit heavy handed and the parts where I felt we could get to know the characters better were a bit thin. Not bad overall, but be prepared to push through the slow parts. It could really be about 50 pages shorter and still get the same story across.

Interesting novel with a version of The Doctor that seems to be outside of the usual framework. It adds more to the mystery and mythology of Gallifrey. I enjoyed the book, although it's really one for the serious fans I'd think. If you are just looking for a book featuring one of the "known" Doctors, then perhaps this one isn't for you.

The Doctor lives on Gallifrey and is trying to forge a peace between Rutans and the Sontarans. Meanwhile, there is a big space time anomaly that could destroy the universe. This is a good story, complicated by the fact that you are constantly trying to work out which Doctor this is. I think he talks like the 7th even though he does not look like him. A very good read.

Interesting character study of the Doctor in one of his incarnations (unspecified). This involves extended meanderings of the consequences of time travel, what, exactly the Time Lords are supposed to be doing in the universe, and relationships. While being well-written, it was a bit much for me to wrap my poor head around.

Now I don't consider this book to be part of the official Doctor Who universe, but it's a fun what-if story involving a different version of the Doctor, and an enemy that had been seen on the TV series twice during the classic arch.

Without explaining which Doctor is the protagonist, this novel felt so true to the character it made me smile and worry about the man behind this great story.
