    1. And so it ends, as we all knew it must. From 1997 to 2005 the BBC continued the work started in the movie and gave us on a regular basis the adventures of Paul McGann's sharply dressed Doctor. But the times were changing and eventually what was once thought unthinkable happened . . . the BBC decided to bring back the old show of yesteryear, gussied up with new(ish) production values and a bold new Doctor who was dressed like he was ready to roll with the rougher boys. Which meant it was time to [...]


    2. After over 70 plus books, I really was hoping for a better ending to the Eighth Doctor Adventures. It wasn't a bad book, but it just didn't have the scope and drama I had hoped for. Still, there were finally some answers to some very long term questions about The Doctor and Gallifrey, and an ending that while not fully satisfying, fuels the imagination for future adventures for The Doctor and his companions. Just as a suggestion, The Gallifrey Chronicles is not the book to read if you haven't re [...]


    3. One thing going through this list of books for this website has done has made me realise how much I miss the BBC novels of old, the new ones just are not the same. I know the target audience is now slightly different but the sooner this type of Doctor Who book is back on the market the better it is for all fans of Doctor Who fiction.


    4. nhwvejournal/1102824ml[return][return]I thought at first that this was going to be a too-clever-by-half tale of intersecting rival continuities. It's better than that, I'm glad to say. A lot of the plot features another Time Lord exiled to Earth, who has been writing science fiction novels over the last century or so (these are the Gallifrey Chronicles of the title, a beautifully developed concept); he bears a grudge against the Doctor, and triggers an invasion of Earth by loathesome insects to [...]


    5. It’s only fitting that Lance Parkin, the first author to bring the eight Doctor to the printed page be the author who writes the coda to the eighth Doctor’s era. (Well, at least in print)And with the sheer number of dangling plot threads from the BBC’s run of publishing on-going Doctor Who novels, the fact that the story is comprehensible in any way is nothing short of a miracle. Parkin has a lot of weight to life in this novel and he does it fairly well. But while the book is good, it sti [...]


    6. I was looking forward to reading this book so much I held off it for years. So perhaps I built up my own expectations too much. What did I expect? I guess I thought there would be something exciting about Gallifrey inside it- but Doctor Who stories featuring Gallifrey are typically disappointing (with some exceptions) and Gallifrey hardly features anyway.This is a monster story with a tacky companion romance. The monsters are two-dimensional insects with no rhyme or reason, Fitz and Trix are ext [...]


    7. I wanted to like this. I REALLY wanted to like this, especially as Lance Parkin has written some of the best (and most iconic) "Doctor Who" novels. But "The Gallifrey Chronicles" is a victim of too little/too late. I was once an avid follower of the 8th Doctor's adventures, but once the initial amnesia arc was complete, I lost interest. The mystery went on too long, the following arc with multiple universes didn't hold my interest, and the new companions ranged from the extremely ambiguous Anji [...]


    8. This book came with a problem tells the tale of how the Doctor led to the downfall of Gallifreyis would have been fine however the fiftieth anniversary episode placed the genocide of the Time lords on a different Doctor!!However this is Doctor Who some time lines can be written over and consistency between the TV/Book and Audio works can sometimes get stretched. can the Doctor's personal history.What this is though is a good book and a send off for this incarnation of the Doctor,It gives a nod t [...]


    9. An excellent conclusion to the Eighth Doctor's adventures (but wisely, not a "last Eighth Doctor story"). (view spoiler)[Tons of continuity, and we finally have an explanation for the Doctor's amnesia that makes him heroic! Marnal was an interesting character, though it's a bit bizarre that he's both a typical arrogant Time Lord and an interfering maverick at the same time. I thought Fitz being alive at the end was a bit of a cop-out, but I had been wondering how they were going to reconcile suc [...]


    10. A very grand finalé to a series I've enjoyed reading for two years. All the characters are on point and resolution of the First Time War plot arc is very satisfying (even though it doesn't really feel like the end). It speaks a lot to Fitz's character development that I found myself sobbing over a character I once hated. Gonna miss you, bud. I guess I'll never be sure how I feel about Trix. I'll miss the Eighth Doctor most of all. This series made him my favorite Doctor and there will never be [...]


    11. Only four stars based on the genre. Great lit it's not. However, it's a great, fun read for Doctor Who fans in a series that, for the 8th incarnation, often got a bit too heavy and convoluted. Still, nice of Parkin to bring it all together with a finale that is pure Who.


    12. This is probably the second best ending to a doctor who book series; it's not quite on a par with Lungbarrow, but it's still utterly excellent, beautiful, poetic and profane, high and low brow, just lovely. It's a fabulous bookend to the entire EDAs, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Bravo.
