Re: OT: TrekBBS, tell me about Doctor Who novels.

In regards to the "adult" novels written by big-name authors, as enjoyable as they are, I find most of the time they feel more like original works of those authors featuring Doctor Who characters more than they do Doctor Who stories.

Although, I'm at the moment halfway through Harvest of Time by Alastair Reynolds and that does for the most part feel like a Doctor Who story from the Pertwee era. With some allowances made to accommodate the fact a novel can do things the BBC couldn't on a 1970s TV budget.
