When Virgin was publishing Doctor Who novels they banned writers from writing from the Doctor's perspective in order to keep mystery about him. Not sure if that mandate carried over to the BBC books, but a lot of authors followed it mandate or no.
That may have been their intention. In practice, it mostly just made him come across as inaccessible and distant. I find I'm liking the seventh Doctor less and less thanks to the Virgin books.
