AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In the days when the Time Lords were young, their war with the Vampires cost trillions of lives on countless worlds. Now the Vampires have been sighted again, in San Francisco.

Some want to coexist with humans, using genetic engineering in a macabre experiment to find a new source of blood. But some would rather go out in a blaze of glory - and UNIT's attempts to contain them could provoke another devastating war.

The Doctor strikes a dangerous bargain, but even he might not be able to keep the city from getting caught in the crossfire. While he finds himself caught in a web of old feuds and high-tech schemes, his new companion Sam finds out just how deadly travelling with the Doctor can be.'

      Published between June 1997 to June 2005, this series was the first to be published by BBC Books after it took over the literary Doctor Who franchise from Virgin Books. Virgin had previously released the Doctor Who: The New Adventures line under its Doctor Who Books imprint.

      The first BBC Book release was Doctor Who: The Novel of the Film, a novelisation of the 1996 telefilm. This is not generally considered to be part of the Eight Doctor series, however. The first of that series, The Eight Doctors, features all eight incarnations of the Doctor.
