Doctor Who: Trading Futures

'Welcome to the future.'





The early decades of the twenty-first century. All the wars have been won. There are no rogue states. The secret services of the world keep the planet electronically monitored, safe from all threat. There is no one left for United States and the Eurozone to fight. Except each other.





A mysterious time traveller offers a better future - he has a time machine, and with it, humanity could reach the next stage of evolution, they could share its secrets and become the new Lords of Time...





...either that, or someone could keep the technology for themselves and use it to fight the ultimate war.





A Classic Doctor Who Adventure featuring the Eighth Doctor as played by Paul McGann.

    Doctor Who: Trading Futures Reviews

  • Ken

    Even though Paul McGann only had the one TV adventure, he’s incarnation of The Doctor was able to live on in various media (comic strips and Big Finish audio plays). But it was these BBC books that ...

  • James Barnard

    Light-hearted, rollicking and fast-moving, this certainly doesn’t rank alongside Lance Parkin’s best work. However, if your work includes truly exceptional Doctor Who stories like ‘The Dying Day...

  • Anne-Laure Tuduri

    A good and fun book, that is really short, and honestly, just has too many characters and opposing factions for it's own good. It's definitely not a bad book, but it also isn't one of Parkin's best, a...

  • Kerry

    This was an easy read, but just felt average. It's a runaround with a few too many factions (showing the status of the book series at the time, I think). It was fun seeing Fitz being taken for the Doc...

  • Richard Harrison

    Pretty fun James Bond-esque caper for the Doctor. Not really sure what the point was but had enough fun reading it that I didn't care at all...

  • Daniel Kukwa

    I was close to awarding this action-packed & witty adventure tale four stars, but two things held me back. The first is that the story is from a time when the 8th Doctor novels were going down a path ...

  • Richard Wright

    Published in the period when there was no Doctor Who on the tellybox, and featuring the Eighth Doctor as played by Paul McGann, this near-future mash-up of Bond-style shenanigans and Who is... well, f...

  • Em Parrott

    Is this meant to be Doctor Who or James Bond with aliens? The characters were somewhat disappointingly reduced to fit the continuous action sequences. Fitz's adventure was hilarious though, and I thin...

  • James Bowman

    Another fine and highly entertaining Doctor Who novel by Lance Parkin, featuring the Eighth Doctor, Fitz, and Anji. Trading Futures mixes spy-fi and sci-fi in a not-entirely-implausible near-future se...
