Synopsis of The Infinity Race (Doctor Who)

Welcome to the Selonart Trans-Global Regatta - The ultimate sporting event in the universe!

The Doctor is in trouble. He has his own race to win. Stuck in a parallel dimension, pursuing the mysterious Sabbath, he must unravel a complex plot in which he himself may be a pawn.

Following the only lead, the TARDIS arrives on Selonart - a planet famed for the unique, friction-nullifying light water that covers its surface. A water that propels vast, technological yachts across its waves at inconceivable speeds. All in all, an indulgent, boastful demonstration of power by Earth's ruthless multi-stellar corporations.

Is Sabbath's goal to win the race? Who is Bloom, the enigmatic Selonart native?

As the danger escalates, the Doctor realises that he is being manoeuvred into engineering his own downfall. Is it already too late for him?

Reviews of The Infinity Race (Doctor Who)


...the exciting and intriguing plot runs out of steam before the end. -- Richard McGinlay, Sci-fi Online

There's nothing wrong with it, but it won't blow your socks off either. -- Finn Clark, Outpost Gallifrey

Messingham can take a bow, he has done the EDA line justice and continues a fine run of magical Books -- Joe Ford, Outpost Gallifrey

Things do mercifully improve by the second half, with a looming timeberg (don't ask) adding a bit of drama to the proceedings, but the characters have been so uninvolving that by this point I was just waiting for the novel to end. -- Lawrence Conquest, Outpost Gallifrey
