The Eighth Doctor has featured in many novels since his debut in first appearance in Doctor Who in 1996.

Virgin New Adventures Edit

Virgin Books, which began publishing its New Adventures novel series in 1991, kept the license for publishing Doctor Who novels for a year after the Eighth Doctor's debut. Though only The Dying Days featured the Eighth Doctor in any substantial role, he did have brief cameos in some earlier novels, all published after the TV film.
