Hello! Welcome to the Cloister Library, one of the most detailed Doctor Who sites around. Our aim is to provide an in-depth guide to every Doctor Who (or related) book published. It's an invaluable aid for fans who just can't place that reference, or a useful tool for Doctor Who researchers or authors interested in the vast tapestry that 30 years of original novels have created.

What sets the Cloister Library apart from other Doctor Who guides out there, whether online or reference guides, is our transparency. We've provided page numbers for every continuity reference, most locations and descriptions of alien monsters, as well as other tidbits along the way. We haven't just summarised the relevant points for you, we've made the process accessible to further fact-checking and corrections, or simply a way to guide you to exactly where that pesky reference is.

We welcome contributions or feedback. We're also only human, so if you spot some mistakes or ommissions, do please let us know. We hope to have the most comprehensive Doctor Who book reference site there is. If you're ambitious enough to attempt a whole book (it's not as hard as it looks!) please contact Robert first, so there isn't a conflict.

Clicking on one of the Doctor's faces on the right will take you straight to that Doctor's section; also, in the commentaries themselves, clicking on the Doctor's face will return you to this page.

Please note that the guides are intended to be detailed and contain significant spoilers. So please be warned if you're clicking on a guide to a book you haven't read.

Currently, there are 338 entries in the Cloister Library, with 22 to go.

Note: Please send any comments or submissions to Robert Smith? using the words "Cloister Review" in the subject of the email.
