The Well-Mannered War is a Virgin Missing Adventures original novel written by Gareth Roberts based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It features the Fourth Doctor, Romana and K-9. This was the final book in the Missing Adventures Range.

This novel is one of a number of Virgin Doctor Who novels which sell for far in excess of their cover price, especially on online auction sites such as eBay. This is believed to be due to high demand for the books after Virgin lost their licence to publish original Doctor Who fiction. Lungbarrow and The Dying Days are similar in this respect, as they were the two final Virgin New Adventures to be published.


On the planet Barclow, the Doctor and his companions become embroiled in the political wrangle between humans and Chelonians.
