go back to the old Terrance Dicks ones. The ones featuring the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) were the ones i enjoyed most - a strong horror theme running through them, plenty of run-ins with Daleks and Cybermen and if I remember right, 6 of the books were linked in the quest for 6 cystal segments that made up the Key of TIme *quick google* (The Ribos Operation, The Pirate Planet, The Stones of Blood, The Androids of Tara, The Power of Kroll, The Armageddon Factor). The ones where two or more of the Doctors met up were also good fun.

The Dying Days
(8th Doctor) and The Eyeless (10th Doctor solo) both by Lance Parkin were both decent. Not read it myself, but Human Nature is generally well rated and it's available for free off the official website, along with a few others, including Dying Days:

For some rights reason, The Pirate Planet was never novelised.

BBC books published a series of books before the TV show was relaunched.  I read as many decent ones as bad ones.  Last of the Gaderene by Mark Gatiss, Festival of Death by Jonathan Morris and Grave Matter by Justin Richards are my favourite three from this range.  I think they're out of print, but you can probably pick 'em on Ebay.
