The Shadow in the Glass was the forty-first novel in the BBC Past Doctor Adventures series. It was written by Justin Richards and Stephen Cole, released 2 April 2001 and featured the Sixth Doctor and Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart.

This novel is rare in that it only features the Doctor and the Brigadier with no other companions alongside the Doctor, although journalist Claire Aldwych serves in a companion-esque role.
