About this site

The TARDIS Library is the Internet's most comprehensive listing of all Doctor Who-related books, videos and audios ever released. The list of videos & audios includes all major formats such as DVDs, VHS videos, CDs and cassettes — also "niche" formats such as Blu-ray, Laserdisc, UMD and MP3-CD. (The only exception is vinyl singles and LPs which are currently in the process of being added, so the list is not complete yet)

This site lists a total of 4,167 Doctor Who items: 1,898 books, 765 videos / DVDs, and 1,504 audios.

If you count each edition separately (hardback vs. paperback, UK vs. US DVD release, etc), that number grows to 7,029 editions: 3,198 books, 2,134 videos / DVDs, and 1,697 audios.

Site History:

This site was originally created in 1995 as The Doctor Who Books Page by Richard Atkinson. Daniel O'Malley (that's me) took it over in 1996 and has run it ever since, changing the name to The TARDIS Library in 1998, at the same time creating The TARDIS Video Library as a separate site (including details of audio dramas). The two sites were merged in 2001.
