Audiobooks
 

This category contains Doctor Who audio readings and audiobooks — which, as the name suggests, are readings of previously-published books. That used to be exclusively the case, but not any more — in recent years there have been increasing numbers of "non-book" readings, which outwardly have all the trappings of an audiobook (a single performer "reading" the story), but weren't actually adapted from books.

(Note: full-cast audio dramas are not listed here — you'll find them in the audio drama category instead)

The very first Doctor Who audiobook was a cassette-only reading of the State of Decay novelisation in 1981, which remained a one-off for several years. Sporadic releases in the 1990s followed, but the real boost came after the launch of the revived Doctor Who series in 2005. Readings of the tie-in new series novels began to be released in 2006 — then, the following year BBC Audio began regularly releasing classic series Target novelisation readings on CD.
