Annuals

For Americans and others not familiar with the British concept of an "annual", they are yearly-published (hence the name) A4-sized slim hardback books, anywhere between 50-100 pages in length, and aimed squarely at the children's Christmas market. Every year in Britain, dozens of annuals are published, with the subject matter including popular movies, TV shows, pop stars, comicbooks, etc. A typical Doctor Who annual contains a mix of illustrated short stories, comic strips, puzzles and factual articles. Usually the authors and artists are not credited, hence they're not listed here.

Five publishers have been involved with producing Doctor Who annuals over the years:

A warning if you're searching for a particular old annual on Amazon or eBay — the year of publication is always printed inside each annual, but the title of the annual traditionally refers to the following year. For example, the annual published in September 1975 is called the "1976 annual". This can lead to confusion for some of the annuals which don't include a year in the title. For example, the 1982 annual simply says Doctor Who Annual on the cover, so the publication date of 1981 printed inside means some online merchants confuse it for the 1981 annual and list it accordingly on their site. Be sure you know what you're buying!

A final note: There have been a number of "annual-esque" books which are similar in form and content to the annuals, but technically aren't annuals because they aren't marketed as such (e.g. they don't have a year number or don't say "annual" or "yearbook" on the cover). These books have been listed in the Miscellaneous Books section instead and are as follows: The Dalek Book, The Dalek World, The Dalek Outer Space Book, Invasion From Space, The Amazing World of Doctor Who, Adventures in Time and Space and Journey Through Time. In the latter three cases, the books mostly comprise of stories reprinted from annuals.
