Biographies

Over the years, various Doctor Who luminaries (mostly actors) have been the subject of biographies or autobiographies — especially since the launch of the new series in 2005. These are all listed here.

Many of these memoirs are also available in audio form, listed elsewhere on the site: William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Anneke Wills, Deborah Watling, Barry Letts, Elisabeth Sladen, John Leeson, Matthew Waterhouse, John Nathan-Turner, Nicholas Courtney, Anthony Ainley, Terry Nation and John Barrowman. (Of these audios, only John Nathan-Turner's is not a reading of a previously-published book)
