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, cassettes and vinyl LPs/singles — also "niche" formats such as Blu-ray, Laserdisc, UMD and MP3-CD.

This site lists a total of 5,102 Doctor Who items: 2,327 books, 829 videos / DVDs, and 1,946 audios.

If you count each edition separately (hardback vs. paperback, UK vs. US DVD release, etc), that number grows to 8,763 editions: 3,885 books, 2,646 videos / DVDs, and 2,232 audios.

Site history

This site was originally created in 1995 as The Doctor Who Books Page by Richard Atkinson. Dan 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.
