Audio dramas
 

This category contains Doctor Who audio dramas, most of which feature performances by multiple cast members and are usually written specially for the audio medium. (As distinct from audio readings, which mostly involve narration by a single performer and are usually readings of previously-published books.)

The very first Doctor Who audio drama was The Pescatons, released on LP and cassette in 1976. This remained a one-off for nearly a decade, until the BBC radio dramas Slipback in 1985 and The Paradise of Death and The Ghosts of N-Space in the early 1990s. From that point onwards, audio dramas started becoming more common (no doubt greatly driven by the lack of new Who on television in the 90s). The awarding of a Doctor Who audio licence to British company Big Finish in 1999 was a turning point — their prolific output includes literally hundreds of dramas and has continued for over two decades to the present day.
