After the relaunch of the new series in 2005, Panini Books (publisher of Doctor Who Magazine) produced a well-received 2006 Annual — however, the following year, the licence to produce Doctor Who annuals was handed back to the BBC (who henceforth produced their own range of annuals).
In response, for each of the following 4 years, Panini published a yearly annual-esque series of books titled Doctor Who Storybooks. As the title suggests, the main contents were stories: specifically, each volume usually contained 7 or 8 lavishly-illustrated short stories, with one or two comic strips for good measure. Unlike the Official BBC Annuals which were targetted specifically at children, the Panini Annuals were pitched at an older age demographic, so were capable of being enjoyed by adult fans too. And unlike the previous World annuals or Marvel yearbooks, the contents of these Storybooks were fiction only — no factual articles, crosswords or puzzles, etc.
