Doctor Who Audio Dramas — Listening Order

What order should I listen to the audio dramas?

Firstly: you don’t have to listen to everything. But if you want to, you’re in luck! This guide contains an ordering for listening to everything. But, what is the order?

Well, we could try to put everything into in-universe chronological order, but that doesn’t really work when you’ve got time travel involved, and would be a terrible listening experience because the stories aren’t released in order – stories from the Monthly Adventures might feature the Sixth Doctor one month, then the Fifth Doctor the next.

How about date of release? Well, that’s relatively simple, but it means that you’re constantly switching between different series – Bernice Summerfield one day, Companion Chronicles the next, Eighth Doctor Adventures the day after that. To fix this, we’re going to bundle each series of adventures together into a “segment”, and then order the segments by day of release.

The ordering in this guide is based on half years. For each half year:

Later in the guide, this pattern is shrunk to be based on quarter years instead of half years, but it’s otherwise the same. (The only exception to the pattern is right at the beginning, where the audio releases are too far apart to do things this way.)

If you’re on the version of the guide with my recommendations, then let me clarify a few things:

Important Note

The Big Finish audio dramas are often darker than the TV show, and deal with more adult themes. I’ll put a special note on the stories that are especially dark.

How to save money

If you’re planning on listening to most of the audio dramas, there’s a few techniques you can use to save money long term.

  1. For the Monthly Adventures, subscribe. You can subscribe to either 6 or 12 Monthly Adventures instead of buying them individually, which saves you 30%. Unlike a magazine subscription, you don’t have to subscribe to what’s coming out next – you can get a retrospective subscription.
  2. Buy bundles, not individual releases. If you were to buy the Eighth Doctor Adventures Series 1 individually, it would cost you £72 (£9 per episode). But if you get the bundle for the whole series, it costs £64 (£8 per episode). The amount of discount you get depends on the series, but it’s always better to get a bundle.
  3. Keep an eye out for sales. Big Finish has sales fairly regularly. You can look out for sales on special releases (which don’t come in bundles) or sales on entire bundles.

To get a subscription or bundle, go to the page for one of the episodes of the series you want to get. Then, underneath the price buttons, there will be a “Bundles” option, which you can select. (The monthly adventures will also have a “Subscription” option next to the “Bundles” option. For the Monthly Adventures, a subscription is better value.)

The List

If there are any problems with this list, or you have any questions about the audio dramas, please let me know.

New Ranges in 1976–1998

Segment 1:
BBC radio dramas

The BBC has produced surprisingly few audio dramas related to Doctor Who – only five of them were made in the 20th century.

The first, Doctor Who and the Pescatons, existed primarily to try and make some money off the hugely popular Tom Baker. It’s the only audio drama in this list which I give a “Don’t listen” rating to, mostly because it often fails to even be grammatical, let alone a good story. The second, Exploration Earth, is an educational story for BBC Schools. The third, Slipback, was made during the hiatus between Season 22 and Season 23.

In the mid-90s, the BBC made The Paradise of Death and The Ghosts of N-Space, featuring Jon Pertwee reprising his role as the Third Doctor.

If you’re just getting started with audio dramas, probably don’t start here. Start with the Big Finish Monthly Adventures. (Mostly because these are much harder to get).

Where to get them

The BBC has not made it particularly easy to get any of these, so I wouldn’t blame you for skipping this segment.

Doctor Who and the Pescatons is hard to find, but that’s ok because it’s not very good.

Each of the other dramas in this list was released on CD in the early 2000s, so you might be able to track one of those down. Exploration Earth and Slipback were given away for free with the The Daily Telegraph in 2010.

There’s a fan-animated version of Exploration Earth here.

Slipback, Paradise of Death, and The Ghosts of N-Space are available on audible.

Segment 2:
BBV: Adventures in a Pocket Universe
Spin-off (1999)

Bill & Ben Video (BBV) was a company founded to create Doctor Who content for fans during the 16 years that Doctor Who was off the air. Unfortunately, they did not have the rights to Doctor Who itself. They started out creating a series called The Time Travelers, featuring Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred as “the Professor” and “Ace”. Alas, since these characters are technically not Doctor Who characters, these dramas aren’t included in this guide.

However, certain characters and creatures featured in Doctor Who actually don’t belong to the BBC, but to the writer who introduced them. For many of their audio dramas, BBV focused on making spin-off stories about the characters they could get the license to use. These Spin-offs are featured in this guide.

Adventures in a Pocket Universe is a two-part sequel to the TV episode Warrior’s Gate, wherein Romana (here referred to as “The Mistress”) and K9 stayed behind in E-space.

Where to get them

Due to the no-longer-existing nature of BBV, listening to a BBV audio drama requires either finding someone with a disc, or finding copies being shared around online.

The SearchK9, “The Mistress”Maybe

New Ranges in 1999–2000:

Segment 3:
Monthly Adventures (A)
(1999–Sept 2000)

The Monthly Adventures is a series of standalone Doctor Who stories. Each story consists of four half-hour parts, and features one of the classic doctors. In general, you can choose any story and just listen to it – only a few of them are designed to lead into each other.

The Monthly Adventures form the backbone of this guide. Typically, each segment will only have 6 months worth of audio adventures. This segment is longer than usual, because Big Finish had only just begun, so there weren’t many audio dramas being made yet.

Note: The letter (A) in the title of this segment isn’t an official thing, it’s a little indicator I’ve made so you can more easily keep track of where you are up to.

The Marian Conspiracy introduces a new-to-audio companion, Evelyn.

Where to get them

The early Main Range titles are available for purchase from the Big Finish site for a small amount individually, or you can get an Early Years subscription. The Big Finish subscription system allows you to get 12 Main Range releases, starting from a release of your choosing. The first 100 releases are available as part of an Early Years Discount, which is less expensive than the later releases.

Alternatively, the first 50 of the Main Range releases are available on Spotify for free, or are available as part of a Google Play Music subscription.

Segment 4:
Bernice Summerfield: Series 1

Bernice Summerfield is a professor of archaeology from the 27th century. She travelled with the Seventh Doctor in the Virgin New Adventures series of novels, and then went on to have her own series of novels.

When Big Finish were just getting started, they needed something to convince the BBC that they could do Doctor Who audio dramas. And so they chose to adapt six of the Virgin novels to audio. And here they are!

The first 11 seasons of Bernice Summerfield are only available on CD, which means they’re more expensive than your average audio drama. So if you’re unsure about whether Benny is for you, you could try out these (cheaper) options first:

Other starting points

Bernice Summerfield: The Story So Far (2018)
A two-volume series that dips into every era of Benny’s life so far.
The New Adventures of Bernice Summerfield (2014–)
The latest era of Benny’s adventures, with the Seventh Doctor in the first two volumes, and an Alternate Universe Doctor in the last three volumes.
Bernice Summerfield: Epoch (2011–2013)
A set of volumes, starting with Epoch. This is the first era of Benny’s life that you can get as a download (instead of only on CD).

Or you, could just start here, right at the beginning!

All the stories in this segment are adaptions of previously published novels, except for the Buried Treasures (Making Myths and Closure) which were the first stories to be written specifically for audio.

Where to get them

Series 1 is only available on CD. You can order it as a bundle from the Big Finish website.

Buried Treasures (Making Myths and Closure) are harder to get. Making Myths was released for free at some point, but that release has now disappeared. Closure is available as a bonus on the Bernice Summerfield series 4 story Death and the Daleks.

General warning for this segment: sexual references.

Segment 5:
BBV: Sontarans, Rani, I Scream
Spin-off (1999-2000)

Here are the BBV dramas for 2000.

Where to get them

Due to the no-longer-existing nature of BBV, listening to a BBV audio drama requires either finding someone with a disc, or finding copies being shared around online.

First is a story involving icecream and a terrible conspiracy. It’s narrated and performed by Lisa Bowerman, who also plays Bernice Summerfield.

I ScreamYes
content warning: sexual references

Next, is a series of audio dramas about Sontarans.

Silent WarriorSontaransYes
Old SoldiersSontaransDefinitely
Conduct UnbecomingSontaransYes

Finally, The Rani Reaps the Whirlwind, a standalone story featuring The Rani and the Tetraps.

Segment 6:
Monthly Adventures (B)
(Oct–Dec 2000)

The final three Monthly Adventures for 2000 features a couple of “side-steps” – The Shadow of the Scourge steps sideways into the Virgin New Adventures’ canon; and The Holy Terror steps sideways into the comic books.

Where to get them

The early Main Range titles are available for purchase from the Big Finish site for a small amount individually, or you can get an Early Years subscription. The Big Finish subscription system allows you to get 12 Main Range releases, starting from a release of your choosing. The first 100 releases are available as part of an Early Years Discount, which is less expensive than the later releases.

These three audio dramas were followed up by a home video release, When Being You Just Isn’t Enough, which was released in 2008.

(The MaximumSpidercide guide put The Killing Stone here as well, but I can barely find any information about it, let alone find the audio drama itself.)

Segment 9:
Misc: Last of the Titans

Welcome to the first Misc segment! This is for all stories that don’t fit in anywhere else – special anniversary releases, bonus releases for subscribers to the Monthly Adventures, self-contained stories that aren’t part of anything else, and so on.

The Last of the Titans is a Big Finish special release, originally released on a free CD with Doctor Who Magazine #300.

Where to get them

The Last of the Titans can be downloaded for free from the Big Finish website.

The Last of the Titans7thYes
Segment 10:

Segment 11:
Bernice Summerfield: Series 2
Spin-off (2001)

Bernice Summerfield is back! Beginning with this series, Big Finish started creating its own original stories about her, and also published novels and short stories that tie in to the series.

In series 2, the novels were intrinsically linked into the overall storyline of the series, so much so that many listeners who had skipped the books were surprised to learn that Benny was pregnant in The Skymines of Karthos. If you want the full context of the series, reading the novels (or listening to the recently released audiobook versions of them) is a good idea, but if you don’t want to read them, then here’s what you need to know:

Spoilers for the novels

The Braxiatel Collection is a private collection of many artifacts from history, run by Irving Braxiatel (a Time Lord). Home to Professor Bernice Summerfield after her home planet Dellah was destroyed (off-screen between series 1 and series 2). Her ex-husband Jason is presumed to be dead.

During the events of The Squire’s Crystal, Benny is possessed and has sex with Adrian Wall, a Killoran (big dog-person) construction worker. The characters are still reacting to this situation in The Stone’s Lament.

Benny does not find out that she’s pregnant until The Infernal Nexus. Also in the Infernal Nexus: Jason is brought back.

When The Skymines of Karthos starts, Benny is 5 months pregnant.

In The Glass Prison, Benny gives birth to a son, and names him Peter.

Luckily, Big Finish decided to stop making the novels so essential to the storyline in the subsequent series, due to complaints from listeners.

Where to get them

The series 2 audio dramas are only available on CD. You can order it as a bundle from the Big Finish website.

The prose is in a more interesting position: over the course of 2019 and 2020, each of the novels was re-released as an audiobook read by Lisa Bowerman. Here’s a table that shows their availability according by format:

Release Paperback eBook Audiobook
The Dead Men Diaries
The Doomsday Manuscript
The Gods of the Underworld
The Squire’s Crystal October 2019
The Infernal Nexus January 2020
The Glass Prison March 2020

At the moment, the novel The Infernal Nexus and the short story anthology The Dead Men Diaries are the only prose releases from this series that are completely unavailable.

Segment 12:
Dalek Empire I
Spin-off (2001)

The Dalek Empire series asks the question “What if the Daleks invaded, and the Doctor wasn’t there to stop them?”.

The Dalek Empire stories were set up in a thread through 4 Monthly Adventures (The Genocide Machine, The Apocalypse Element, The Mutant Phase, and The Time of the Daleks), but the series itself can be listened to without that prior context.

Where to get them

Dalek Empire I is available for streaming on Google Play and Spotify. It is also available for download on the Big Finish website.

Warning: These stories feature a lot of death. Also, since they form a continuous story (unlike most other releases, which are standalone) you need to listen to them in order.

The “Featuring” section of this table has been removed, to avoid spoilers.

Invasion of the DaleksDefinitely
The Human FactorYes
“Death to the Daleks!”Yes

At the start of this segment is the special release The Ratings War, which features the villain Beep the Meep (from the Doctor Who Magazine comics).

The Ratings War6thBeep the MeepMaybe

A “Short Trip” is a half-hour enhanced audiobook – there’s one narrator (like an audiobook), but it also features sound effects and a soundtrack. Originally, they were released as bonuses for people who subscribed to the Monthly Adventures. These subscriber bonuses were later re-released as “Short Trip: Rarities” in 2016–2018. The Switching is the first of these.

The Switching3rd Doctor, The MasterYes

Next, the Excelis Saga, a miniseries centred around a mysterious relic, and set in the city of Excelis. Each of the episodes in the saga is set hundreds of years after the previous, and features a different Doctor. The episodes should be listened to in order. The epilogue of this story, featuring Bernice Summerfield, tangentially links in to Bernice Summerfield Series 3.

And finally, Death Comes to Time, which was originally an animated webcast. It’s considered to be an alternate universe story, because it tries to be a series finale for Doctor Who altogether.

Death Comes to Time7thAce, Antimony

The alternate universe shown in Death Comes to Time continues in a Spin-off series called The Minister of Chance, but since that’s far removed from any actual Doctor Who, it’s not in this guide.

And now a new spin-off series starring Sarah Jane Smith, set in the modern day of 2002-ish, years after she was left on Earth by the Doctor.

Warning: This is a horror/crime series. It is very dark in tone and contains adult material that may not be suitable for younger listeners.

Sarah Jane is back to working as an investigative journalist, uncovering corruption and crime wherever she can.

Middway through this series is when The Plague Herds of Excelis (the Excelis episode that features Benny) occurs. Originally the Benny adventures were in the same segment as Excelis, but that was too confusing (not to mention completely unneccesary, as they don’t really impact on each other much.)

Doctor Who Unbound is a series focused around alternate universes and “What ifs”. Each story is built around a different alternate scenario, and features a different actor playing the Doctor.

All these stories were released in 2003, but both Auld Mortality and Sympathy for the Devil were popular enough that two sequel stories were made in 2005 and 2008.

Segment 34:
Monthly Adventures (K)
(First half of 2005)

The first half of 2005’s Monthly Adventures. Midway through this segment, Doctor Who returned to television. This was unfortunately a difficult time for Big Finish, as people abandoned the audio dramas in droves (out of a perception of illegitimacy).

The Juggernauts features the Mechanoids from the TV story The Chase.

Three’s a Crowd references many past events of Erimem’s life (in particular The Eye of the Scorpion and The Roof of the World), so you should listen to the previous Erimem stories for the full context.

Spin-off (2004–2005)

UNIT is a self-contained mini series, which sees a retired Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart advising a new UNIT team.

For more UNIT tales, you can check out the Unit Dominion boxset, released in 2012 and featuring the Seventh Doctor, and the UNIT series, released from 2015 onwards and featuring Kate Stewart and Osgood.

The last story features Colonel Brimmicombe-Wood, played by David Tennant and introduced in the Unbound story Sympathy for the Devil. As the Unbound stories are set in an alternate universe, you don’t need to listen to Sympathy for the Devil first, but there are a few references that you might enjoy if you do.

Spin-off (2006)

The second series of Sarah Jane Smith. The final episode of this series was released only a few weeks before Elizabeth Sladen returned to TV, and the subsequent creation of the spin off TV series The Sarah Jane Adventures meant that the audio dramas had to be cancelled. Unfortunately, this means that the series ends with a cliffhanger.

Segment 51:
Monthly Adventures (O)
(First half of 2007)

This segment sees a number of format experiments with the Monthly Adventures.

Firstly, Circular Time is an anthology of 4 short stories, rather than one long story. Due to it’s popular success, this format was repeated yearly.

Secondly, I.D. (a three episode story) was paired with Urgent Calls (a one episode story). This pattern would appear a few more times in the next few years, but ultimately did not catch on long term.

Monthly Adventures (S)
(First half of 2009)

The first half of the Monthly Adventures in 2009. The first 3 of these form a trilogy of adventures, called The Key 2 Time (and hence being a sequel to Season 16 of Doctor Who, The Key to Time). The new characters introduced in these stories, Amy and Zara, would go on to have stories of their own.

Starting with The Key 2 Time Trilogy, the Monthly Adventures shifted format – instead of each release being completely unrelated to the previous, the adventures are now released in trilogies, with one specific TARDIS team. These trilogies don’t neccessarily need to be listened to in order, but it is somewhat better to do so.

This is the first segment in what I’m calling the “The New Series non-series releases” – it’s a category of releases that are firmly set in the 2005-onwards era of the show, but aren’t really part of long-term series – so this category includes The Churchill Years, and Classic Doctors, New Monsters; but it doesn’t include UNIT, River Song, or The Tenth Doctor releases.

They’re all bundled together so you can just use the previous in range/next in range buttons to navigate betwen them, without having to know about their names ahead of time.

Torchwood: Aliens Among Us 1
Spin-off (2017)

Important Note: This is not the same series as the previous segment – the Monthly releases are set randomly during the TV show’s continuity (much like the Monthly Adventures is for Doctor Who), whereas Aliens Among Us is set after the TV show.

Big Finish began releasing a series of Torchwood adventures in box sets, set after the events of the TV series and previous Big Finish audio stories set after the Miracle Day. It’s sometimes advertised as Series 5 of Torchwood.
