Doctor Who Audio Dramas — Listening Order (No Reviews)

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.

The List

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

1976–1998 (before Big Finish)

New Ranges in 1976–1998

If you’ve listened to everything up to this point, you’ve listened to 0 audio dramas and 0 audio books.

Segment 1:
BBC radio dramas
(1976-1996)

The BBC has produced surprisingly few audio dramas related to Doctor Who – only five of which 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.

Story Doctor Featuring
Doctor Who and the Pescatons 4th Sarah Jane
Exploration Earth 4th Sarah Jane
Slipback 6th Peri
The Paradise of Death 3rd Sarah Jane, Brigadier
The Ghosts of N-Space 3rd Sarah Jane, Brigadier
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.

Story Featuring
The Choice K9, “The Mistress”
The Search K9, “The Mistress”

1999–2000

New Ranges in 1999–2000:

If you’ve listened to everything up to this point, you’ve listened to 7 audio dramas and 0 audio books.

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
(2000)

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.

Story Featuring
Oh No It Isn’t! Wolsey, Grel
Beyond the Sun Jason Kane
Walking to Babylon Jason Kane, John Lafayette
Birthright Jason Kane, John Lafayette
Just War Jason Kane

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.

Story Featuring
I Scream

Next, is a series of audio dramas about Sontarans.

Story Featuring
Silent Warrior Sontarans
Old Soldiers Sontarans

Where to get them

(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 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.

Story Featuring
Invasion of the Daleks
The Human Factor
“Death to the Daleks!”
Project Infinity

2002

New Ranges in 2002:

If you’ve listened to everything up to this point, you’ve listened to 57 audio dramas and 5 audio books.

Segment 13:
Monthly Adventures (E)
(First half of 2002)

The first half of 2002’s Monthly Adventures focused on the Eighth Doctor. These stories form a kind of “season”, with a story arc, so (unlike other Monthly Adventures segments) I highly recommend that you listen to these in order.

Story Doctor Featuring
Invaders From Mars 8th Charley
The Chimes of Midnight 8th Charley
Seasons of Fear 8th Charley
Embrace the Darkness 8th Charley
The Time of the Daleks 8th Charley, Daleks
Neverland 8th Charley, Time Lords
Segment 14:
Excelis, and Bernice Summerfield: Series 3
Spin-off (2002)

This segment is a bit complicated – we’ve got two different series with a merged storyline. One series is Bernice Summerfield: Series 3, and the other series is the Excelis Saga, a sequence of adventures set in the city of Excelis.

A note on placement

It’s difficult to decide where to place this segment, as the Excelis Saga and Bernice Summerfield Series 3 were released almost a year apart.

MaximumSpidercide (who created the listening order that inspired me to make this one) decided to put it here, because keeping Excelis in the right place is important.

Excelis Dawns and Excelis Rising are both available as Downloads, but the rest of this segment is CD only.

Story Series Featuring
The Greatest Shop in the Galaxy Summerfield Joseph
The Green-Eyed Monsters Summerfield Jason, Adrian, Peter
Excelis Dawns Excelis 5th Doctor, Iris Wildthyme, Mother Superior
Excelis Rising Excelis 6th Doctor, Mother Superior

Segment 16:

(2002)

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).

Story Doctor Featuring
The Ratings War 6th Beep the Meep

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.

Story Featuring
The Switching 3rd Doctor, The Master

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.

Story Doctor Featuring
Death Comes to Time 7th Ace, 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.

A series produced by Big Finish, featuring hypothetical stories set in variants of the Doctor Who universe, with premises fundamentally altered – such as “what if the Doctor hadn’t left Gallifrey” or “what if the Doctor hadn’t been UNIT’s scientific advisor”.

Each of the first 6 stories in this series is a new “What if”. The last 2 are sequels to previous ones – A Storm of Angels is a sequel to Auld Mortality, and Masters of War is a sequel to Sympathy for the Devil. Additionally, David Warner’s Doctor (from Sympathy for the Devil/Masters of War) later crosses paths with Bernice Summerfield in The New Adventures of Bernice Summerfield — The Unbound Universe.

Story What If…
Auld Mortality What if… the Doctor and Susan had never left Gallifrey?
Sympathy for the Devil What if… the Doctor had not been UNIT’s scientific advisor?
Full Fathom Five (hidden due to spoilers)
He Jests at Scars… What if… the Valeyard had won?
Deadline (An alternate version of the history of the TV show)

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.

Spin-off (2017)

This next series of stories was never marketed as “Series 3” and instead is bundled as “stories 13–18”. They did this because shortly afterwards they would start writing a continuation of the TV show, and wanted to reduce confusion.

Unlike the previous series, which focused on the Committee, this series has no overall arc.
