Doctor Who Books – New Reprints

Earlier on this blog I wrote a number of entries, lists really, of the various ranges of Doctor Who books. However, those books, especially those published by Virgin Publishing are now long out of print. For new Doctor Who fans, or even for established Doctor Who fans looking to fill holes in their collection, they can be hard to find, and often demand inflated collectors’ prices.

Never fear though, as a result of the 50th Anniversary bringing attention to the entirety of the program, BBC books has started to release a series of series of books reprinting classic adventures from previous book series. Reading the individual book description will tell you what Doctor and sometimes what companions are featured in the books, but details such as which book series the title came from originally are missing. This list aims to fill in that gap. Listed below are the book series that I know of with their titles (Anniversary, Monster, and History collections) the books in each series, the Doctor for each book, the companions (if known), and the original book series it came from (such as the Past Doctor Adventures or the Missing Adventures). Please see my other posts on the subject for information on those book series, specifically. Also, I’m including links to articles about each series of books from which I assembled this list. Where necessary I also consulted Amazon, especially in regards to the History Collection.  Please inform me in the comments of any corrections or additions. Thank you.
