Doctor Who has always had the virtue of being spread wide across many forms of media beyond television such as books and audio productions, something the newly formed company AudioGO (The new name for BBC Audiobooks) is flaunting with the release of Doctor Who: The BBC Radio Episodes, which will be released on the 7th of April 2011.
The collection of nine discs spans twenty years of Doctor Who on radio, from the Tom Baker era to a time right before the 1996 Paul McGann TV Movie. Included in the collection are:
