AudioGO, producers of Doctor Who audios and soundtracks.

The End of AudioGO?

Up to a hundred jobs may be at risk after producers of Doctor Who talking books and soundtracks AudioGO (formed when BBC Audiobooks were bought out by private investors) suspended trading.

The audiobook company is based in Bath with a sizeable infrastructure of five studios and output that spanning BBC’s radio dramatic catalogue. A statement from Rachel Josephon, head of marketing and sales, released on Tuesday 22nd October read,

I can confirm that AudioGO has temporarily suspended business operations while we seek an investment or a sale of the business… there is a considerable amount of interest in AudioGO and we are hopeful of achieving a swift resolution.

It’s been reported that while sales are up, financial issues have arisen due to the general move from CDs to online purchasing and the relative prices charged. This comes in the year where AudioGO has given us the on-going anniversary saga, Destiny of the Doctor, with a tale from each incarnation every month.

The company also produces readings of the Target novelisations of classic episodes as well as the books based on nuWho and many related Who-themed radio morsels. Let’s hope there is a speedy resolution that both protects jobs and Doctor Who output!
