* ''Literature/DoctorWhoNovelisations'': By Target. During the 70s and 80s, in the days before video took off, these were '''the''' way to catch up on previous ''Doctor Who'' stories. They retold (and frequently expanded on) the stories on TV, and several of them are highly acclaimed. Usually also available as audiobooks, read by the TV series actor(s). Almost every story from the classic series got a novelisation, with the TV Movie's being done by BBC Books; the five that didn't get one ("The Pirate Planet", "City of Death", "Shada", "Resurrection of the Daleks" and "Revelation of the Daleks") received fan novelisations courtesy of the New Zealand Doctor Who Fan Club. (If you noticed that three of the five are Douglas Adams stories, you're right. Adams wouldn't allow others to novelise his scripts, and - notorious procrastinator that he was - never did them himself. Also, with ''Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' having taken off in the meantime, Target Books was no longer able to afford the advances he commanded.) "Shada" eventually received an official novelisation by BBC Books in 2012, written by Gareth Roberts. "City of Death" also received a BBC novelisation in 2015; initially it was announced that it would again be by Roberts, but it was eventually written by ''Torchwood'' writer James Goss. A novelisation of "The Pirate Planet" by Goss came out in 2017, with another Adams-written work - the never-produced ''Doctor Who and the Krikkitmen'' - scheduled to be adapted by Goss for 2018 release. Also scheduled for 2018 are the first full novelisations of stories from the revival series: "Rose", written by Creator/RussellTDavies, "The Christmas Invasion", written by Jenny Colgan, "The Day of the Doctor", written by Creator/StevenMoffat, and "Twice Upon a Time", written by Creator/PaulCornell.

* ''Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures'': Created after the show was cancelled, as an official continuation of the adventures of the Seventh Doctor and, initially, Ace. Also known as "Virgin New Adventures", after their publisher. Choosing to aim for an audience of 25 and up fans and readers of ScienceFiction (versus targeting a younger, less reverent demographic, as they also considered), they made both the Doctor and the tone of the entire franchise DarkerAndEdgier. They also made the stories a bit harder on the MohsScaleOfScienceFictionHardness (the television series had gone in that direction anyway). The novels (more because of the creativity of the fans-turned-authors RunningTheAsylum than by ExecutiveMeddling) riffed over each other's contributions. Future ShowRunner Creator/RussellTDavies contributed one of the novels, ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoNewAdventuresDamagedGoods Damaged Goods]]''. Other writers for the New Adventures would later write for the 2005 revival series. The penultimate New Adventures novel featuring the Doctor, ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoNewAdventuresLungbarrow Lungbarrow]]'' by Creator/MarcPlatt, also went into the Doctor's secret BackStory, hinted about onscreen. After Virgin lost the licence, they decided they'd accumulated enough world-building to continue without him, and continued for two more years to release "New Adventures" novels (without the "Doctor Who") featuring characters original to the series; in particular, the series shifted its focus to:

That said, the first two seasons of ''The Sarah Jane Adventures'' were adapted into novels, Creator/NeilGaiman was invited to adapt his 2011 episode "The Doctor's Wife", and the short story collection ''The Story of Martha'' was a partial adaptation of the Series 3 finale, so others may be possible in the future.
