Best Doctor Who Audio Dramas

This is a list for Doctor Who audio dramas. Please do not add spin-off stories or stories that don't feature the Doctor to this list. I have a separate list for spin-off material.

The Top Ten

1 Spare Parts

The perfect introduction to Big Finish. Impactful, full of great performances and moving all throughout.

Glorious Cyberman Origin story - Deserves to be on TV. So creepy to see the Cybermen slowly becoming what we later know.

a fantastic story

Simply the best Cyber,an story ever

2 The Chimes of Midnight

An unparalleled classic. Creepy, magical, and expertly ties into the Charley drama

I'm a huge, huge, huge fan of Charley and her introduction is fantastic.

So many layers of brilliance!

Creepy and funny in equal parts

3 Master

An excellent character study of the Master. It has great characters, twists and atmospheres. The deaths champion stuff at the end is a little silly though.

Wonderfully creepy

One of the best audiobooks I've ever heard, period.

4 Jubilee

A wonderful use of both the Daleks and time travel, with an insight into the potential consequences of travelling with the Doctor.

A deliciously dark inversion of the Daleks and how their ideas are present in our society.

Really dark but superb story

5 The Holy Terror

This is so tongue in cheek yet sometimes so brutal and its very very intelligent drama too

6 A Death in the Family

Wonderful story, full of heart.

The best who story of all time.


7 The Marian Conspiracy

Both a great introduction to Evelyn and a fantastic historical.

this is by far my favourite story. it’s funny, clever and is written beautifully.

8 Absent Friends

An amazing breather episode for Liv and Helen that wrings so much emotion and character development out of them

The central premise of this story really truly made me pause and think.

9 Day of the Master

A difficult concept done beautifully.

True epic

10 Time in Office

It seems such a strange combination to have a Gallifrey story be a comedy, but this does such an amazing job. Stellar throughout.

The Newcomers

? Cobwebs
? Eldrad Must Die!

The Contenders

11 The One Doctor

Probably the funniest ever Doctor Who episode. The best way to describe The One Doctor is a big DW themed hug. It has charm and wit in abundance, you'll be in stitches throughout.

for a comedic story you wont get any finer than this

A laugh out loud, rollicking fun adventure.

laugh a minute

12 The Silver Turk

Really creepy and full of such atmosphere

13 The Kingmaker

This audio adventure makes my ears happy.

14 The Harvest
15 Terror Firma

The Eighth Doctor vs. Davros - what's not to like?

16 The Two Masters

I've listened to this one over and over and every time I hear the Doctor's moment of triumph, I giggle like a schoolgirl with joy. Every. Single. Time.


17 Davros

My favourite ever Doctor Who story. A quite simply brilliant character study of Davros with outstanding world-building, atmosphere and side characters. It is simply faultless.

A wonderful examination of what makes Davros tick.

18 The Scorchies

Amazing, 70's style, mad little fun adventure

katy manning is excellent.

19 Peri and the Piscon Paradox

For sorting out the Peri and Brian Blessed thing this story is flawless

Just perfect!

20 The Eleven

Such a wonderful opener to Doom Coalition, and a great introduction to one of the best villains in Big Finish.

21 The Trouble with Drax

A delightful caper!

22 The Foe from the Future
23 The Rocket Men
24 Damaged Goods

new adventure companions at last

25 To the Death

"One of the best sendoffs for a companion ever, Sheridan Smith will be missed... "I'll give ya a kick in the shin and you'll say 'Ouch, that hurt'..."

The showstopping, brutal finale to Lucie Miller's time with the Doctor. Never have the Daleks' power ever felt scarier
