BBC Physical Audio previously known as BBC Audio, which was later purchased by AudioGO, are the producers of official BBC audiobooks and CDs. Previously, the branding BBC Radio Collection was used for release of radio dramas based upon the series. Also released under the banner — although technically incorrectly as they were never intended for radio — were edited TV soundtracks taken initially from episodes that had been deleted by the BBC.
In in July 2010 AudioGO purchased BBC Audio, thereby inheriting all Doctor Who, Torchwood and SJA audio material previously released. After the takeover, they retained the brand identity "BBC Audio" as an imprint. AudioGO entered administration in October 2013. Rights to AudioGO's BBC-licenced content for the UK were transferred to Random House in December 2013. Since November 2014, BBC Physical Audio have released Doctor Who audiobooks.
