The award is for Dark Eyes, a four-part story written and directed by Nicholas Briggs and starring Paul McGann as the Doctor. The drama also featured Ruth Bradley as Molly O'Sullivan and Peter Egan as Straxus, as well as the Daleks, with Briggs providing the Dalek voices, as he does for the TV series.

The awards pay tribute to the cultural importance of audio drama, on air and online, and are intended to give recognition to the actors, writers, producers, sound designers and others who work in the genre.

In addition, Claire Rushbrook was voted Best Supporting Actress in an Audio Drama for her portrayal of Jules in the BBC Radio 3 production King David.

This year's winners were announced at a ceremony in the Radio Theatre at BBC Broadcasting House in central London, hosted by Lenny Henry and BBC Director General Tony Hall.

The Awards cover audio dramas first broadcast in English in the UK between 1 October 2012 and 31 October 2013 – or first uploaded/published for free listening online in the UK during the same period.
