The Doctor Who Audio Guide by Colin John Francis, was first published by DWAS in 2005 and covered every official Doctor Who audio title from 1963 to 2005, with an updated version extended up to 2008 being published in 2010.

The Society is now pleased to publish volume 2 which covers all releases from 2009 to 2013. The guide is fully indexed by title, cast and crew and the index to the second volume is consolidated to cover volume 1 as well.

The book is A4 with a full-colour cover by Nigel Thomas, featuring Tom Baker as the fourth Doctor from The Pescatons.

Each book is sold in support of Marie Curie Cancer Care. Colin Francis choose this charity in memory of a friend he met whilst working as a bluecoat at Pontins in the early 1990s. His friend died overnight from the cancer that he was too proud to tell people he was suffering from.
