Doom's Day was a multi-media series beginning on 20 March 2023, with its first story released on 5 June and final story on 6 October. It was released in celebration of the 60th Anniversary of Doctor Who.

Overview[[edit]]

Although predated by an early Amazon listing for the Four From Doom's Day audio anthology, set to be released in August of the same year, which appeared as early as 5 January 2023,[1] the series was first teased online by Doctor Who social media on 19 March 2023[2] via another webcast. The following day, its introductory entry, a live-action webcast entitled Meet Doom - the Universe's Greatest Assassin!, was released[3] alongside a press release on the official Doctor Who website.[4]

Various stories were released by Doctor Who Magazine, Titan Comics, Penguin Random House, Eastside Games, Big Finish, BBC Audio and the official Doctor Who YouTube channel.
