The Doctor Who Files are a series of hardback titles from BBC Children's Books published by the Penguin Group from 2006 onwards. It should not be confused with The Doctor Who Files, a series of magazine-style publications that were published in the US in the 1980s and early 1990s.
All of the titles in this range so far have had a a hexagonal cut out in the cover, through which can be seen the featured character (or topic) on the inside page. They are numbered on the spine. Aimed at young readers, each title is lavishly illustrated with photographs and broken down into small sections of text under various heading with every other page (almost), having a gate-fold (fold out page) "Test your Knowledge" sections of five multiple choice questions based on the preceding prose. Every title in this series has featured a new short prose story.
