a real world point of view
Doctor Who Magazine, originally owned by Marvel UK and subsequently by Panini Comics, has published a number of graphic novels, bringing together collections of its comic stories and published as standalone publications.
In 2010 BBC Books released The Only Good Dalek, an original graphic novel comic story featuring the Eleventh Doctor, with companion Amy Pond. In 2012, they released The Dalek Project, an original graphic novel featuring the Eleventh Doctor solo.
Marvel UK published some of these graphic novels as special issues of Doctor Who Magazine, or in the case of Evening's Empire, as a special issue of Doctor Who Classic Comics. Abslom Daak - Dalek Killer was published as a trade paperback.
