Additional notes Edit
- This year's release followed the format (and success), of recent years, with two releases: the Doctor Who The Official Annual 2009 (published by BBC Children's Books) and the Doctor Who Storybook 2009 (published by Panini). While the latter presented a series of short illustrated fiction stories, the former concentrated on the lighter side of activities, games, puzzles and, once again, all new, comic strip stories.
- Released in the UK following the fourth television series (with the Tenth Doctor) the cover featured a large shiny foil cover with the Tenth Doctor and the Supreme Dalek on the front and Davros on the back cover.
- Of particular note is the increased page count, the addition of a third comic strip story, a second prose story, posters with an unobtrusive "cut" line near the spine, pitched at a slightly older audience, more features than before including The Sarah Jane Adventures and, best of all, all for the same price as last year! This is destined to be a bigger seller than even last years!
- Individual page credits are given on the title page but are not complete.
- Early prototype cover shows the tenth doctor and three of the same sontaran (General Staal) on the cover
