- You may be looking for IDW's 2010 Doctor Who Annual.
Doctor Who The Official Annual 2010 was, as opposed to the BBC-licensed Doctor Who Storybook 2010, the BBC-published annual publication supporting Doctor Who. Like most British annuals, it was actually published in the late summer of the year prior to the cover year. This is why it featured the Tenth and not the Eleventh Doctor. It was the final BBC annual to feature Tennant's Doctor — something which was a significant part of the marketing of the book.

Additional notes Edit
- This release again followed the format (and success), of recent years, with two releases, the Doctor Who The Official Annual 2010 (published by BBC Children's Books) and the Doctor Who Storybook 2010 (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 this year, all new comic strip stories.
- Released in the UK during the year of Doctor Who Specials which saw the Tenth Doctor travelling alone, the cover featured a large shiny foil cover with the Tenth Doctor on the front and the TARDIS on the back cover.
- This annual had a price increase and a lower page count to that of the previous year's publication.
- This annual had "The 10th Doctor's Last Annual!" on the back cover.
- Individual page credits are given on the title page but are not extensively detailed.
