The Iris Wildthyme series was a collection of audio and prose stories about the adventures of Iris Wildthyme, often accompanied by her companion Panda.
The character of Iris was introduced to the Doctor Who universe in Paul Magrs' 1998 Fourth Doctor short story Old Flames before being more fully featured in several novels of BBC Books Eighth Doctor and Past Doctor ranges. She later made her audio debut in Big Finish Productions' Excelis Dawns, where she was portrayed by Katy Manning.
In August 2005, Big Finish released the prose anthology Wildthyme on Top as part of their New Worlds label. This was followed a few months later by Wildthyme at Large, the first Iris Wildthyme audio story, which notably introduced her companion Panda. In the audio plays (and on the covers of books), Iris was portrayed by or modelled on Katy Manning, who first portrayed the character in the audio story Excelis Dawns. The audio series was released by Big Finish Productions under their New Worlds banner, as was the anthology Wildthyme on Top. Anthologies of short stories and novellas featuring Iris were published by Obverse Books, and novels by Snowbooks Ltd.
From 2011 to 2013, Snowbooks Ltd released a trilogy of Magrs-penned novels about the adventures of Iris and Panda.

The May 2015 The Worlds of Big Finish audio anthology featured characters from several of Big Finish's audio ranges, including Iris Wildthyme. The story featuring Iris, Kronos Vad's History of Earth Vol. 36,379 by David Llewellyn, reintroduced the character of Captain Turner, who had not appeared since Iris' Doctor Who debut in Old Flames; he would go on to be Iris' main companion in the Big Finish boxset Wildthyme Reloaded.
