Lethbridge-Stewart was a series of novels and short stories published by Candy Jar Books beginning in 2015, overseen by editor/author Andy Frankham-Allen, and co-edited by Shaun Russell, Hayley Cox, Will Rees and Lauren Thomas. They starred recurring Doctor Who character Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart and co-starred Anne Travers.

The stories bridged the gap between The Web of Fear and The Invasion. They were not licensed by the BBC but by Henry Lincoln and the Mervyn Haisman estate, the copyright holders for the character. They included various elements of other Doctor Who stories, by agreement/license of the original authors, such as Terrance Dicks, who wrote Horror of Fang Rock, and Gary Russell, who created the Vault in The Scales of Injustice.

The series built up a new team around Lethbridge-Stewart and Anne Travers, including William Bishop, Samson Ware, and Walter Douglas. It also featured recurring characters, both Harold Chorley and Private Evans come from The Web of Fear, while new characters are added to the roster; of note are Sally Wright, Lethbridge-Stewart's fiancee, Owain Vine, Lethbridge-Stewart's nephew, and Oliver Hamilton.

The series particularly delved deeper into the history and character of Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart, creating a whole family for him not previously seen on television. Family members included; Mary Gore, his mother. James Lethbridge-Stewart, his older brother who died in 1938. Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, his father, a commander in the RAF who was declared Missing In Action at the end of World War II. The series also developed an extended family for Anne Travers and her father, Professor Travers. These included; Alun Travers, Anne's brother. Lyndon Travers, Anne's grandfather and Professor Travers' father. Margaret Travers, Anne's mother. Ben Travers, from Horror of Fang Rock, was revealed to be the uncle of Professor Travers.

As well as the novels, which tended to follow an ongoing narrative, the short stories occasionally dipped into different periods of Lethbridge-Stewart's past and future. For instance, Ashes of the Inferno was set directly after the TV story, Inferno, and The Lock-In was set around the time of his death. The Enfolded Time not only offered up a solution to the UNIT dating controversy, but also introduced the son of Lethbridge-Stewart and Doris, Albert Wilson. More family members were added in the short story Lucy Wilson, in the shape of Albert's family; his wife Tamara, sons Conall, Nick and daughter Lucy.
