Doctor Who at the BBC: The Tenth Doctor was the 2007 instalment in BBC Audio's annual Doctor Who at the BBC CD documentaries. Presented by Elisabeth Sladen, this release followed the pattern of most of the others in featuring audio clips of radio and TV interviews and features relating to Doctor Who.

While previous releases dealt with primarily the 1963-89 era of the series, The Tenth Doctor, as the name suggests, focuses on the series between 2005 when David Tennant's casting as the Tenth Doctor was announced, and the end of 2006 and the telecasts of The Runaway Bride and Invasion of the Bane.

Although released annually since 2003, there was no 2008 issue of Doctor Who at the BBC; the series resumed in 2009 with Doctor Who at the BBC: A Legend Reborn.
