The Doctor Who photo novelisations were a series of prose adaptations of select episodes of Doctor Who, published by Pearson.

Although the books were not published by BBC Books, they carried the BBC logo. The first four novelisations were adaptions from the fifth series of Doctor Who. On 29 May 2018, three more novelisations were released, adapting stories from the series 8. Later, on 16 August 2018, three more novelisations of stories from series 9 were released.

They were part of a school reading programm that teaches children how to read. All Doctor photo novelisations were suitable for fluent plus readers. They only had a few text and a lot of photos, which illustrated the text.

Two of the novelisations were written by Trevor Baxendale and, other two were written by Peter Gutierrez. Two more were written by Jamie Matheson and one was written by Mark Gatiss. Peter Gutierrez's photo novels had less text than Trevor Baxendale's photo novels and were more like a photo comic.

Next to the Doctor Who photo novelisations, four similar The Sarah Jane Adventures photo novelisations were published two years before the Doctor Who novelisations.
