Originally announced as the second Eleventh Doctor audio-exclusive adventure, with a release date of 3 June 2010, it was subsequently indicated by online retailers such as Amazon that release had been delayed until 3 February 2011, before being brought forward to 7 October 2010.
The Hounds of Artemis, originally announced as the first Eleventh Doctor audio-exclusive adventure, with a release date of 8 April 2010, was delayed to 3 June 2010, and was only finally released on 5 May 2011. As a result, The Runaway Train was technically the first Eleventh Doctor audio release, although BBC Audio treated The Hounds of Artemis as the first in the series.
