Originally announced as the second Eleventh Doctor audio adventure release, with an issue date of 3 June 2010, it was subsequently indicated by online retailers such as Amazon that released had been delayed until 3 February 2011. However, they pushed release forward to 6 October 2010.
It was then announced that the UK newspaper The Daily Telegraph, would be issuing The Runaway Train as a special promotional giveaway with its issue of 24th April 2010. The audio The Hounds of Artemis, originally scheduled for release on 8 April, was moved to 3 June, and was only finally released in 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.
