Following the events of Journey's End , the books changed format somewhat. Beginning with The Eyeless , published in late , the books featured the Doctor travelling alone, with no ongoing companions in keeping with the format of the specials. Two new spin-off lines were introduced during the period. Quick Reads , an annual series of paperback novellas intended to promote literacy, was launched in with the novel I Am a Dalek. This spin-off line featured the return of long-time Doctor Who novelist and scriptwriter Terrance Dicks to the world of Doctor Who fiction.
A total of five Tenth Doctor novellas were published in this line, with the last issued in March ; the line continued with the Eleventh Doctor.

Also launched during this period, in conjunction with BBC Audiobooks , was a series of original, made-for-audio stories performed by cast members of the series. The first of these, Pest Control , was issued in ,. A total of seven Tenth Doctor stories were published until David Tennant performed most of these, with Catherine Tate reading two and Michelle Ryan performing one.
Again, releases continued after the introduction of the Eleventh Doctor. All of the Tenth Doctor publications other than the Quick Reads were released as audiobooks. The first three were read by David Tennant. After that, other actors from the series replaced Tennant, who did not reappear as narrator until the made-for-audio stories.

Most of these audiobooks are abridged, but some of the later novels were released as unabridged audiobooks that are only available for download. New editions of novels featuring Rose Tyler, however, omit the image of Billie Piper from the cover art. The first set of three were released in April , with more novels released later in the year.
The books had some design changes from past releases to incorporate the new Doctor Who logo introduced for the new era. The most noticeable change is that the books are taller than those published for the Ninth and Tenth Doctors, now closer in height to the Torchwood novels. They also no longer included the Gallifreyan numerical symbols on the spines of the NSA books as seen during the Eccleston and Tennant eras. In October a special, standalone New Series Adventures book was released, entitled The Coming of the Terraphiles and written by noted fantasy author Michael Moorcock.
The series resumed in , with the release of three books in April and another three in June. As well as this, a new concept of 2 in 1 books was put into action. The stories in these books were shorter than those in normal books but there were two of them per book, set at some point after Series 5 , written by two different authors. With the frequency of regular NSA releases was decreased, with the line focusing more on the standalone hardcover editions, which saw two additional releases, The Silent Stars Go By in and Dark Horizons in No "set of three" releases occurred in ; saw the release pattern change to a single batch of three per year.
The Decide Your Destiny series also continued, as did the Quick Reads novellas after a year's hiatus. Beginning in , and for the first time since , the NSA line found itself competing with BBC Books releases featuring past Doctors, beginning with the start of a reprint series featuring Target novelisations , followed by the launch of a novelisation line with Shada and the launch of a new series of standalone hardcover novels featuring past Doctors.
The final trio of Eleventh Doctor novels published in marked a major change in how the books were marketed and formatted outside the United Kingdom. Broadway Books took over the North American publishing of the books, which were now exclusively to be published in trade paperback editions, with the BBC Books hardcovers officially no longer circulated.
Broadway also began republishing older NSAs from the Eleventh Doctor and earlier eras in new standard paperback editions. The publisher released readings of the first three Twelfth Doctor novels in before the imprint returned as BBC Audio.
