The Last Dodo is a BBC Books original novel written by Jacqueline Rayner and based on the long running science fiction television series Doctor Who.[1] It features the Tenth Doctor and Martha Jones. It was published on 19 April 2007, after the television debut of companion Martha Jones, alongside Sting of the Zygons, and Wooden Heart.


The Doctor and Martha Jones go searching for the last dodo. They end up in a museum featuring the last examples of extinct species, all in suspended animation. Many of the exhibits are going missing. The Doctor himself is in danger because he is the last of his race.

Publication notes[edit]

  • The novel was originally announced for September 2006 as The Last Museum, before being replaced with The Price of Paradise. This happened because the writer had not finished writing the book.[citation needed]
  • The book was originally going to feature Rose.[citation needed]


An abridged audio book was released in July 2007 by BBC Audiobooks and read by Freema Agyeman (Martha Jones in the television series).
