BBC confirm Doctor Who time-travelling to games consoles soon

Share

BBC Worldwide have confirmed that plans are underway for the Doctor Who TV show to once again make the transition into the realm of video games.

“We’re having a lot of interesting discussions for a variety of ideas around Doctor Who that are complementary to each rather than in competition with each other – boxed product console games, virtual worlds and other experiences,” said Dave Anderson, head of multimedia development at BBC Worldwide.

“The deals we are looking at are in different spaces, probably looking at overlapping but different audiences and are certainly delivering a different kind of experience.

“The Doctor Who audience who love that show want to have different experiences around it and it has a huge shelf life going back 47 years – it’s about managing and satisfying expectations of both older and younger audiences.”

Chances are the games will be a fair bit more advanced than the above video of 1992’s Dalek Attack game for the Amiga. But just listen to those synths! Mental!
