A New DOCTOR WHO Videogame

Posted by No_name_here (1225 posts) - - Show Bio

 WHO is she? WHAT is that Box? WHEN was this photo taken? WHERE is that roof? WHY?

DOCTOR WHO’s one of those sci-fi mainstays I’ve never gotten into, even though I know the series’ fans are a dedicated breed. Something of a clandestine cabal, actually. Any person you meet could be a DOCTOR WHO devotee. Thus, you have to just assume that every person you encounter is one.  Anyway, the Who’s in this global Whoville have a quartet of interactive episodes to look forward to in DOCTOR WHO: THE ADVENTURE GAMES.  I don’t know who any of these people are, but the games will included the voices and likeness Matt Smith and Karen Gillan within a story written by Phil Ford and James Moran.  There’s nothing better than finding a good deal on a product you enjoy and there’s no deal better than free, is there?   It doesn’t matter if you usually raise your hand and say “I’m a Mac” or “I’m a PC” (because identifying one’s self with a product is a true badge of individualism) - - the games will be available for both operating systems via bbc.co.uk/doctorwho .

We’ve also got three clips from a new episode of the show. Again, I don’t know too much about the Doctor, except to say that, based on these clips, he comes across as quit the negligent date.  Sure, answering your cell during dinner is a bit rude, but it’s not as bad as leaving the girl dangling above Earth, now is it? Just to put in perspective.   And the other observation is the redhead in these clips is one pretty Scottish lass. Dare I ask… WHO is she?
 
Anyway, enjoy the clips below...

I wonder what's with the creepy Zoltar machine. Looks like this will be one of Moffat's attempts at making Who a bit more scary for the kids.

I did read that somewhere. 
 
Also It may have been better to get a Staff member who knew about The Doctor to write the article, Inferiego is a big fan. It just makes more sense!

I didn't know that! :)  A bit like how Freema played Martha's cousin, before she landed the role of Martha... 
 
While I'm not a big gamer (I tend to stick with one game at a time, and stick with it for months) and therefore don't think I'll get a Doctor Who video game, I have been enjoying this new series so far... looking forward to episode two tonight.

How would the video game go? Some things shouldn't be made into video games like i when the movie Elektra came out i heard that they were gonna make a video game for that. Don't get me wrong i'm a huge Elektra fan but i think it would have been sort of stupid. Like if they do this.

Not trying to grab the snake by the tail but is Doctor Who really that good? Just curious, cause I've heard alot of good things about it, but never watched it.

@Nyogtha:  Its epic but don`t take it from anyone else but yourself just check it out once in a while.
 
 There should be a rule about letting a noob make article from stuff he knows nothing about, Let Methos make a a guest article next time lol! >_>

I've been here on ComicVine for longer than you and have read comics when you trolls couldn't even swim. You're only here to troll, just like you are in movies and television and everything else you troll in. 
 
You'd know all about haters, troll. Quit while you can.

And I have been here longer then you, what diffrence does that make and coming in to a thread about DR who and calling it Cr@p is of course going to start a flame war, I don't see anyother reason for you to post the way you did but to get a reaction from other users. hence why im removing your remarks. as well as Kaymen as he quoted you, this thread is not here for a flame war!
