Doctor Who Adventures Ep 3 Will Be: Tardis

I am totally Karen Gillen.

Crikey. How novel. News not from Gamescom. The third of the four Doctor Who Adventure games had the first detailed leaked. It’s called Tardis and – clearly not wanting to lead people astray with its title – features the Tardis prominently, allowing you to totally fly the now-anachronistic police-call-box through the time-stream. It also will allow you to step into the Doctor’s Drawing room, which the developers talked about extensively when I covered the game on release, and basically promises to be a Batman-style collection of objects, but done in the Sherlock Holmes style. Basically. Full press release below, because it’s all that’s been released so far and including it with the story really annoys someone who’s quite fun to bait.

Do U Cybr? Blood Of The Cybermen Out

It's very disturbing to have the entire internet lusting after someone with basically your name.

Since I’m behind on Who, I’ve avoided playing it yet – I fear it may include spoilers for the final part – but if you’re up to date or just don’t care, the second of the Who adventure games is now available to download and play. You can get it from here, assuming that you’re in Britain. If you’re not – er – you’ll have to wait. And if you’re on a mac, you’ll have to wait too. Its version isn’t out until Wednesday, apparently. Anyone played this? Better/Worse than the first part? Oh – and here’s the trailer.

Untardy: Blood of the Cybermen On Saturday

A quick one this. The second of the four Doctor Who episodes debuts on Saturday, immediately after the series finale. It involves Cybermen. Perhaps also their blood. I’m reaching here. Let writer Phil Ford explain: “”Blood of the Cybermen is classic ‘Who… From the intriguing title, through the pre-credits intro to the mystery surrounding the Arctic base, this is everything you expect from a TV episode – only this time you control the action. It’s an epic story, and one we could only tell in a computer game. We’ve ambitious sets, a thrill-a-minute narrative, and we re-introduce a Doctor Who adversary not seen since the Tom Baker era.” IS IT A BIG SCARF? Like the first, it’ll be available for free online, from the Who site. They claim the first episode had 525,000 downloads in the first twelve days. Which is impressive, but strikes me as lower than you may expect. Screenshots of Amy dressed impractically follow…

Semi-Live Blog: Doctor Who Adventures

Update – all done!

I’ll fix this into a nice and tidy post later, but for now keep refreshing to see my thoughts on City of the Daleks as I play. I make no apology for typos, gibberish or nerdery.

Timely Lord: Dr Who Adventures Out Already

Super quick link ‘em up post, as I’ll hopefully be bunging up some impressions a bit later tonight. BUT the first episode of the free Doctor Who Adventures, City of The Daleks, has mysteriously turned up for download already, despite officially not due until Saturday. UK only for now, however.

Kieron is stood behind me as I write this, and insists I write “Knock, knock.” “Who’s there?” “Doctor.” “Doctor who?” “Yes!”

That is all.
