The fourth episode in the Dr Who adventure game series, Shadows of the Vashta Nerada, will go online as soon as the television Christmas special episode finishes airing in the UK. That’s the plan, anyway. Producer Steven Moffat says: “Shadows of the Vashta Nerada takes place entirely underwater – something which would be impossible for the TV series, as water is so expensive. It’s thrilling, terrifying, educational and fun. Just steer clear of those shadows…” The BBC’s game budget is set to expand, too, with more Dr Who games turning up next year, and probably some other stuff, too.
Britons can get the rest of the games for free here. I haven’t played a single one of these. Any good?
