Clock-Watching With Doctor Who

Please don't let Alex Kingston be in the next series Please don't let Alex Kingston be in the next series Please don't let Alex Kingston be in the next series

Aha! Missed this last week – a trailer for the upcoming ‘proper’ Doctor Who game, The Eternity Clock, which is due out on PC, PlayingStation 3 and Vitalite later this year. I don’t know what I was expecting it to be – I guess more slightly awkward point’n’click adventure fare – but so far as I can tell from this it’s a sort of side-scrolling shooty platformer.

Puts me slightly in mind of Lara Croft & The Guardian of Light, only with more Alex Kingston breathlessly saying the name of famous Who monsters. Her River Song appears to be doing plenty of shooty-bang-bang, but I can’t work out what it is the Doctor (real name Malcolm McDoctor) himself is doing when she’s doing her gunwoman thing. Is he an NPC chaperoned and protected by player-as-River? Is he purely jumpy? Does he have sonic screwdriver-waving deus ex machina abilities? Will there be collectable Fezzes hidden around the levels for achievement fiends? Oh, I don’t know. Just watch the trailer, why don’t you?

Hmm. Well, maybe it’ll be better than the last Christmas special. Which wouldn’t be hard, admittedly.
