BBC Launches Dr Who Game On June 5th

Doctor Who, the popular British science fiction television show, which is produced by the BBC, will be soon available in a four-part video game avatar, which will feature plots from some of the most recent episodes of the popular series.

According to an article on the Telegraph, the first installation of the video game, titled, 'City of Daleks', will be available for a free download from the BBC's Doctor Who page June 5th onwards.

The four Doctor Who games will be a part of the Doctor Who: The Adventure Games series.

Doctor Who, which has been acknowledged as the longest running science fiction television program in the world by the Guinness Book of World Records, follows the adventures of a humanoid alien, Who, along with his sidekicks, as he travels through space and time, battling enemies and solving mysteries.

Phil Ford, the writer of the upcoming Doctor Who video games, commenting on the first iteration of the video game series, said in a statement to the Telegraph that “This is quite a series opener. We destroy London even before the credits role - so you can only begin to imagine where we travel to from there. City of the Daleks is as big-budget as you can imagine.”

Our Comments

Doctor Who time travels via his spacecraft TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimensions in Space), which has been depicted as a blue police box from the 1950's. The fact that the BBC is giving the first episode for free is a great way to market the series. Good luck to them.
