Fourth Adventure Game & Doctor Who Radio Times Edition

The latest news from the universe of Doctor Who:

Adventure Game 4: Shadows of the Vashta Nerada
Kicking off immediately after the cliff-hanger ending of episode three, the latest Adventure Game picks up the story of the Doctor and Amy who've materialised just south of London (and about a 1000 miles to the left), inside a sea-bed colony called Poseidon. Shadows of the Vashta Nerada features a cracking plot which surrounds a real-world conspiracy and, of course, it takes place at Christmas.

"We've gone all-out for the season finale," says Steven Moffat, executive producer and lead writer, Doctor Who. "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..."

Shadows of the Vashta Nerada will be released simultaneously on PC and Mac and available for no extra cost to UK households. Users outside the UK will be able to purchase and download it - more details coming soon.

The game was written by Phil Ford (City of the Daleks, Torchwood) and executive produced by Steven Moffat, Piers Wenger, Beth Willis and Anwen Aspden (BBC Wales, Interactive), alongside Charles Cecil. 

Radio Times Doctor Who Edition
Both Matt Smith (The Doctor) and Katherine Jen (Abigail Pettigrew) are interviewed in the magazine, and Radio Times have kindly given us a couple of excerpts from the interviews below:

Matt Smith: “It was a great privilege to do it,” he enthuses, aware of the institution the Christmas special has become since it was launched with David Tennant in 2005. “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do since I started the show. I love Christmas, plus I’ve always wanted to film something in July that has got snow in, loads of snow… it’s very Christmassy.”

Katherine Jenkins: “It was far worse than any nerves I’ve ever had for any performance,” recalls the mezzo unequivocally, a note of terror still audible in her voice. “I spent a lot of time thinking about it,” she adds. “It’s such an iconic show, and it’s one that we watch as a family. I just thought, ‘I’d love to give it a try.’

The magazine is on sale from today at all good newsagents priced £1.20 per copy. In other news: New promo images from A Christmas Carol have been released. You can view them here on Life, Doctor Who & Comdom. A press pack for the episode has also been released, including an extended synopsis. Read it here. Also, Doctor Who executive producer Pies Wenger has confirmed that no classic monsters will return in the next series.
