Doctor Who Multiplayer Game - Press Pack

The BBC Press Office have announced that BBC Worldwide are set to start production on a new Doctor Who multiplaye online game:

Leading up to the San Francisco Game Developers Conference (GDC), BBC Worldwide today announced a major new partnership with game developer Three Rings to create BBC Worldwide's first ever free-to-play multiplayer online game centered around the blockbuster drama television show, Doctor Who.

For the first time ever, players from around the world will be able to follow in the footsteps of the eccentric and brilliant Doctor by travelling through time and space, exploring new worlds and encountering many alien races, both friend and foe. Titled Doctor Who: Worlds in Time, the game allows players to enter the TARDIS and be set a challenge by the mysterious Time Lord to help him defend civilized culture against infamous Doctor Who enemies.

Robert Nashak, EVP Digital Entertainment at BBC Worldwide says, "Doctor Who: Worlds in Time will be a free-to-play multiplayer online game that invites players to save the universe by using their wits to solve time-bending puzzles and pulse-pounding challenges. Three Rings is the ideal team for this groundbreaking creative partnership. Not only are they visionaries in the online gaming space, they are lifelong Doctor Who fans with a passion for delivering the level of quality that our players will expect and deserve."

Daniel James, CEO Three Rings says, "Three Rings is delighted and honored to have the opportunity to create an online game based on Doctor Who. Our goal with Words in Time is to capture the imaginative spirit and depth of the series, whilst being fun and easy to play for all ages."

Doctor Who: Worlds in Time is developed to be both highly engaging and fun, allowing players to socialize and foster genuine cooperation, building a global community where fans worldwide will now be able to experience first hand the exciting action and adventure synonymous with Doctor Who. Development is well underway and is expected to launch later this year.

Doctor Who is one of BBC Worldwide's flagship brands, and is increasingly popular around the globe. The program in its current incarnation has been sold to over 50 territories worldwide and debuted to a record audience on BBC America. The show has a proud award-winning history, with over 65 awards including BAFTA's for Best Drama and Best Writer, and it also holds the Guinness World Record for Most Successful Sci-Fi Show of All Time. On top of this, the brand now has over 55 licensees signed in the UK alone. 

In 2010, Doctor Who Live played to over 130,000 fans across the UK, and the Doctor Who Experience just opened to fans at London's Olympia. In 2010, the first ever Doctor Who gaming app, Doctor Who: Mazes of Time was released and featured as iPad Game of the Week on launch as well as Doctor Who: The Adventure Games which is available for PC download.

Both BBC Worldwide and Three Rings will be available at the Game Developers Conference next week.

It is unknown when Doctor Who: Worlds in Time will be released, but more details are coming soon. In other news: The BBC have recently confirmed that James Gorden will return to Doctor Who as his character Craig Owens in the second half of series six later this year.

Doctor Who: Revelation of the Daleks Figure Set

Character Options have revealed info on a new classic Doctor Who figure set:

Revelation of the Daleks
The Sixth Doctor and Peri arrive on the planet Necros where, in a facility called Tranquil Repose, presided over by Mr Jobel and his assistant Tasambeker, the wealthy can have their newly-deceased bodies cryogenically frozen until such time as medical science can cure whatever killed them.

The Doctor wishes to pay his last respects to his friend Professor Arthur Stengos, and also to assuage some nagging suspicions about the man's death. His suspicions prove justified, as it turns out that this is just a ruse to lure him into a trap.

The Great Healer masterminding Tranquil Repose is Davros, who is using the organic material in the cryogenic storage units both as the raw material for the synthetic food that is Necros's biggest export and also to create a whole new army of Daleks with which to take control of the universe.

Davros's plans are foiled when Daleks loyal to the Dalek Supreme arrive on Necros and take him prisoner. The Doctor suggests to the planet's inhabitants a new basis for their economy.

In this exclusive set we present Davros, a Necros Dalek, a Skaro Dalek and the Sixth Doctor in his blue mourning cloak.

The figure set is on sale from early April priced £34.99. In other news: it has recently been announced that actor Nicholas Courtney, best known for have played the Brigadier in Doctor Who and recently The Sarah Jane Adventures, has sadly passed away.

Doctor Who Magazine - Issue 431

The cover and info on this month's edition of Doctor Who magazine:

The latest issue of Doctor Who magazine features an exclusive interview with writer Mark Gatiss, who lets slip a few details about his new script for Matt Smith’s second series (series six to the rest of you; ultimately, season 32…)

Doctor Who has been the biggest thing in my life really, and it’s entirely because I was scared stiff of it - but I loved it,” says Mark. “It didn’t traumatise me, and a healthy scare is as important as a good laugh. It’s exactly the same emotion, I think. Steven Moffat said to me, ‘Make a Barret home terrifying like you did in Crooked House, but Crooked House was on at ten o’clock at night, this is on at six. You have to find that balance…”


The gloves are off! Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat comes out fighting against the critics in this month’s Production Notes, and explains why the show is for everyone, and not ‘just’ for kids…

Tegan is back! No-nonsense Australian Janet Fielding, recently reunited with her former crewmates for brand new audio adventures, reveals how she was persuaded to return - and what she thinks about Doctor Who today! (Just don’t mention the cricket.)

The Eighth Doctor’s audio adventures are about to reach an incredible climax! DWM speaks to stars Carole Ann Ford, Graeme Garden, Sheridan Smith, Niky Wardley and Nicholas Briggs about battling the Daleks - and who might die in the process…

Cannibalistic old ladies, teenage girl gangs, and something very unpleasant in the basement. It can only be the Seventh Doctor’s adventure in Paradise Towers, analysed in The Fact of Fiction. Ice hot!

Want to take a trip in the Tardis? Of course you do! Well, now you can, at the brand new Doctor Who Experience, opening at Kensington Olympia this month. DWM presents an exclusive preview of what to expect…

Giant heads, blue faces and a whole lot of wood. No longer just a Saturday night in Hoxton - it’s a new adventure for the Time Team, as they travel to witness The End of the World!

Continuing our Countdown to the 50 years of Doctor Who, writer Simon Guerrier looks at First Doctor William Hartnell’s second series - a season that saw the series reach incredible heights of popularity…

Doctor Who was one of the most-watched shows last year - but just how well did it go against the rest of television? DWM provides the ultimate guide to how the series fared against the competition in 2010 in Public Image.

Golden and tank-like or big-bootied and colourful? Toby Hadoke and Jonny Candon go head-to-head as they debate the pros and cons of Dalek design in A Battle of Wits! Will either of them manage to convince you…?

A page full of random journeys, supporting artists, fascinating facts and the Bidmead-ometer… it’s another dollop of Who madness in Wotcha!

All the official news, straight from the Doctor Who studios at Upper Boat; forthcoming CDs and DVDs previewed; the latest CDs and DVDs reviewed; your letters; competitions to win an array of exciting Doctor Who merchandise; our fiendish crossword; and much more!
