Doctor Who Adventure Games Developer Diary Available
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

A new video developer diary for the BBC's Doctor Who: The Adventure Games series is now available. The downloadable series of four 'interactive episodes' based on the popular British sci-fi television series are scheduled to debut with the first episode, City of the Daleks, on June 5th. In the game the Doctor and Amy must travel to the Daleks' home planet in an effort to save Earth.

The TARDIS materializes in 1963 - and London is in ruins. The Daleks have seized control of time and the only chance of saving Earth lies in a desperate quest to Skaro, the Daleks' home planet - before time catches up with Amy, the last survivor of the human race!

Written by Phil Ford (Doctor Who: Dreamland; Sarah Jane Adventures) and executive produced by Steven Moffat, episode one of Doctor Who: The Adventure Games is full of the TV show's celebrated mix of action, peril and humour. Players will help the Doctor and Amy on an epic new adventure in an original story which forms part of the current series, traversing time and space in a dazzling episode.

'City of the Daleks' features a new breed of Daleks. Nicholas Briggs provides the voice of the Daleks, alongside Matt Smith and Karen Gillan who recreate their roles as the Doctor and Amy.

"This is quite a series opener," says Phil Ford, writer, Doctor Who. "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: from London we head to Kaalann, the capital city of the Daleks, one constructed from pure anger and hate. And these new Daleks don't like to be messed with, so players are about to enjoy a new interactive episode which is as heart-pulsing as anything you've seen before."
The Doctor Who Adventure Games will be available as a free download. For more information follow the links below.
