Doctor Who video game bound for Sony PlayStation 3

BBC Worldwide will release The Eternity Clock next year in HD for digital download and on the games console

Doctor Who will soon be available on Sony Playstation as BBC Worldwide announced the first in a series of new games for consoles.


Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock will be launched next year in HD for digital download and on the PlayStation 3, the new handheld PlayStation Vita, and in PC format – and could expand to other formats in the future.

The game, which has been hinted at in a teaser trailer on BBC Worldwide’s YouTube channel, will require players to take on the roles of the Doctor and River Song as they battle to save the Earth on a journey through time and space.

Stars Matt Smith and Alex Kingston have recorded the voice acting for the game, with new storylines scripted in collaboration with the BBC Wales team behind the show.

The remaining two games in the series, developed by Supermassive Games, will be announced in 2012.

Robert Nashak, EVP of Digital Entertainment at BBC Worldwide, said: “We’re creating these new games for Playstation 3 and Vita with adaptations that will bring the wonder, adventure and madness of Doctor Who to each platform.


“Working with a top-tier UK development partner like Supermassive Games demonstrates BBC Worldwide’s commitment to create world-class Doctor Who games for fans of the show and gamers alike.”
