City Of The Daleks

Details about the first on-line Doctor Who game have been revealed

The BBC has revealed that the first Doctor Who adventure game, available to download from the official site from 5 June, will be called “City Of The Daleks”, and will feature the Doctor and Amy venturing to Kaalann, the Dalek capital city.

“City Of The Daleks” is the first of four new adventures which take the form of downloadable computer games available for PC and Mac. The TARDIS materialises 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 (“Dreamland” and cowriter of “Waters Of Mars”) 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 the new breed of Daleks which premiered on television in Saturday’s “Victory of the 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. “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.”
