New Doctor Who game setting down on iOS systems

Travelling Time Lords will be thrilled to learn that UK developer Tag Games has penned a deal with BBC Worldwide to produce a new Dr.Who game for the iPhone and iPad.

Taking its cue from the current version of the long-running Dr.Who franchise, the game will follow the 11th Doctor and his travel-buddy, Amy Pond, on a whirlwind adventure through space and time. Or so we assume; the details are fairly scarce.

According to a spokesman for BBC Worldwide, "Doctor Who is the UK's number one science fiction property, and I think it is in the BBC's top three for worldwide sales, so it is great to bring it to Dundee — especially in light of what happened at Realtime Worlds and the effect it had on Dundee.”

Saving the human race and revitalizing Scotland's video game industry? Oh, Doctor  - is there anything you can't do?

Doctor Who is scheduled to materialize in Apple's App Store early this December.

    An adventure game! Point and click (well, touch and tap) game! I love this! I LOVE THIS IDEA! I love this show. SO VERY MUCH. I may not be from the UK, but with this show, I wish I was. Minus the teeth. Seriously, Britian, ever hear of braces?

    Unlike Beef up there, I can't really see how it would work, maybe a game of puzzles? Uhh... Not much else I could think of without it being a full-fledged console game, even then I don't think those inclined to the Doctor and his antics would be willing to give it a try.

    Cool, I guess... Dr. Who isn't really my thing and I suspect this game won't be either. I can see how it might be done well though.
