Playing with the Doctor

As further proof that the young'uns are the ones that get the best competitions, the BBC are currently running a contest to design a new Doctor Who online game. The winning idea will be turned into a game for the BBC website, and its creator will be invited to take part in the development process. Runners-up will receive individual feedback on their game ideas and some goody bags. Pretty nice all round.

The snag is that it's only open to UK residents aged 13-19. Bah! But hey, if you were born between 1988 and 1994 and fancy your chances (or if you know someone who fits the bill) then check out the rules and details at bbc.co.uk . The competition closes at 5pm on Friday 10 August.
