Doctor Who on Nintendo Wii?

March 12, 2010

Is Nintendo developing a Doctor Who game for their Wii console? We think yes, The Sun reports that BBC Worldwide have secured a multi-million (10 Million pounds to be precise) contract with Nintendo to develope a Doctor Who game for their two main consoles, the Wii and DS.

The game is said to be in the early stages of production and will feature Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor with monsters and villians such as Cybermen, Daleks and Silurians. A BBC insider has said “This has been in the pipeline for years. We’re delighted to have finally nailed down a deal. We went with Nintendo as they have huge appeal for families and Doctor Who is very much a family brand.” and “The Wii console is key for us as it’s something families play together.”

The Inside added “BBC Worldwide, which licenses BBC shows, has been trying to find some way of doing it. But you can’t have Doctor Who blowing things to bits with a laser gun. That would massively change the nature of the show”.

Also The Sun talked  to 10th Doctor David Tennat about the issues involved with it being kept from coming out before now was the treatment of the Doctor’s charater. Tennant said that “The video game was quite actively developed, but it’s difficult to nail as the Doctor doesn’t blow things up. He’s not Batman, who goes around smacking people in the head.”

It has been said that the production will be kept close under BBC supervision in the key production stages from becoming to violent.
