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.


Doctor Who in 3D, hitting Cinemas soon

February 19, 2010

The BBC has commissioned a 3D trailer for cinemas to boost the new series. The trailer featuring Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor and is assistant Amy Pond (Karen Gillian) will be screened reportedly before Alice In Wonderland hits the screen this year.

The converted trailer will be broadcasted on BBC One this weekend (only for our UK readers), who knows whether it will work or not. I personally think it’s a great road to head down, Doctor Who is meant to be the next best thing to getting a time machine – so what better to do then launch it into the new decade by the Doctor hitting us in the face with the force of 3D.

NOTE: Just a reminder for all you non UK readers that this (sadly) does not apply to you and you will have to wait for quiet some time. But for all the UK readers, this trailer will hit the screens soon so be ready when it does.
