    reviews have been horrendous. Usually its best to try a game first but in this case I say avoid like the plague.

    Just look at the cover! It screams a lack of effort.

    Well I am a very big Dr. Who fan BUT I already didn't like the PC game and that Card game for Wii ... sadly I couldn't find any gameplay trailer yet but I hope this will not dissapoint me as much as the other games.

    Well there is one good thing ... the cover looks nice ^^

    Now I wonder where the DS game "Doctor Who Evacuation Earth" is... EU should have come out on 12th November, AU one on 25th November...
    I love Doctor Who as well and hope both Return to and Evacuation Earth are good..

    The DS one is supposed to be a lot better though nothing more than "Professor Layton light". Both of these games have been out here since last Friday, well in Sainsburys anyway which is where I saw them.

    I'll try that one but this I wont waste a moment on. Shame that the free PC games are supposed to be better.

    Even if this is utter crap I'm such a huge nerd fan of the show that I'm still going to at least have to check it out.

    I saw the D as I was scrolling down and my heart skipped a bit thinking it's DKCR, then I saw it was Doctor Who and said to myself "Doctor Who has so much potential for an awesome game but we'll never see one"

    I won't even bother with this one, I LOVE Doctor Who but we'd know if they were making a quality Doctor Who game, this is just random shovelware I didn't even know was coming out.

    I don't get it. Why the heck do the darn Brits get this first.

    Just kidding.

    Been watching Dr. Who since I was a kid. An NTSC release would be cool to see soon.

    Anyone remember the episode in the 80s where all the Doctors came together? Anyone know what it was called?

    If they made a Dr. Who game, is there hope for a Red Dwarf game perhaps? [​IMG]

    So this is pretty much to the new series what "A Fix With Sontarans" and "Dimensions In Time" were to the classic series: utterly disastrous non-canon productions made during the off-seasons.

    I think a Red Dwarf game would have to be a very dialogue heavy adventure game in the style of Monkey Island to have even a slim chance of being any good. But let's face it, never gonna happen.

    I think this is something like the 8th Doctor Who game now (I think the first was on the BBC/Acorn Electron) and I don't think there's ever been a half-decent one. Shame really but I'm not holding my breath for a developer to ever come up with much more than either shooting Daleks or zapping crystals with a Wii remote.

    One where you actually travelled in time a bit and your choices could affect the environment/gameplay would be good but I don't think anyone's ever going to spend too much time on gameplay for a Doctor Who game. As one review pretty much said, why bother spending time on things like that when the name alone is pretty much a licence to print money? It'll sell enough anyway.

    Yeah and they have a good amount of viewers for its time slot, the fact its not American and not advertised.

    Also there was a decent enough Doctor Who and the Mines of Terror (or something) on C64/Amstrad.

    Heck yeah. Dr. Who was always on PBS (public television). Granted, I don't know what the following is now, but in the 80s it was pretty popular. I think it appealed to the Star Trek crowd. I would imagine there would still be interest here for the video game. I mean IMO gamers and sci-fi kind of go hand in hand, don't they?
