Dr Who enters Adventure gaming

from bbc.co.uk

Doctor Who will be regenerating earlier than expected - this time into a character in a computer game.

Writers from the hit BBC show have joined forces with videogame creator Charles Cecil to come up with four interactive episodes of the show.

It is part of the BBC's drive to increase computer literacy among those who aren't regular net users.

The creators of Doctor Who: The Adventure Games hope it will bring new people into computer gaming.

"Establishing new forms of drama is exactly what the BBC should be doing," said Simon Nelson, head of BBC multiplatform in Vision.

"By aiming these interactive episodes at the broad audience of the TV show - unique in British television, in that it encompasses at least three generations - we're aiming to encourage the family to gather round the PC or Mac in the same way they do the television," he added.

The four two-hour dramas will allow fans to take on the role of the Doctor, enter different universes and fight some new enemies.

Matt Smith, who plays the Doctor and Karen Gillan, who plays companion Amy, have provided voice-overs.

The first of the games, developed by UK game designer Sumo Digital, will be available for free download via the Doctor Who website in June.

The first episode of the new series of Doctor Who was broadcast on 3 April and was watched by more than eight million viewers, according to the BBC.
