Doctor Who‘s exploits in the video game world have often left fans and gamers cold.
Despite the success of other franchises (think Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, and many others) in the video game arena, Doctor Who‘s main hits have been a pinball machine and an appearance in Lego: Dimensions.
And yet, Doctor Who has spawned an incredible 18 official, dedicated titles. One of these, The Eternity Clock, starred the voices of Matt Smith and Alex Kingston. Released in 2012, the game was developed by Supermassive Games, who were riding high on their success with the LittleBigPlanet series.
It had been intended as part of a series, but as we now know, the game – released on PC, Sony PlayStation 3, and Sony PSP – was left as a standalone title following poor reviews and sales.
Last year, Christian Cawley spoke with the game’s writer, David Bailey (working under the name “David Bryher”), to recall his time on the project. This week’s podcast features both that chat, and a rerun of our 2012 conversation with BBC Worldwide’s Simon Harris during the launch of Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock.
