More Doctor Who: Adventure Games in 2011

BBC commissions second series of downloadable titles

The BBC confirms that its online Doctor Who: The Adventure Games will return in 2011 for a second 'series'.

The Episodes have enjoyed 1.6 million download requests across the first three episodes, according to The Beeb.


The fourth and final episode in this first series - to be released later this year - will take players to a whole new world as the Doctor and assistant Amy face 'one of executive producer and show-runner Steven Moffat's most original creations'.

Series two will once again be executive produced by the BBC Wales TV series team of Moffat, Piers Wenger, Beth Willis, along with Anwen Aspden (BBC Wales Interactive).

Like the first series, the new Doctor Who games are being created in conjunction with leading British developer Sumo Digital.

Matt Smith and Karen Gillan will reprise their virtual roles, providing full voice-overs and likenesses once again - and will also be joined by additional members of the Doctor Who cast.

"Given the success of the first series, we'd be daft not to recomission," says Simon Nelson, head of multiplatform in vision, BBC.

"But it's not just about the numbers; the feedback we've had has been overwhelmingly positive. Our audience has been introduced to a new form of drama - and, for many, these have been the first computer games they have downloaded. We've set new standards in audience participation - and we think we've really helped push the concept of families actively playing together. I can't wait to see what the team does next."
