The lights are on
If you think that Trekkies and Star Wars fans are the kings of the sci-fi dorks, you obviously haven't heard of Doctor Who, the long-running BBC series that's been enjoying a renaissance in the last decade or so. The TV show already spawned a successful batch of free-for-download adventure games, but now the good doctor is getting a bit more ambitious.BBC Worldwide has announced that the California-based game developer Three Rings is working on a free-to-play MMO based on the Doctor Who property.“Doctor Who: Worlds in Time will be a free-to-play multiplayer online game that invites players to save the universe by using their wits to solve time-bending puzzles and pulse-pounding challenges," said BBC Worldwide's EVP of digital entertainment Robert Nashak.

ummm, hmmm, I don't know what to say
That is seriously a neat concept. If they do it right it could be semi-successful. I've only watched tid-bits of the show, but it seems interesting enough that it could just work as and MMO. I guess we'll see.
So long as you can play as a Dalek. That would be epic.
There are so many different ways this could end up. Hopefully it'll be good.
When will it be realesead
I'll wait to hear more. I LOVE The Doctor, but I don't think Three Rings will be able to pull it off
Cool news.It would be great if you could play as multiple class' or as all the doctors. Can't wait to hear more news about this project.
Only one word can sum this up:
Just pick sides. Oh! That's a good question. Can we pick sides in this game? Can't wait to find out.
I'm not really sure what to say on this one.
And it is a MMO based around problem solving instead of non-stop grinding.
The first four season were incredible. best show ever. im not sure about this though
The Brits seem to like Science Fiction more than Americans do. Or at least more culturally acceptable.
EXTERMINATE EXTERMINATE EXTERMINATE!
Also, its about *** time it got its own MMO, because I want to be a time lord.
