Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock

See The Monsters Of Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock

BBC Worldwide has released a trailer for Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock, which highlights the enemies the good doctor will be up against in his new downloadable adventure.

The Eternity Clock is being developed by Supermassive Games, creators of Tumble, one of the few Move games worth buying. This new Doctor Who game looks to be a blend of action and platforming, and will debut on PS3 and Vita in March, followed by a later PC release. While the game promises to have puzzle solving and decision making that will affect the course of the game, you'll also face a wide variety of enemies, including Cybermen, Silurians, The Silence, and Daleks, all of which can be seen in the video below.

I haven't seen enough of Doctor Who to know the difference between a TARDIS and a telephone booth, but the trailer looks cool enough. Are fans of the series excited by what Supermassive Games is doing with the license?

  • Where are the Weeping Angels? :(
  • Mod
    "Are fans of the series excited by what Supermassive Games is doing with the license?" NO. I mean... a side-scrolling platformer... Of all the gameplay designs they could go with, they went with... ugh.... I'm still buying it though. I can only hope it's not terrible.
  • VERY excited! I hope it's a good platforming game. :) I think it's a type of gameplay that fits the Doctor. Why? He runs a LOT.
  • Video was terrible quality, game looks like it could be good though.

  • I like Dr. Who but I cant see this being very good.
  • I never saw the show. I heard it was really good. Apparently good enough to make a bad game. Irony
  • That looks... something. I like those gray-looking guys.

  • Better effects than the show itself.

  • I'm just excited to see Daleks.
  • Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Well there's still some time for these dudes to put some polish on this game, add some gameplay mechanics that aren't heavy handed, and maybe put a valuable amount of time into voice acting, story, and graphics.
  • Meh. I lost interest in the show when they got a new Doctor. The Moody impersonator was a much better Doctor Who IMO.
  • I'm interested. I like a good 2D Platformer, so if this turns out well, it'll be even better. I just hope they have enough gameplay mechanics to keep it interesting. I do like what I'm seeing of the story, though.

  • I don't know how I feel about this Doctor Who videogame. I guess I really won't know how I feel in till I play the game.

  • Jeepers Creepers!!  DOCTOR WHO ON A PLAYSTATION!!!!!  Now I'm excited for Vita!!

  • They look as lame here as they do in the show. The show sucks.
  • I was hoping for something more than a side scroller :(

    There's so much that could be done with the DW universe, just seems like they missed an opportunity by not putting in enough money.

    Still, better than releasing another top trumps game

  • The Silence in the article picture kind of look weird. When did they ever do that thing with their hands? Also, their hands look almost swollen.
  • I'm gonna' play the hell out of that!!!

  • God, I'm tired of this crap. I want a good Doctor Who game. Like an RPG. A gritty story, involving a bunch of major characters from the Doctor Who universe. Bring back people like Captain Jack, and maybe Rose Tyler for a portion. I'm talking a Mass Effect-quality story and graphics with fast-paced gameplay where The Doctor has a main mission, but you can go to different planets at different times to do side missions, get items, meet new people, etc. Why can't that exist, huh???
  • So...it's a co-op 2.5D platformer? That could be okay I guess. Personally, I'd wish for a more 3D action-adventure. Something with more puzzles, and better NPC/Partner AI and storytelling. Basically, something like Uncharted should be the base for all games based on tv shows/movies. What's with focusing on River Song over Amy Pond though? C'MON!

    I am glad BBC keeps trying to make games out of Doctor Who though. It's a fantastic property. The best sci-fi on television since Star Trek: The Next Generation (and leagues better than garbage like Battlestar Galactica). Just the premise of the show means that anything can, and frequently does, happen. It can go hard sci-fi, it can turn into an adventure, or it can be horror. And it's all held together by fantastic, charming british/irish actors like David Tennant and Matt Smith.

    Really wish the game here would feature the Blind Angels though, but at least it has the Cybermen though. They're they reason I started watching Doctor Who; those are some cool looking robots (cyborgs, whatever).
