Tuesday 22nd June 2010: An abandoned Arctic research centre… an ancient relic… an off-screen terror – the classic ingredients of a Doctor Who episode. Only this time you are the Doctor.
Blood of the Cybermen has been executively produced by Steven Moffat, stars Matt Smith and Karen Gillan, and has been written by Phil Ford. Matt Smith and Karen Gillan have been digitally recreated in-game, and have provided full voice-overs. Music has been provided by TV series’ composer Murray Gold. An additional cast will portray original characters and classic enemies.
“Blood of the Cybermen is classic Who,” says its writer Phil Ford (who also co~wrote The Waters of Mars and episodes for The Sarah Jane Adventures). “From the intriguing title, through the pre-credits intro to the mystery surrounding the Arctic base, this is everything you expect from a TV episode – only this time you control the action. It’s an epic story, and one we could only tell in a computer game. We’ve ambitious sets, a thrill-a-minute narrative, and we re-introduce a Doctor Who adversary not seen since the Tom Baker era.”*
The BBC have announced that the second episode of The Adventure Games will be available to download this Saturday immediately after the series finale, The Big Bang. Titled Blood of the Cybermen, it sees the return of the Cybermen and a villain not seen since Tom Baker was in charge of the TARDIS.
