Weâ€™re not sure if a Dr. Who game is a good idea. Obviously itâ€™ll sell loads and there are plenty of enemies for the developers to choose from, but the Doctor himself isnâ€™t a superhero – heâ€™s just a chap with a vast knowledge of the universe. And a glowing screwdriver. Weâ€™ll still buy it if it has Billy Piper instead of Catherine Tate though.
A few years back BBC Multimedia reportedly canned their spy-based Spooks game in favour of an adventure starring the doctor, but presumably it never got off the drawing board. Now according to a pack of Top Trumps – yes, really – Eidos have the rights and UK-based Ironstone Partners are developing it for PlayStation 2, DS and PC.
Now hereâ€™s the twist: it appears that itâ€™ll be another video game incarnation of Top Trumps instead of some shoddy third person affair. The fact that the only game Ironstone Partners have worked on is the upcoming Top Trumps: Horror and Predators pretty much backs this up.
