Return to Earth Plot Revealed!

Doctor Who Return to Earth - Nintendo WiiAs you may be aware (or as you may not) a brand new Doctor Who game is being released on the Nintendo Wii this month. To be specific, 29th October 2010. And with that in mind, not an awful lot has been revealed about the games plot – until now that is.

This reporter will be the first to admit that it looked like Return to Earth was simply going to be the first two Doctor Who Adventure Games (City of the Daleks and Blood of the Cybermen) combined in a multipack. But as the freshly revealed plot tells you, this is a whole new game. reveals:

“In Doctor Who – Return to Earth, the Doctor and Amy help the SS Lucy Gray to return home to Earth, unravelling a Cyber Plot and preventing the Daleks from retrieving a lost Time Axis along the way. The Doctor and Amy arrive on a human colony ship returning to Earth after it was rendered uninhabitable by solar flares. Without provocation they are attacked by the ship’s maintenance robots and become separated in the struggle.

The Doctor is eventually led to the ship’s Head Quarters, where he discovers a Cyber Leader has connected himself to the ships AI and is blackmailing it into doing his bidding, or else he’ll kill the crew. Meanwhile the Cybermen that were hiding in the ship ambush Amy and chase her out into space.”

So with that in mind, it looks like the game is set around the stories The Ark in Space and The Sontaran Experiment. Could we see a fleeting cameo of the Wirrn or the Sontarans in Return to Earth? Or even the Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith and Harry? Probably not, but you’ll have to go out and buy the game to find out!

Doctor Who: Return to Earth will be available to buy from 29th October 2010.
