The Gunpowder Plot Preview!

Missing Doctor Who already? Well, your next fix isn’t as far away as you may think!. Coming out at the end of October is the newest episode in the Doctor Who: The Adventure Games series, The Gunpowder Plot.

Featuring Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill as The Doctor, Amy and Rory, this exciting new tale finds the TARDIS team in London in 1605 and fully caught up in the schemes of the infamous Guy Fawkes played by Ralf Little. There might also be the odd returning enemy thrown into events as well…

This is the fifth adventure game to be released through the BBC’s official Doctor Who website and promises to be bigger and bolder than any game released before it.

Joining the cast is Phil Daniels (EastEnders) and Dan Starkey who has played various Sontarans in Doctor Who since 2008.

Like the stories before it, The Gunpowder Plot will be a mix of action and puzzle sequences with full voice acting and some top rate animation as well. Coming out at the end of October means that there is only one month for the rest 2011 where we don’t get to experience bran new adventures with the Eleventh Doctor and his friends, how about that?!

You’ll be able to download the game free of charge from the official Doctor Who website very soon (and we expect international availability will mirror that of previous releases) but in the meantime, check out this exclusive preview that includes some wonderful concept artwork for you to drool over.
