Doctor Who game in the works, Danger Mouse game still non-existent

This fansite of David Tennant — the latest in a long string of literal and metaphorical incarnations of Doctor Who — has word that a game based on the Who license will be coming to ” PC, PS2, DS and Mobile”. Here’s the blurb straight from the horse’s … website:

Top Trumps have revealed their plans for a Doctor Who video game to be released in time for Christmas 2007.It is thought it will be available on PC, PS2, DS and Mobile.An advert for the game appears in the new Doctor Who Top Trumps card pack. We will have more details as we get them.You can buy the new Doctor Who Top Trumps in our shop here.

With the long-awaited success of the Doctor here in the States, it’s no surprise that a video game would be churned out based on the IP, but by that same logic, the odds of it being worthwhile are incredibly low. It’s been pointed out time and time again that games based on any IP other than those created specifically for games will ultimately suck, and in a game based on a television series that relies almost entirely on the quirky personalities of its characters and ironically outdated special effects, the suck is almost assured.

No word on exactly where this title is going to be released, but now that the Doctor is a phenomenon on this side of The Pond as well, we’re going to assume it will be hitting US shores, as well as those of Jolly Ole’ England.
