Red Button Adventure!
The BBC Press Office has released full details of the forthcoming interactive Doctor Who adventure, scheduled to follow The Christmas Invasion.
Attack of the Graske can be see by pressing the red button on the digital remote control for satellite, cable and digital terrestrial viewers, and features David Tennant as the Doctor and Jimmy Vee as The Graske.
The adventure has been written by Gareth Roberts and has been made in Cardiff, by New Media and BBC Wales:
In a series of challenges the viewer will be tested on all the skills necessary to keep the Universe safe â€“ you’ll even have a chance to fly the TARDIS!
One of the producers, Sophie Fante, says: “Attack of the Graske gives the viewer the unique opportunity to immerse themselves fully in the world of Doctor Who. We aimed to make the challenge with the same scope and feel of the main series and, in Attack of The Graske, the viewer finds themselves not only flying the TARDIS with the Doctor but fighting the Graske on the planet Griffoth and hunting him out in Victorian London.
“Filming was great fun because of the variety of locations within a relatively short shoot. The high point was creating an authentic Dickensian Christmas scene, complete with snow, in a small corner of Cardiff.”
Through a series of tests using the arrow keys on their digital remote control, viewers will be tested on observation, dexterity, memory and bravery as the epic story unfolds across time and space.
Participants will travel into the past and to a strange new world, battling a determined and evil foe.
Throughout the adventure, the Doctor will be on hand to give advice, encouragement, and even step in when things go wrong.
But don’t expect any favours â€“ he only takes the best.
It’s already better than Destiny of the Doctors…
