Doctor Who Games Competition
BBC Blast are running a Doctor Who Games Competition – in search of creators for Doctor Who games!
The Doctor Who Games Competition from BBC Blast is aimed at aspiring games creators aged 13â€“19 years old.
Will the Cybermen take over the Earth? The story’s up to you! Send us a game idea with a Doctor Who theme – characters, scenes, and a story – and you could win some great prizes. Enter now and the winner will take part in a master-class with the BBC Doctor Who and Blast teams to help turn their idea into a reality.

Sounds a fantastic opportunity – best of luck to all entrants!
Kylie rumours: She’s still coming in July, but isn’t playing a Cyberwoman:
Kylie has already laughed off claims that she is getting ready to play an evil cyberwoman â€“ the mortal enemy of David Tennantâ€™s Doctor.
Last night, a show insider told us: “Kylie will be coming to Cardiff sometime next month. Everything has been arranged, a hotel has been booked and everyone on the set is excited about it.”
If you’ve been paying attention to Doctor Who Series 3, you should be able to cope with a CBBC Newsround quiz about the character. There’s only seven questions, and I got them all correct first time!
The success of Blink – which every man and his dog have been talking to me about this week – was reflected in a recent article in The Scotsman
It’s partly thanks to the lovely Carey Mulligan, who stars as a sparky young woman called Sally Sparrow who would make the perfect new TARDIS companion except… a script by Steven Moffat (based on a story in the 2005 Doctor Who Annual, fact fans)… manages to also create spooky new villains based on a traditional playground game.
If the nation’s children aren’t playing at Blink by next week, I’ll eat my sonic screwdriver.
Well, it was a rather excellent, spooky, chilling episode. I’m hoping my nana knits a jumper in commemoration of it, and as luck would have it, she could buy the latest copy of Cross Stitcher magazine (#189, Â£3.60 from all good newsagents), which – reports SFX – features David Tennant!
The mag’s regular Stitch a Star feature enables readers to re-create their own lifelike portrait in cross-stitch. Yes, that’s right. Get your needles out! Tennant joins a number of other telly faves in the Stitch a Star hall of fame including fellow Time Lord Christopher Eccleston, X-Files dude David Duchovny and Star Trek’s Leonard Nimoy.
This would, I guess, be a stitch in time…
