Find the Shadows of the Vashta Nerada!

From where I’m sitting, you’re busy reading this – when you should have headed over to the BBC’s Official Doctor Who site to download Shadows of the Vashta Nerada!

That’s right, the Christmas gift from the Doctor Who website is available four days early, and you can download and play it today. Featuring the voices of Matt Smith and Karen Gillan, Shadows of the Vashta Nerada is the final “episode” of the series of PC and Mac games made available under the Doctor Who: The Adventure Games title and designed and developed by Sumo Digital.

The Vashta Nerada is the name given to the cannibalistic shadow dwellers that we first encountered in Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead, back in 2008, and may or may not play a part in the arc of the 2011 series…

Written by Phil Ford (Waters Of Mars, City of the Daleks), Shadows of the Vashta Nerada sees the Doctor and Amy (voiced by Matt Smith and Karen Gillan) arrive in an aquatic sea-bed colony called Poseidon and features a breath-taking plot which surrounds a real-world conspiracy – and, of course, takes place at Christmas!

So by now, you should have stopped reading and hit the link to download Shadows of the Vashta Nerada!
