Doctor Who on Xbox 360!

Doctor Who has hit the Xbox 360! Not quite in the way fans might want, however. While there are no games set to be announced (as far as we’re aware) fans logging into Xbox LIVE this weekend will be able to catch promotional content for the new series of Doctor Who!

There is plenty of content in there too, split into three sections.

The first has four streaming videos.  They are:

1) New Season Trailer (The recent BBCA trailer)
2) New Season Extended Trailer (The one the BBC ran on Dec 25th)
3) Behind the scenes of the new season (Same recent bts video)
4) Exclusive Prequel to Season Premiere (Same prequel we saw)

In the second, there’s also a link to download previous episodes of the show (all the stuff from 2005 onwards).

Finally, there’s some downloadable stuff.  There’s a Doctor Who theme for the Xbox 360 with four pictures (the theme is not a premium theme).  There’s also a profile picture pack, with several pictures you can use in your profile as a gamer pic.  They are:  River Song, the Doctor Who logo, the TARDIS, sonic screwdriver, Amy, Rory, the Doctor, & the BBCA logo.

If I were you guys, I’d download this soon.  A lot of times, these promo packs for something like a TV premiere tend to disappear after the event happens.  No idea how long this will be up.  Also, since it’s heavily promoting BBC America, I’m going to guess it will only be available in the US.

However, I noticed there is also a Torchwood: Children of Earth theme still available in the marketplace, too.  All free.  Still I wouldn’t wait.  Go grab this stuff now.

    Just had a look on my xbox live and i can’t find anything to do with Doctor Who anywhere.

    • Looks like it is a US only thing, as suggested in the article by Joe. Sadly as my 360 RROD’d out of warranty I can’t check :(

        if you have not found it yet ….under the ” B ” section. It’s listed as BBC Doctor Who.

    Here’s a direct link to it on the Xbox Marketplace.

    I wonder if you can get to it that way.
