The Doctor’s Vita
Doctor Who in the 21st century is a very different creature to its original incarnation from the 1960’s-1980’s. Where the show used to fantasize and tantalize viewers with concepts of futuristic technology and far-flung ideas it can now work with these technologies to bring Doctor Who fans worldwide a media rich Doctor for the modern age.
Downloads, streaming websites and Wi-Fi clouds now ensure that the Last of the Time Lords can be with you anywhere you go to share the adventure that he’s having.
Or, if you want more of a “hands on” involvement, you can wait for two months until the launch of Sony’s new handheld console, PlayStation Vita, which will be ready to receive a digital download of the new HD Doctor Who games, The Eternity Clock. Details are sparse about the game at the moment; all we do know is that it will feature the Eleventh Doctor and River Song as voiced by Matt Smith and Alex Kingston. We now also know that there will be a strong Doctor Who presence at the launch of the new console!
The game will also be released on PS3 and PC and is looking like a promising entry into the Doctor Who computer game, as it should be a full on action adventure to explore the entire universe in (we hope)! And you’ll be able to do this on the train, the bus, in the car or on a break from work if you choose the Vita version of the game. That’s an HD Doctor Who adventure for you to get involved in-in the palm of your hand!
