Matt’s Masterful Motion Capture

We’re often hearing about how dedicated Doctor Who star Matt Smith is – well if you didn’t believe it before, take a look at this video which includes footage of the actor in full motion capture suit get-up to create realistic cut-scenes for the forthcoming PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and Windows game, The Eternity Clock.

Featuring the voice of Alex Kingston as River Song, the game puts the player in control of the time travellers as they unravel a centuries-wide mystery.

Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock is released tomorrow (May 23rd) on the PlayStation Network and you can purchase the PlayStation 3 version in physical from all good retail shops from the 25th. The PS3 version is currently listed on Amazon. We’ll have details on the PC version as soon as they become available.

    Actually it’s listed at a few places, but Amazon is the cheapest. You should also be aware Amazon told us quantities are so “extremely limited” (i.e. the comapny’s probably made only a few thousand copies) for the PS3, they probably can’t fulfil every pre-order.

    We’ve preordered at hmvas well, though they are also selling through , gamestop and Please not prices and stock level may vary at each.

    • Hi Simon

      Linking works perfectly if you enter the code correctly :). If it was a WordPress issue, you wouldn’t be able to navigate the site ;).

      I’ve fixed the links for you. Just a quick note – I have a long standing unresolved customer service issue with and therefore will not link to them.
