New Doctor Who games to celebrate the show's 50th anniversary

As the world’s favourite Time Lord celebrates fifty years on TV screens, innovative games company, Winning Moves UK, is releasing a range of licensed games to help celebrate Doctor Who’s landmark half-century.

Fans of the hit BBC sci-fi drama can test their time travelling knowledge with a brand new anniversary edition of Trivial Pursuit, indulge in strategic battles between five Dalek armies in a specially reworked version of classic board game, Risk, and enjoy six exclusive new Top Trumps packs in a Doctor Who edition of Top Trumps Turbo. There’s also a 1000-piece collector’s jigsaw which has been commissioned to mark the 50th Anniversary.

Here’s a quick rundown of them again, with a few thoughts:

  • Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Trivial Pursuit (RRP £9.99, ages 12+, available from September 2013) – a Doctor Who-themed version of the popular quiz game
  • Doctor Who Risk (RRP £34.99, ages 10+, available from October 2013) – a Doctor Who strategy game! At last!
  • Top Trumps Turbo: Doctor Who (RRP £24.99, ages 6+, available from September 2013) – after the digital Top Trumps title of 2007, we’ve got high hopes for this one…
  • Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Jigsaw (RRP £12.99, ages 10+, available from August 2013) – a 1000 piece jigsaw of Van Gogh’s painting of the TARDIS’ destruction.

The new Doctor Who licensed games will be available to buy on the High Street from a wide range of retailers including WH Smith, Toys R Us, Waterstones, Tesco, Asda, and John Lewis and widely available online. All products are also available to buy at and

We’ll be featuring each of these exciting new releases in more detail later in the week.
