Free Classic Doctor Who Games Now Online!

If you’re feeling sad about the news of Doctor Who: Worlds in Time‘s demise why not journey back in to a time when life was simpler, there were only four TV channels to choose from and ‘mobile gaming’ meant a good game of British Bulldogs or ‘three and you’re in’?

Doctor Who games from the 1980s and 1990s can now be downloaded courtesy of the TOSEC project (The Old School Emulation Centre). If you download a Spectrum emulator you can enjoy The Key to Time, or with the Commodore 64 version you get stuck into Doctor Who and the Mines of Terror and Dalek Attack, all free of charge. Spectrum and Commodore 64 are names to get all dreamily nostalgic about if you’re over 35 or so. For others, probably not so much.

What do you think? A fun bit of retro game play? Or is gaming all about the future?

Incidentally, we’ll be telling you a bit more about Kasterborous Magazine #2 later today, an issue dedicated to Doctor Who video games! Stay tuned…

About the Author

Jonathan remembers catching Tony Hughes's Doctor in BBC Schools Maths show when he was off school in 1975. This more than made up for having chickenpox. Something of an old hand by this time, he had learned from The Doctor Who Monster Book that there were other Doctors and adventures to discover - an exciting prospect for a five year old.
