The BBC have revealed details of the 1st instalment in the second series of the Doctor Who Adventures Games, which is set in 1605 and puts a new sci-fi and educational slant on the well-known story of Guy Fawkes (at least to everyone in the UK) with the title of ‘The Gunpowder Plot’, as the Eleventh Doctor, Amy and Rory are confronted with one of the Time Lord’s oldest enemies (first seen in a medieval-set Third Doctor story – hint hint).
The incredible cast includes Ralf Little (The Royle Family), Phil Daniels (Quadrophenia, EastEnders),Dan Starkey (A Good Man Goes to War) and CBBC's Chris Johnson... as well as one of the UK's best-known actresses, whose identity we'll reveal shortly!
Doctor Who: The Gunpowder Plot is set in 1605. Guy Fawkes and his gang are hell bent on blowing up the Houses of Parliament and the Doctor becomes embroiled in their scheme when it emerges he's not the only alien in town... Old monsters return and new threats must be faced... By you, playing as one of the TARDIS time travellers!
The Doctor Who Adventure Games ‘The Gunpowder Plot’ is released on Monday 31st October for FREE to UK residents. It will, presumably become available to those overseas at a slightly later date with a fee (since overseas customers don’t pay the UK licence fee).
