    Role Playing in the Doctor Who Universe.

    The Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith, Dr Harry Sullivan and Nigel the scaffolder knee-wrencher rushed down the corridor. Behind them, the hideous Bug Eye Monster crackled in pain and began to lumber after them.

    Unfortunately after turning the door, the fleeing group find a large foreboding door appearing in front of them.

    Doctor, can you open it?” asked Harry.
    Why cant you?” threw back an irritated Doctor.
    I am a doctor, not a locksmith” was Harry’s reply, earning him a filthy look from the Timelord.
    Hurry Doctor!” cried an alarmed Sarah Jane, “The monster is getting closer!”

    What happens next? Does the Bug Eyed Monster kill all the people, or will the Doctor, Sarah Jane or Nigel think of something (after all, Harry will not!).

    Bad news, that decision is up to you and your friends!

     Timelord Role Playing Game  View Printable Version

    DW ReviewsThis is a quick and dirty review of the free Doctor Who Roleplaying game Timelord.

    The best (and quite snazzy) website for the game is:

    For those who dont know, Timelord is written by Ian Marsh and Peter Darvill-Evens
    and was origionally published in 1991 by Virgin Publishing. It has been released by the authors who regained the rights in 1996.

    Never saw this game before, but found it on the net while searchig for Doctor Who RPG games. If you think this is a rebadged game from FASA (based on the Star Trek system), think again (it supprised me, and I am an old school gamer who never even HEARD of this game until I googled for Doctor Who RPG games)

    This game is designed for people who are new to Role Playing, and contains a wealth of information on all the TV series Doctors up to the eigth, as well as ther companions and many of the Doctor's enemies

    This is a simple and elegent RPG system, with a 2 dice system with its own quirk. All RPG games need randomness to add that uncertanty into the narrative between players, and Timelord uses a modified 2 six sided dice system )or 2d6 in gamer speak).

     DVD Review: Ghost Light  View Printable Version

    The Sylvester McCoy story Ghost Light were among the last batch of Doctor Who DVDs released in the US (region 1, NTSC). The three episode story comes off as a very confusing tale. Have you ever had a dream in which events and situations are not grounded in any logic, yet in the dream you accept them anyway? This may best sum up this story. At least it seems like the characters accept everything in this story without exception no matter how off-key and bizarre it may be.
