The Doctor and the Dalek: Epic New Game Launches Today!

Join the Doctor, voiced by Peter Capaldi, in a brilliant new Doctor Who game that’s just launched on the CBBC website!

The Doctor and the Dalek is a thrilling new game voiced by Peter Capaldi and Nicholas Briggs, the voice of the Cybermen and Daleks. It’s an absolutely epic ride as the game whisks you from a Cyber-ship in deep space to the legendary tombs of Telos and even to Sontar, homeworld of the Sontarans and never before seen on TV! The clip above shows you it’s action all the way as the Time Lord teams up with one of his old enemies in a dangerous mission into the unknown…

Gameplay allows you to take control of the Dalek. Succeed with the challenges thrown your way and you’ll “power up” its abilities but watch out – the game gets harder as you progress with the adventure…

The Doctor and the Dalek was written by Phil Ford (Into the Dalek, The Sarah Jane Adventures, Wizards vs Aliens) and produced by BBC Wales and Somethin’ Else in association with BBC Future Media. In other words, it’s full of the excitement and humour that you expect from any Doctor Who adventure.

In addition to joining the Doctor, fighting monsters and crashing through the cosmos, the game will give you a useful head start with computer coding, so as you battle Cybermen you’ll be improving your cyber skills!

Check out a gallery of images from the game or read the press release issued earlier this week. And don’t forget: it’s available right now, exclusively on the CBBC site.

Play The Doctor and the Dalek now!

BBC to Launch ‘The Doctor and the Dalek’ Game for Kids

BBC - Doctor Who - Mon, 10/20/2014 - 3:49am

A brand new game will introduce computing skills to children as they help the Doctor on his latest adventure.

The BBC has today announced The Doctor and the Dalek, a new online game for CBBC audiences voiced by Peter Capaldi. The game sees the newly regenerated Twelfth Doctor thrown into a dangerous quest with his most devious of enemies in a new, standalone, story from Doctor Who and Wizards vs Aliens TV writer, Phil Ford.

The Doctor and the Dalek – which has been specially released to be part of the BBC's Make it Digital initiative to inspire a new generation to get creative with coding, digital technology and programming – will be available freely at bbc.co.uk/cbbc from Wednesday 22nd October.

The Doctor and the Dalek

Players join the action as the TARDIS materialises amidst a deadly pursuit through space – a Dalek Saucer bearing down on a Cyber-ship. But from that Cyber-ship emanates a distress call – from a Dalek! On freeing the battered Dalek from his Cybermen captors, the Doctor finds himself taking his new unlikely ally on a mission to save all of creation from destruction at the hands of his greatest enemies.

But why would a Dalek turn to its mortal foe for help? To find out, join the Doctor and the Dalek in a new adventure spanning the Sontar homeworld and its vile Clone Chambers, which have never been shown on-screen before, as well as reintroducing the icy Cyber-tombs of Telos – last seen in classic Doctor Who episodes.

The Doctor said: "Oi! Short and not-very-old one! I need your help - I’ve got a Dalek and we’ve got a mission to save the universe. So get on over to the CBBC website, and play The Doctor and the Dalek while there’s still a universe left! Come on! Chop chop! Make it Digital on the BBC."

Introducing computing skills

A range of puzzles are featured throughout the game, where players must take control of the Dalek and programme it to “power up” its ability to perform a range of tasks, such as flying. Each puzzle unlocks an achievement that helps the Doctor build the Dalek back to full strength, ensuring it can take on increasingly difficult challenges as the game progresses.

The puzzles are linked to the new computing curriculum and are designed to allow children across the UK to pick up core programming principles as they play. Several key stage 2 and 3 curriculum points – such as combining instructions to accomplish a given goal, using variables to alter behaviour, repetition and loops, and logical reasoning – are seamlessly integrated into the gameplay and, most importantly for children, are intuitive and fun.

Resources accompanying the game will be available from BBC Learning at bbc.co.uk/schoolscomputing for teachers and parents to help children get the most out of the game. These will provide links to other resources available from across the BBC and third parties, enabling children and teachers to take their learning journeys further.

Danny Cohen, BBC Director of Television, said: “The Doctor and the Dalek is a brand new Doctor Who story and a fantastic game, voiced by the wonderful Peter Capaldi. It’s an excellent example of how a hugely popular BBC show can give fans something extra, whilst also introducing wider audiences to increasingly important skills, such as coding and programming.”

Sinéad Rocks, Head of BBC Learning, said: “We’re really excited about the launch of The Doctor and the Dalek as not only is it a really entertaining platform game for kids to play but it’s also a great introduction to some key principles of computer programing. Every puzzle has a strong link to the KS2 or KS3 computer science curriculum. So we think it’s going to be a really valuable tool for students, parents and teachers.”

The Doctor and the Dalek was commissioned by BBC Learning, developed and produced by BBC Wales and Somethin’ Else in association with BBC Future Media.
