The company will produce a starter game as well as a hardback book detailing instructions for how to defeat Doctor Who‘s foes.There will be a new game system devised to fit into the Doctor Who universe and to allow the existing characters to work to the best effect. John Stallard, managing director or Warlord Games, said that he expects Cybermen and Daleks to be the most popular figurines.“You can’t beat a Dalek,” he added.
Work started recently on the figurines and Mr Stallard said that he hopes the first games should be ready in a few months. They have reportedly started sculpting the first models, commencing with ‘the bad guys’ and once these have been approved by the BBC they can start on the figures of all 12 Doctors confirmed for the set.
There has already been much speculation about the storyline which will surround the tabletop version of Doctor Who. Will there be a Time War element? With the license spanning both the entire Classic series and the new series since 2005, will UNIT make an appearance? Will some of the other war based races like the Sontarans feature heavily?

Warlord + Dr Who = WHAT?! A very unexpected turn of events. I’m not surprised that there will be a Dr Who game even if Warlord wouldn’t be my first choice, it does sound…

So the BBC have released a new trailer for Doctor Who and there are a couple of shots of Daleks within it. Now if you look carefully, not only can you see the Special Weapon Dalek, but there are also early era Daleks like those encountered by the first Doctor. The Special Weapon Dalek was […]
Are these the droids you are looking for?
New Doctor Who trailer and series 9 starts September 19th 2015. Well there’s a lot in that trailer, not sure if I understand it all, but I did recognise the Daleks, Missy and a Zygon. Looking good.

I picked up Dave and drove over to Mel’s and swapped cars and Mel kindly drove us all to Sheffield. I managed to get some great bargains which I’ll post about later, and all in all we enjoyed ourselves. I thought the show was a lot quieter than I’d see…
Well what do we have here, the Doctor in Lego. Oh and K9 and a TARDIS. Okay so not a proper set (just yet), but for the forthcoming Lego Dimensions console game. The game uses “real” Lego which are then “brought” into the game. There is a real mix of brands, for example the […]
Alignment is one of those weird game mechanics that can be viewed as both a hindrance and an aid. Because of this it is often the victim of a love hate type of relationship among players that can cause some heated disagreements. If they could apply their thoughts to its use they would not […]

Let’s go back to 1979 to see John Cleese cameo in the City of Death episode starring Tom Baker. Exquisite.
I missed this when it first came to the fore. Wholock: in which Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock and Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor appeared to meet in a video seamlessly cut together from the shows. This is how some of the VFX were done.
In this session on creating character Matt talks about the BIG 3, or if you prefer the influences that help your character make decisions. I’ve been having a lot of fun with this and I hope you have been too.

Here is another of the metal miniatures from Harlequin Miniatures. This is Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart of UNIT. Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart was one of the founders of UNIT and commander of its UK operations. I painted his uniform with Flames of War English Uniform 921. Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart was born in Scotland, according to dialogue in Terror of […]
As well as my Bolt Action Partisans, I am in the process of building a Commando team to fight alongside them. I am also going to use them as UNIT troops for some Doctor Who scenarios that I have been thinking about. As well as the plastic boxed set I also have a couple of […]

The Role of Character What does it mean to have character? If you are like most players you will start defining your path by picking your race and rolling some stats. Then you pick a class and maybe an alignment, and then you gear up for adventure. For many that’s all there is to creating […]
Those then weeks have flown by! The eight season of Doctor Who (new `reckoning) featured a new Doctor, a new Opening, and the same Companion… Peter Capaldi took the mantle from Matt Smith, and while I never was a fan of the Smith incarnati…
I have managed to read all of the rules and play two quick games of Doctor Who Adventures in Time and Space. I haven’t rolled up a character yet, but I’m ready to write my review of the game. I picked up the rules at Origins and I’m glad I did. The limited edition book […]
Matt Takes a look at the Time Traveller’s companion for Doctor Who from Cubicle 7. He chats about the Tardis – sort of there is like 50 pages on the machine. He shares with you what he found to be fundamental about book with out spoiling the contents. Check back […]
OK, after a period of mojo recovery, I’ve been busy – sadly some of that was a build up, review, tear down kind of busy, but the corrections (note the plural there) were worthwhile. The bridge slots on nicely and will lead to something I haven’t …
I’m a newcomer to all things Doctor Who. While Whovians were celebrating the 50th Anniversary with the excellent The Day of the Doctor on November 23, 2013, I was downloading and watching three other vids – firstly I watched An…
