Doctor Who Roleplaying Game Today!
The Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space role-playing game by Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd was released a couple weeks ago in England, and I should finally get my hands on a copy today! I ordered the game through my LCS, which is getting it from Diamond Comics Distributors. Diamond has it listed on their shipping list for today! Hot dog!
I’ve posted about the game previously, but again I gotta say how impressed I am with the package they’ve put together for this game. First off, it’s a box set. How cool is that?!?! What game company has put out a decent RPG box set in years? Everyone just publishes hardbacks nowadays. Also, this box set is packed! Check out the video below done by my buddy The Acrobatic Flea. He posted this on his excellent blog, HeroPress, to demonstrate how nicely this box set was put together. It’s even got a hinged cover! Way to go Cubicle 7! Even if you don’t care for Doctor Who, you gotta admit this is a well-designed product.

Below is a list of the contents as you saw them in the video:
- Player’s Guide (86 pages)
- Gamemaster’s Guide (144 pages)
- Adventure Book (30 pages)
- Character sheets (including pre-generated characters for the series cast)
- Blank Character Sheets
- Gadget sheets
- Story Point Tokens
Upcoming supplements to the game include: Doctor Who Gamemaster’s Screen; Aliens and Creatures; and Defending the Earth (U.N.I.T. box set). Also, next summer they’ll release a Matt Smith/11th Doctor themed edition. It won’t be an all-new edition, mostly just updating the visuals and the branding.
Finally, I’ve heard a rumor that there is a credit to me and my playtesting group inside – Shag (and the Unique Geeks). I’m totally stoked about that! I got mentioned in an official Doctor Who publication! My life is now complete! 😉
