Google is joining the rest of the known universe in celebrating Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary today, by deploying one of their famous Google Doodles across the top of its homepage. And it’s a playable video game in which your Doctor character regenerates into his next incarnation whenever a Dalek exterminates him in his quest to assemble the Google logo!

The Guardian talks with the Doodle designer, who reveals it’s his first attempt at game design.
