whoA roleplaying game based on the hit British sci-fi series Doctor Who will hit hobby stores this fall.

Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space will be available in October. Published by Cubicle 7, the release is a deluxe box set that contains a 144-page Gamemaster’s Guide, an 86-page Player’s Guide, a 30-page Adventures Book, a four-page Quick Start Guide, pregenerated character sheets, blank character sheets, gadget sheets, tokens and dice.

Hopefully, like the Doctor’s TARDIS, the box will be both indestructible and bigger on the inside than it is on the outside — because it will set you back $59.95.

Come to think of it, why isn’t the “deluxe” packaging in the shape of a British police call box, also like the TARDIS?

This is the third official tabletop RPG based on Doctor Who: FASA published one in the ’80s and Virgin in the ’90s. The new game naturally focuses on the 2005 relaunch of the classic series that ran from 1963-89. But with 45 years of accumulated lore from TV episodes, original novels and plays and two spinoffs to date, there is plenty of material to support a full range of gaming supplements — if the market is there for them.

Now, when is somebody going to get around to making a decent video game based on Doctor Who?

  • The deluxe box is too pricey for my wallet! It sounds like a great game, but I’d prefer the video game. If you want to read my first and recently released novel, Long Journey to Rneadal. This exciting tale is a romantic action adventure in space and is more about the characters than the technology.
