Doctor Who Logo 'The Gunpowder Plot'

The Doctor and Guy Fawkes

“Remember, remember the fifth of November, for gunpowder, treason and plot. I see no reason why gunpowder, treason should ever be forgot.”

The TARDIS lands in London, 1605, encountering a group of men who are plotting to assassinate the Head of State. The Doctor, Amy and Rory realise they are at a pivotal point in time but so are two alien races, the Sontarans and the Rutans, both of which are more than happy to change history to suit their own ends...

'The Gunpowder Plot' will be the most advanced of the Adventure Games so far. Gamers will be able to play as the Doctor, Amy and Rory, exploring the immersive environments of this historic period. The adventure will feature multi-linear gameplay, even more sophisticated puzzles, and a complex lighting system specifically designed to recreate the atmosphere of 17th Century London. And for the very first time, the introduction of portal technology will enable gamers to experience for themselves that the TARDIS really is bigger on the inside...

The game will also be accompanied by an online resource pack with downloadable assets to support History and Literature lessons in schools, via BBC Learning

*This downloadable adventure game was available free for PC and Mac users from the official BBC 'Doctor Who' website

*Time-placing: the TARDIS study contains several objects relating to adventures in the second half of Season 32, such as the Time Glass from ‘The Girl Who Waited’, so I’m choosing to place this story before ‘The God Complex’
