Welcome everyone to the third installment of our time-traveling, space-warping round up of all the news we could find about the world’s most popular Timelord, Doctor Who. And there’s a ton of news to get through because, remember: this article is bigger on the inside.
ITEM! Doctor Who: The Video Game?
Are you ready to dip fishsticks into custard with your Wii? We hope so, as next year sees the release of “Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock” for PS3 and Playstation Vita. There’s scant information in the release trailer above, but Matt Smith and Alex Kingston (River Song) will both be providing voices and motion capture for the game.
Here’s what the BBC has to say: “Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock will immerse gamers in the universe of Doctor Who, allowing them to take on the role of the Doctor and River Song as they travel across time and space to save the Earth. Gamers must learn to master the complexities of time travel with exceptional time based game play, changes made in one time will impact another creating multiple possibilities and challenging players to solve puzzles across the centuries.”

LOST! Doctor Who Episodes Found in Town Fair
In case you missed our report earlier this week, two “lost” Doctor Who episodes were found in a town fair in the UK, before being taken back by the BBC.

WINTER IS COMING: There’s No Dalek Like Snow Dalek
This picture is via comic writer Gail Simone’s Tumblr account. For a sense of context, Simone has gone fro mercilessly making fun of Doctor Who, for months, to actually watching the episodes, to now not shutting up about Daleks. Which is kind of awesome.
