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.

A new storyline has been developed especially for this new Doctor Who console game franchise, written in collaboration with the BBC Wales
