Doctor Who: 10 Things The 2021 Video Game NEEDS To Be Great

If all thirteen Doctors aren't playable, we riot.


Doctor Who and video games haven't had the best of relationships. Whereas other iconic franchises like Harry Potter, Batman, The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars have all had a few great outings over the years, there's just a big black void of lacklustre nothingness if you're searching for a truly awesome Doctor Who video game.

And so, with the news that UK-based developer Maze Theory is entering the Whoniverse with an Xbox, PlayStation, PC and Switch game in early 2021, there are plenty of reasons to be apprehensive, but there are also reasons to be hopeful too.

Maze Theory recently put out Doctor Who: The Edge of Time, a decent VR experience that showed they have the potential to do something special within this universe - so fingers crossed that their incoming 2021 title will be when this potential is realized.

Since we don't know anything about the game yet, now is the perfect time to speculate on what we'd like to see, so that's exactly what we're going to do! We don't expect all of the following ideas to actually make the cut, but if we were building our dream, ideal Doctor Who video game, here are some things we'd include to make it great.
