From March 27, Doctor Who will come to life like never before in the virtual world of PlayStation Home – offering more than 31 million gamers the chance to interact with iconic elements, environments and costumes from the series.
You can deck yourself out in the Eleventh Doctor’s classic tweed jacket and bowtie outfit, and even accessorise with your very own Sonic Screwdriver. For prospective companions, there’s River Song’s catsuit, complete with PDA accessory – but, please don’t peek at her diary. If you fancy being an alien, you can become a prehistoric Silurian or suit up as an ominous Silent. You can even acquire a Cybermat as a companion that will follow you around PlayStation Home (nanovirus – fortunately - not included).
No Doctor Who experience would be complete without the TARDIS, which will be available as both a private estate and clubhouse where you can join your fellow fans and explore the wonders of the TARDIS – and trust us, it’s BIG.

The expansive TARDIS private space and clubhouse is unlike anything Home fans have seen before and comes equipped with a LOOT Active Camera so you and your friends can capture your adventures and seamlessly upload them to your YouTube account. Fans can catch video content and shop for Doctor Who items - both virtual and real - via LOOT’s Entertainment on Demand system.
“We’re really excited to be bringing this much-loved series to social and virtual worlds,” said Simon Hutson, senior vice president digital development at BBC Worldwide.
“We are committed to preserving the spirit and aesthetic of Doctor Who while introducing this historic franchise to PlayStationHome” said David Sterling, vice president of business development, LOOT Entertainment. “It’s the same Doctor Who millions have loved for 50 years—with a virtual, interactive, and social twist.”
In celebration of the series’ 50th Anniversary, additional Doctor Who themed virtual goods, environments and social experiences will be added to Doctor Who on PlayStation Home throughout 2013.
