Warlord Games and the BBC announce a tie up to produce a new licenced Dr Who Miniatures Game.
"Warlord Games is absolutely delighted to have secured the licence to
produce a miniatures game based on the BBC's enormously popular TV
series, Doctor Who (back on BBC One on September 19th!). So delighted we
might just have a celebratory jelly baby.
As lifelong Doctor Who fans ourselves, we are extremely
pleased to have the chance to bring this iconic series to the tabletop
with a game system you all know and love as well as the official range
of miniatures to complement it.
The licence covers not just the latest series of Doctor Who
but encompasses all of the Doctors, their companions and their foes.
So, expect to see Sea Devils as much as Weeping Angels, Leela as much as
Martha Jones, and a long, brightly coloured scarf as much as a fez
(fezzes are cool, by the way...)."
And I am equally proud and delighted that Warlord Games have selected the writer!
I watched the first ever Dr Who programme as a little boy when it was broadcast in 1963 and have been a fan ever since. Incidentally, we did hide behind the sofa when the Daleks arrived. We were much less sophisticated in those days.
