It's a "brilliant, brilliant adventure" says executive producer Steven Moffat, calling it a "funny, touching, terrifying, amazing" episode to play.
"TARDIS is a brilliant, brilliant adventure," says Steven Moffat. "It's funny, touching, terrifying, amazing - everything a Doctor Who episode should be. Since 1963, kids have wondered what it would be like to control the TARDIS. Now we're handing complete control of the most powerful ship in all of space and time to a generation of children. Everybody duck!"
The first two episodic adventures have been downloaded over 1.3m times in the UK. The Doctor Who games are entirely free to British residents thanks to the TV license. So what is the 3rd instalment all about?
"With the TARDIS stuck in a riptide, and the Doctor sucked into space, Amy Pond must explore the secrets of the time machine in order to restore normality. The adventure will uncover the secrets of the TARDIS, unveil two brand new monsters - and allow players to pilot the TARDIS themselves," blurbs the press release.
Have you played BBC's Doctor Who: The Adventure Games, videogamer? It releases August 27th and all non-UK residents will have to pay to download it.
