Title: Doctor Who references in games
Post by: blackdalek on 15:41, 20 January 18
What Doctor Who references have you seen in CPC games, not counting games explicitly connected with Doctor Who? (not Mines of Terror for example)

Here's a few I know of:

N.E.X.O.R. - There are several TARDIS's in the game which disappear when the player touches them

Head Over Heels - the blatant half Dalek/Davros baddies

Macrocosmica - features "a mysterious Mr Hoo who travels in a spacious blue box"

Are there any others you've found?

Roland in Space.
Roland in Time.

How did I ever forget the Roland Games. I must have played the Roland in Time demo on the system disks a thousand times just to listen to the Doctor Who theme when I was a kid. Yes, I am probably insane.  :laugh: :P :-\

2112 AD has the player aided by a robot dog that looks very much like K-9.

Brian Bloodaxe has Dalek enemies too.

I'm sure there's some more I can't think of any moment.   The two Roland games mentioned are the ones that always come to my mind cos blatantly obvious and the Roland games being so common to CPC owners. :P

Lords of Time has enemy Timelords but I'm not sure if that counts.

Might be a bit of a stretch, or my imagination, but I always thought of the Vortons in Highway Encounter (http://cpc-power.com/index.php?page=detail&num=1086) and Alien Highway (http://cpc-power.com/index.php?page=detail&num=252) as 'Dalek inspired'.

No stretch at all. Definitely Dalek shaped with an angle at the front, and perhaps even closer in resemblance to the new series Paradigm "chunky" Daleks.

Not CPC related ... but certainly Doctor Who related, so I think you may find this interesting.


A couple of months ago I made a Doctor Who game for PC/Mac. It's free too.


It's a graphical adventure inspired by Pyjamarama and the Lucas Arts adventures.

You might like to fix your caption for the 2nd screen shot on that page.

The story set on Telos is "Tomb of the Cybermen" - Not Tenth Planet. ;)
