Transporting fans into a globally-beloved world of aliens, mystery and wonder, Doctor Who: The Edge Of Time lets fans embark on a classic Doctor Who adventure. It is inspired by the show’s 55-year history and stars the Doctor’s current incarnation, played by Jodie Whittaker.Doctor Who is one of the longest-running action-adventure television series in the world. It spans 55 years and has won over 100 awards. This quintessentially British show has a huge global following, with 9.6m fans across social platforms/channels and 100m video views on YouTube in the last year alone. It was the most tweeted about drama programme brand in the UK throughout 2018. Doctor Who is sold to over 249 territories.

In addition to untethered VR support, letting fans explore the Doctor Who universe at will, is a number of improvements upon the original release, including options for rapid-turning and faster movement.

Also available today for PC VR platforms is the ‘Quick Play’ feature: letting players jump straight into the Tardis, arm themselves within a Dalek’s shell, or come face-to-face with the Weeping Angels!

Ian Hambleton CEO of Maze Theory said “The Quest version is a big milestone for us. Whilst it’s a more complicated development process we see this headset and others like it as the future of VR. Untethered movement is a huge gain for users and developers and we are seeing this momentum reflected in the popularity of Quest and its hardware/software sales. VR is really tipping into the mainstream and we’re excited to be part of the wave this January!
