This is the first LEGO video game based on the Doctor Who universe. The game follows the events of series five (2010) of the show’s newest incarnation, the first year to feature Matt Smith as the Doctor. The game has over sixty playable characters, and follows the Doctor and his companion(s) through ten different adventures with the established Lego flair for humorous parody and fan service. There are twenty-six levels in story mode, two for each of the season’s thirteen episodes (three are two-part stories).
