Doctor Who is the longest running science fiction series and in the last few years has had a wondrous resurgence that I whole-heartedly jumped on board. With most successful sci-fi franchises, a role-playing game is inevitable. Cubicle 7 has been working on this project for some time and they're about to release three products: The Doctor Who core RPG box set, a Gamemaster screen, and a bestiary book of sorts.

Imagine you could go anywhere. This world or countless others, encountering strange alien races, new cultures or hostile environments. Now imagine you could travel to any time. See the pyramids and the Sphinx (back when she had a nose!), discover who (or what) really built Stonehenge, meet the first Emperor of Japan, or travel into the far future as humanity spreads to the stars. Where would you go?
With Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space, the power is in your hands! You can go anywhere or anywhen in the universe. It’s not going to be easy. It’ll probably be dangerous. The universe is a hostile place, full of Daleks, Slitheen, Krillitane, Sontarans, Plasmavores, Cybermen, Sycorax, Judoon and worse. There will be fear, heartbreak and excitement, but above all, it’ll be the trip of a lifetime.

• Player’s Guide • Gamemaster’s Guide • Adventure Book • Quick Start Guide • Character sheets, including pre-generated characters for the series cast • Tokens and Dice

In the vast expanse of space wait creatures beyond the imagination. Mutants housed in impenetrable armour, vast criminal families that disguise themselves in the skins of their victims, and thousands of cloned soldiers ready to conquer and crush.
But it's not all evil and danger out there. The songs of the peaceful enslaved echo through time, while others try to protect the weaker species in the endless night of space.
