The Doctor to Travel on Wii

From The currently ongoing version of BBC's television show Doctor Who is now set for translation onto the Nintendo Wii and DS. Though details are still somewhat spotty, the BBC has reportedly made a deal with Nintendo that is estimated to be worth £10 million ($15 million). The games are scheduled for release in the UK in October, with no other regions mentioned yet.

The Sun first reported the deal, which was later confirmed by MCVUK. A Sun insider stated: "We're delighted to have finally nailed down a deal. We went with Nintendo as they have huge appeal for families and Doctor Who is very much a family brand." The game will be focused on the television show's newest Doctor, Matt Smith, and will include popular series enemies such as the Daleks, Cybermen, and Silurians.
