Doctor Who: The Adventure Game will consist of four downloadable 'interactive episodes' where the player will get to control both the Doctor and his new sidekick Amy.
Matt Smith, who plays the Doctor, and Karen Gillan (Amy) have provided full voiceovers for the game and what takes place in these episodes will make sense on the overall Doctor Who universe and fit with the current series.
In fact Piers Wenger, head of drama, BBC Wales and executive producer of Doctor Who, goes as far as to say that there are not 13 episodes, there are 17 - four of which are interactive.
"Everything you see and experience within the game is part of the Doctor Who universe: we'll be taking you to places you've only ever dreamed about seeing - including locations impossible to create on television," he added.
Simon Nelson, head of BBC Multiplatform in Vision, said: "A few years ago we couldn't have dreamt of commissioning such an innovative form of drama.
"By integrating the creation of these 'interactive episodes' with the development of the TV series, we've been able to create amazing two-hour dramas in which you control the action. We've all imagined what it would be like to come face-to-face with some of the universe's most terrifying monsters - now viewers can find out for themselves."
The question is: will it be in the UK only or can North America be able to download it?
