BBC explains early Doctor Who release

There was a flurry of activity across Twitter last night as Doctor Who fans discovered that episode one of the Doctor Who: The Adventure Games was available to download ahead of its June 5th release date.

The BBC has issued a statement to MCV saying the reason this version has not been publicised is because it’s not quite the final release.

We’re testing the system with an almost-final version of ‘City of the Daleks’ ahead of the official release date,” Anwen Aspden, executive producer at BBC Wales, told MCV.

The reaction so far has been overwhelming, but we’re still investigating whether we should tweak certain elements up to release on 5th June. So whilst those who’ve downloaded and enjoyed it in its current iteration have the advantage of playing through it early, there may be some minor tweaks coming.

"We’re running a launch trailer for the game immediately after Saturday’s episode of Doctor Who, that’s when we expect the servers to come under the most strain – we’ll let everyone know if the finished article is available ahead of then.”
