People took to social media to express their excitement for the new game and the role of Tennant’s Doctor.


One person said, ‘If it was any other Doctor who showed up in ‘Edge of Reality‘ then I would just think ‘That’s cool’ and play it eventually. But because it’s 10, I’m probably gonna play it the day it comes out.’

Someone else called it, ‘Great news!’, and said that they hope the game will come to PlayStation 5 as well.

Another person tweeted, ‘Honestly having two Doctor-actors in a console game feels unreal and exciting as all hell! It just further cements this as the definitive Who game!’


It’s said the game will drop in spring 2021, but an official release date it yet to be given.
