Doctor Who Free Game Proving Popular

Remember the first episode of the Doctor Who series 'City of Daleks' which released earlier this month for free? Well it's managed to shift over 524,000 copies in its first 12 days with the BBC seeing website traffic increase 67% during the first week it released. Not too shabby eh? Series head writer and executive producer Steven Moffat commented:
“Matt Smith has conquered space, now he’s conquering cyberspace. The way the games capture the look and feel of the TV series is amazing."

“Matt Smith walks like a drunken giraffe on-screen and also in-game – it’s a virtuoso virtual performance, and one I’m delighted is proving to be so popular. Just worried I won’t get any writing done, what with playing the game all the time. Half a million download requests in 12 days – amazing.”
Fun times, free stuff for the win. Episode two releases on June 22nd.
