The world’s most famous time-traveler will finally get his own MMO later this year when the BBC unleashes Doctor Who: Worlds in Time.

What could possibly be a more natural setting for an MMO than the time-traveling, dimension-hopping, galaxy-spanning adventures of Doctor Who? ( Don’t say Stargate.) Hop in the Tardis, push a few buttons and you could wind up anywhere from a prehistoric jungle to a gleaming, super-advanced sci-fi city. It’s such an obvious fit, and soon you’ll have your chance to do just that in the free-to-play MMO Doctor Who: Worlds in Time.

Doctor Who: Worlds in Time will be a free-to-play multiplayer online game that invites players to save the universe by using their wits to solve time-bending puzzles and pulse-pounding challenges,” said BBC Worldwide Executive Vice President Robert Nashak. Players will square off against some of the Doctor’s deadliest enemies in the game, which will offer social options and encourage “genuine cooperation” between players around the world.

Doctor Who, for those who don’t know, is a long-running BBC science fiction series that’s been around since 1963 and has featured numerous actors in the lead role, the best of whom without question was Tom Baker.

Doctor Who: Worlds in Time is being developed by Three Rings, the studio behind the 2003 release Puzzle Pirates, in conjunction with BBC Worldwide, and is expected to come out later this year.
