Take control of The Doctor (and sometimes Amy and Rory), and navigate through a surprisingly large number of stealth sections in this episodic game!

Unused Dialogue Audio

An alternate recording of the Doctor saying 'No!' after Sylvia dies. Except for some reason, he seems mildly annoyed by it in this take.

SID_0492

An alternate recording of 'SID_0511', probably removed for being too quiet.

SID_0511

Two alternate recordings exist for 'SID_0825'.

SID_0825 Alternate 1
SID_0825 Alternate 2

An alternate recording of 'SID_1164', in which the Doctor speaks quietly rather than shouting.

SID_1164

An alternate recording of Amy at the beginning of the game, the used version is said in a way that makes it a more obvious hint.

SID_0566

Amy says 'What?'. The used version is said like a question, but these two are scared and annoyed.

SID_0612 Alternate 1


SID_0612 Alternate 2

A completely different line from Amy. The used version of SID_0629 has her say "Doctor please, hurry. I'm fading away."

SID_0629 Alternate



Hmmm...
To do:
  • There are still more alternate line recordings.





Unused Lua Instructions

Amy was supposed to die by electrocution if you run out of time and get the Doctor killed in the laser maze room at the end of City of the Daleks. This might have been removed because it didn't make sense, as Amy would presumably have been killed by the explosion, rather than electrocuted.

--	local amy = GetActor("amy")

--	amy:Die("electric")

Dialogue Note

Next to the audio of the Doctor saying "Well, he's not going to tell us where he came from now...", there is a note:

--RE-RECORD
--Needs emphasis on now'.

Naming Discrepancy

Interestingly, Blood of the Cybermen is internally referred to as Episode 1, and City of the Daleks as Episode 2, even though they were eventually released the other way around. This could mean that Blood of the Cybermen was going to be the first episode at some point in development.

Game Script

Some sections of the game's original script remain in the subtitle files. The characters' lines are also present in these files, but have been omitted here, as they are not present in their original script format and are instead used to tell the game to play audio. The lines have not been omitted if they were commented out with --.
