The new idle mobile game will be free-to-play and mostly story-driven, featuring some of the classic Doctor Who storylines and characters. Doctor Who mobile will be developed using ESGG’s proven Game Kit-Idle platform, and once finished, the game will also be published under East Side Games Group on both Android and iOS platforms.

Throughout the decades, we have seen 14 renditions of the Doctor;

  • Thirteenth Doctor: Jodie Whittaker (2017-present)
  • Twelfth Doctor: Peter Capaldi (2013-2017)
  • Eleventh Doctor: Matt Smith (2010–2013)
  • Tenth Doctor: David Tennant (2005–2010)
  • Ninth Doctor: Christopher Eccleston (2005)
  • The War Doctor: John Hurt 
  • Eighth Doctor: Paul McGann (1996, 2013)
  • Seventh Doctor: Sylvester McCoy (1987–1989, 1996)
  • Sixth Doctor: Colin Baker (1984–1986)
  • Fifth Doctor: Peter Davison (1981–1984)
  • Fourth Doctor: Tom Baker (1974–1981)
  • Third Doctor: Jon Pertwee (1970–1974)
  • Second Doctor: Patrick Troughton (1966–1969)
  • First Doctor: William Hartnell (1963–1966)

According to the fans of the series, the most popular version of the Time Lord is a tie between the Tenth Doctor played by David Tennant & the eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith. As such, there is a chance that we might see these versions of the Doctor in the game, but it is ultimately up to the developers to choose.
