For years we've been curious about the popularity of Doctor Who — particularly overseas — but its something we accept that we'll never understand.

Unsurprisingly, we're not particularly enamoured with the idea of the ol' Doc making his debut on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, but we suppose some people are. Rumoured overnight, BBC has confirmed that Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock is in development at Supermassive Games. PlayStation fans will recognise Supermassive Games as the name behind Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves, Tumble and Start The Party.

The Eternity Clock will see the Doctor and River Song in a sprint to save the world, with players required to “master the complexities of time travel with exceptional time-based gameplay". The game's been co-written by BBC Wales, with actors Matt Smith and Alex Kingston lending their voices to the title.

There's a trailer after the jump. The game's set to launch digitally on PS3 and PS Vita next year.
