A bow tie in 2012?

Fans of dodgy British sci-fi will be able to get their fill on 23rd May when Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock releases on PlayStation 3. It’ll launch as a digital download first, but will quickly be followed by a retail release on 25th May. Sadly, the Vita version won’t arrive until 13th June. Both titles will be able to share saves, however.

The game itself looks a lot like Ubisoft’s recent TinTin movie tie-in – obviously with more British accents and less French ones. Performances from Matt Smith and Alex Kingston are promised.

We’d happily purchase a copy of The Eternity Clock if it purely consisted of six hours staring at Jenna-Louise Coleman, but unless the following trailer is grossly misleading, we don’t think that’s going to be the case. It’s a missed opportunity if you ask us.
