Eurogamer’s loss is your gain

by Warren

I originally wrote this article about the new Doctor Who video game for Eurogamer, but then E3 happened and by the time the annual gaming conference was finished the game had already been out for a while. So as a result, Eurogamer nicely said I could publish the article anywhere I like.

I’m lucky enough to know Phil Ford, the writer of the game and of various Doctor Who episodes (along with being the head writer of the Sarah Jane Adventures) and he was cool with being interviewed for the article, presented in full below. And if you’re arriving from Radio Free Skaro…hello! Thanks for listening ot the podcast and I hope you enjoy my site.


One of the UK’s oldest heroes is entering a whole new world.

Doctor Who returned to the small screen in 2005, hypnotizing a whole new generation of viewers with the adventures of the Doctor and his companions as he once again hurtled through space and time vanquishing his enemies with only a keen wit and his trusty sonic screwdriver.

Though the new show soon spread to other media such as novels, toys and comics, video games were unexplored territory until the BBC announced earlier this year that they would release four “adventure games” featuring Matt Smith, the newest incarnation of the Doctor, and Karen Gillan, who plays Amy Pond, his new companion.

What I’ve been up to…

by Warren

So since I left the Electric Playground I’ve been fairly busy, which goes counter to the idea that if you leave a day job you instantly become a video game playing, couch dwelling loafabout. Some of what I’m doing, like blogging and shooting video for Techvibes, doing videos for friends like Khare Communications, doing some video tutorials and filming events, is out on the net and viewable by all.

Some of what I’m doing or have planned I can’t quite get into yet…because nothing’s been finalized or (in one particular case) I’m the driving force and haven’t quite finalized how I’ll do it.

In the meantime I’m going to try to keep updating the site with video-centric news, but bear with me. It’s not easy editing almost every day and then trying to wrap my head around a blog post.

Canadian iPhone hacking article up at Mac | Life

by Warren

I wrote an article for Mac|Life about the lengths we have to go to north of the border to get and use iPhones. I think Mac|Life deserves extra points for using a flappy headed South Park Canadian as the symbol of our displeasure.
