In my opinion the best Doctor Who game, considering that there aren't many good ones.
Pros:
+Music (Murray Gold's awesome incidental music fits perfectly into the action)
+Voice Acting (Provided by the original actors, it somewhat lacks the energy from the show but is forgivable)
+Story (Doctor Who games almost never fail to bring a good story, with its great monsters and never-ending possibilities)
+Atmosphere/Setting (Doctor Who can run wild with its locations, thus it is can place random things at random times and places without being questioned for it)
+Characters (Standard friends/baddies from the show, and perhaps a few new faces)
+Modelling (Every character looks very alike their real life counterparts. Except Rory, god they ruined his face)
+Cards (This one is kind of cheating but if you're a Doctor Who fan, you would have always wanted this. Plus, card designs are nice)

Cons:
-Gameplay (Controls are somewhat messy, mechanics are too easy)
-Graphics (Not all that important, and considering it was made in 2011)
-Replayability (Playable for about 2-3 times to collect everything and before getting bored of the story)
-Length (Episodes are about an hour or so each, so this game can be complete in under around 6 or 7 hours)
-Crafting rewards (Another cheat, basically cancels out the above pro. Expected better badges, emoticons and backgrounds but hey, Dalek emoticon)

Basically,
8/10 for Doctor Who fan (familiarity is what this game relies on, as the fans would understand and forgive all the cons to make way for the pros)
6.5/10 for non-Doctor Who fans (non-fans most likely would not understand much about the show, characters, music, stories, and monsters, and therefore the pros would not affect them much, and the cons would overpower the good aspects. Go watch the show!!!)
Wibbly-wobbly, but still worth playing at its price.

This game is Octodad levels of bad controls. It's JUST as jinky, hilariously frustrating and absurd to try and control at points.
I actually found this to almost be a positive. If you found yourself seriously ENJOYING Octodad, the controls in this aren't quite as complex but just as hit and miss at multiple points.

Graphics wise it's about 6-8 years old despite being only 4 years old. Clipping issues and some rather gnarly graphic glitches do exist, but overall it's a fairly sound PS2 game.

The storylines and voice acting so far have been fairly good, and overall it has been very fun to poke about and enjoy some between episode shenanigans.

That said, I am a huge Whovian nerd, and this game is delightful to me.
I am having a blast with it, and actually really enjoying the retro feel.

It's not a AAA title, it's not groundbreaking or incredible.
It's a Doctor Who game, with decent to great writing, hilariously bad controls and rather nostalgic graphics obviously done on the cheap and holding a very firm sense of the absurd.
Basically it's like Classic Who and Nu!Who had a video game love child.

I'd honestly have far LESS fun if the graphics were AAA level and the controls were smooth and reliable. It's the very rough corners that make this FEEL more like Doctor Who.

If you're a Whovian, I highly recommend you grab this when it's on sale 10-25% off.
If you're a nominal fan, I recommend this when it's on deal of the week or 70+% off.
If you're a giant kid inside who adored both the old and new Who? Get this now. Just do it. Don't argue.
Enjoy the game for what it is- a little jaunt into the marvelously mad world of Dr. Who.

Be a companion to the good doctor and build a long lasting relationship with an intradimensional being that has lived for eons in all kinds of different manifestations!

Sadly bowties over scarves does cheapen the experience.

It doesn't look bad but the gameplay is boring even for an adventure game and few easy puzzles don't change it. I'd rather recommend to (re)watch Doctor Who series instead of playing this game.

Even though it's only 4 episodes. I found to be hooked onto it. The missions were perfectly made.
The downside is that it was only in one language. Good game over all!
