I’m familiar with modern-day Doctor Who, but I don’t watch it. In fact, I haven’t properly watched a Doctor Who episode since the days when Sylvester McCoy and Ace went head-to-head with a man made out of Liquorice Allsorts.
Back then Doctor Who still felt like a sci-fi horror show for kids, featuring a healthy dose of mortal peril in each episode, but in my minds eye, the episodes were always rather colourful and a touch psychedelic. That’s why I was a bit taken aback by how gloomy Doctor Who: The Edge of Time was. Are the newer series really this poorly lit?
If you want to see what I’m on about, check out this week’s episode of Ian’s VR Corner in the video player below. I took a trip to developer Maze Theory’s offices to record an exclusive Let’s Play of a portion of one of the game’s five levels and this snippet shows off just how murky the visuals in the game can actually get.
