Comic-Con 2015: Doctor Who Cast Voicing LEGO Dimensions
All of time and space... whenever, wherever... it's your choice.
Basically, you just have to build it out of little bricks.
Doctor Who fans just got another reason to get excited about the upcoming LEGO Dimensions game. Warner Brothers Interactive announced last night that Peter Capaldi is voicing The Doctor. And he's not alone. Though the initial trailer doesn't include them, stars Jenna Louise Coleman and Michelle Gomez will be voicing Clara Oswald and Missy/The Master respectively.
This just could not be more exciting for fans of both LEGO videogames (and there are quite a few) and Doctor Who. Reports came in last night that Capaldi enthusiastically appeared at the LEGO Dimensions launch party at the Hard Rock Hotel, continuing to be both the ultimate Doctor Who fan himself and, well, The Doctor.
From Warner Brothers Interactive:
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment revealed today at San Diego Comic-Con details about Doctor Who in LEGO Dimensions, the upcoming entertainment experience that allows players to expand their imaginations beyond traditional gaming to merge physical LEGO brick building with interactive console gameplay. Peter Capaldi, who plays the 12th Doctor, Jenna Coleman, who plays Clara Oswald, and Michelle Gomez, who plays Missy, will voice their respective characters from the long running British science fiction television series in LEGO Dimensions.
In a new trailer giving the first look at the Doctor Who gameplay, worlds collide in ways only possible in LEGO Dimensions, such as the TARDIS popping up in Gotham City and Hill Valley, the Doctor battling alongside Homer Simpson in Aperture Science, riding a haunted mine car with Scooby and Shaggy, or fighting alongside Kai and Cragger in a Ninjago battle arena.

Doctor Who, which has never before been in a LEGO videogame, will be playable in the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack with a complete Doctor Who level where the game’s heroes continue their quest while encountering Daleks, Cybermen and other adversaries from the Whoniverse.
Fans who want more Doctor Who in LEGO Dimensions will be able to purchase the Doctor Who Level Pack which includes an additional mission-based Doctor Who level, along with a LEGO minifigure of the 12th Doctor and LEGO models of the TARDIS and K-9, all playable in the game. When the 12th Doctor is defeated in the level, he returns as the 1st Doctor and then regenerates back up to the 12th Doctor again. The interior of the TARDIS will reflect the corresponding Doctor the player embodies or can be manually selected. There’s even a jukebox inside where players can choose among different versions of the Doctor Who theme music. The TARDIS and K-9 models can each be physically built and then rebuilt twice to do entirely different things in the digital game for massive variety.
There will also be a Doctor Who Fun Pack, which includes a playable Cyberman minifigure and Dalek model which can be physically built and then rebuilt twice for a total of three different objects.
Launching September 27, 2015, LEGO Dimensions will be available for Xbox One, the all-in one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation4 and PlayStation3 computer entertainment systems and the Wii U system from Nintendo.
