Frequently Asked Questions
Is this the same game as Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space?
It is the same great game! Because we’ve got all sorts of exciting plans for our range of Doctor Who games, we've updated the name to make it as clear as possible what it is when it's on a shelf next to some of the exciting new things we have coming up.
I already have the Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space boxed set – do I need to buy this rulebook to continue playing?
Not at all! While we’ve fully updated the new rulebook with imagery from the latest series of Doctor Who, as well as new monsters, characters and gadgets, the game that you know and love remains the same as it always has done!
What happened to the Limited Edition Core Rulebook?
It was printed in limited numbers and quickly sold out! If you have a copy of the Limited Edition – well done, they’re exceedingly rare nowadays so hold onto it! We've heard a whisper that there's a slim chance we might unearth some unsold copies, but they'll be in short supply.
Is the Doctor Who Roleplaying Game still compatible with all the supplements?
Yes! There’s already a fantastic range of supplements for the Doctor Who Roleplaying Game, so we made sure that the new core rulebook works perfectly with all of them.
Is there a way for me to get the new material without buying the rulebook?
Just like we did with previous regenerations of the game we’re working on a free update PDF that will provide you with the new rules material – including the new characters and monsters – without you having to buy the whole rulebook again. But we think you'll want the standalone hardcover.
"So all of time and all of space is sitting out there. A big blue box. Please don't even argue."
