Nick Frost, mostly known from his bromance roles with actor Simon Pegg , has been offered and accepted a role for the 2014 Doctor Who Christmas Special.
Minecraft players will have access to a range of Doctor Who assets which will allow them to change their avatar to resemble their favorite characters from the show. The first pack will include a character inspired by the Twelfth Doctor as well as five other Doctors, each of their on-screen companions and some of the Doctor’s most well known adversaries including his arch-nemeses, the Daleks.
Doctor Who, in the twenty-first century, has played a key role in the BBC’s strategies to assert the continuing value of its public service remit against the fragmentation of television audiences in the multi-channel age. Joseph Oldham explains how this has been accomplished by drawing upon the traditions of public service and national address associated with an age of television from which Doctor Who first emerged.
