Gale Force Nine Previews The Tenth Doctor In Time of the Daleks

The cultural impact of Doctor Who is undeniable. Especially if you're in the "nerd crowd," you see references and allusions to it all over. And it's not just the older Doctors who get referenced. The newer ones have their own followings, as people debate about which was the best. Well, the Tenth iteration certainly has a lot of fans, and you can play him in Time of the Daleks, coming from Gale Force Nine. Take a look at what you can expect in this preview.

From the post:

“Whatever you've got planned, forget it! I'm the Doctor. I'm 904 years old. I'm from the planet Gallifrey in the constellation of Kasterborous. I'm the Oncoming Storm, the Bringer of Darkness, and you... are basically just a rabbit, aren't you? Ok, carry on... just a... general... warning...”

One of my favorite moments with the Tenth Doctor was from the “Children in Need” special where he teamed up with the Fifth Doctor, bringing the new into the old in a way as a fan, I always wanted but never thought they would do.

The Tenth Doctor, Rose, Mickey, Martha, Donna, Mott, and Captain Jack, these names bring back great memories. Even his monsters were iconic, from Weeping Angels, Clockwork Robots, to the return of Sontarans, the Tenth Doctor had it all.
"There is an old earth saying Captain, filled with power and wisdom, and consolation to the soul in times of need… ALLON-Y!”

In the game the Tenth Doctor gains three Sonic Charge tokens instead of two at the start of each turn. He also has a more flexible added color die allowing him to either add a single red or green die.

I know the question on your mind, “Why is the Tenth Doctor not linked to Rose?”
It is simple, because Rose has to be linked to… (Spoilers!)

Martha ended up being a good match for the Tenth Doctor, giving him some real focus with the blue story dice. Not only does Martha give the Doctor access to up to three blue dice but she gives him some good re-roll opportunities.
