Doctor Who: The Gunpowder Plot Adventure Game Wins BAFTA

It has been revealed that the Doctor Who Adventure Game – The Gunpowder Plot won in the Digital Creativity & Games category at the BAFTA Cymru Awards on Sunday.

Anwen Aspden, one of the game’s Executive Producers, collected the award and thanked the efforts of many people including Phil Ford who wrote the adventure, Voice Director Gary Russell, Steven Moffat and ‘Matt Smith, for being a brilliant Doctor.’

The Gunpowder Plot was the fifth Adventure Game – a huge, powder keg of a story which starred Matt Smith (the Doctor), Karen Gillan (Amy), Arthur Darvill (Rory), Ralf Little (Guy Fawkes), Emilia Fox (Winters), Dan Starkey (Kaarsh) and Phil Daniels (Geoffrey Plum). It marked the return of the Sontarans and Rutans and even featured the Silence, alongside real-life characters and situations from London, 1605.
