Best Digital Children’s Content: Doctor Who Game Maker


The ability to manipulate the world of Doctor Who and allow fans to create their own adventures in space and time proved a hit with the judges.

The ‘game-making Lego kit’ formed part of the BBC’s Make It Digital initiative, designed to inspire a mainstream, diverse audience to get involved with digital creativity.

Accordingly, the tool, which can be accessed via tablet and mobile devices as well as PC, was made fun and easy to pick up and use – giving creators the confidence to share their work with friends.



The Game Maker kit seeks to reduce the complexity of game creation by breaking it down into a series of components that the user can manipulate through selecting one of a series of characteristics. As users progress, the choices become increasingly broad and more sophisticated techniques are introduced.

The judges were impressed by the service, which all agreed was an “innovative way to engage children”.

They were particularly impressed by the BBC’s decision to open up one of its flagship brands to such experimentation. “Fresh, different and good to see the franchise used in an original and genuinely creative way,” said one judge.

Another summed up the reaction: “A clever and educational use of a much-loved brand.”
