Though I’ve never really sat down and watched through a ton of Doctor Who, it’s always been an intriguing show to me. The trailer alone makes me very interested in venturing into this world of monsters, aliens, and new creatures. Having just had my first experience in virtual reality this past week, I can see quite a bit of promise as new games come out and new headsets get announced.
I’m super excited to see Doctor Who: The Edge of Time release in September, and hopefully, by then, I’ll have my own virtual reality setup to dive into this new world myself.
