Doctor In A Dash is an online game published on the BBC Doctor Who website. The game was designed and animated by Sequence, a digital agency who had previously designed several other games for Doctor Who, Torchwood and the Sarah Jane Adventures.
The Tenth Doctor has detected an unstable space-time manipulator which disturbs the very existence of the universe. In the wrong hands, it could be a terrible weapon. He must travel in the TARDIS and race in time and space to recover it before the Daleks, Judoon or Slitheen recover it, avoiding the objects in his path that can damage the TARDIS deflector shield. At the end of the game the Doctor destroys the space-time Manipulator.
