LEGO Dimensions Easter Eggs - Doctor Who The Fan Show

LEGO Dimensions was a video game released by LEGO in 2015.

The game featured various different LEGO ranges, including many from licensed franchises, including Doctor Who, The Wizard of Oz, The Simpsons, Ninjago, DC Comics, Back to the Future, Portal, The Lord of the Rings, Ghostbusters, Midway Arcade, Chima, The Lego Movie, Jurassic World and Scooby-Doo. Characters joined forces on an adventure through different "worlds" based upon the franchises.

The base game included Batman, Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings and Wyldstyle from The LEGO Movie. Players could optionally purchase additional expansion packs adding other playable characters from the different franchises, including the the Doctor and other characters from Doctor Who. Peter Capaldi recorded extensive new dialogue as the Twelfth Doctor for the game; for preceding Doctors (War Doctor included), archival audio was used. A number of other Doctor Who actors recorded new dialogue including Jenna Coleman, Neve McIntosh, John Barrowman, Dan Starkey and Michelle Gomez, with Nicholas Briggs providing alien voices.

One level in the main game took place within the DWU, with an appearance by the Twelfth Doctor and a cameo appearance by Clara Oswald. The Daleks and other Doctor Who monsters also appeared in this level and also in other parts in the game, but accessing other content — including the ability to play as the Twelfth Doctor (and other incarnations) and access the Doctor Who Adventure World area, as well as accessing several secret Doctor Who-themed levels within the main game — required the purchase of an expansion pack.

As of March 2016, two expansion packs were released. The first included the Doctor, K9 and The Doctor's TARDIS, as well as an exclusive bonus level, "The Dalek Extermination of Earth". A second "Fun Pack" expansion featured a Cyberman and a Dalek. The Doctor and Cyberman were actual playable characters; K9, the TARDIS and the Dalek were considered vehicles. Unique of all other vehicles available for the game, the TARDIS was the only one with an explorable interior in which studs (the game's main currency equivalent, needed to complete certain tasks and to call upon characters not owned by the player to solve puzzles) could be collected.

It was possible to play the game through without possessing the Doctor. Several puzzles requiring his expertise could be solved using other optional characters or using "Hire a Hero" in which the Doctor, for a fee, could briefly be brought in to solve the puzzle. Several secret levels within the game, however, could only be accessed using the TARDIS, as described below.

Plot Edit

The overall plot of the game involves Batman, Wyldstyle and Gandalf (along with optional add-on characters, including potentially the Twelfth Doctor) visiting different worlds in order to retrieve parts of an artifact and rescue friends who have been kidnapped. Following levels based upon (among other fictional universes), Wizard of Oz and The Simpsons, the adventurers enter a level based upon the universe of Doctor Who.

A Dalektable Adventure Edit

While the group is travelling into the vortex once more, Wyldstyle asks Batman if they 'should have arrived' at this point. He agrees with her suggestion and asks her to check for anything in her Relic Scanner, with no luck. Gandalf, upon noticing the strange reactions from Wyldstyle's Relic Scanner, wonders what would happen to them. Just then, they hear the Twelfth Doctor telling them to join him in his TARDIS, as the latter appears in front of them, with the Doctor coming to their rescue.

Once he manages to get them out of the vortex, he then informs of them that they have monsters to deal with. Batman then confronts him about himself and what he was doing with them, while The Doctor asks Wyldstyle if Batman really acts like that, then repairs her Relic Scanner with his sonic screwdriver. He then explains about the TARDIS and time travel in a nutshell (while Gandalf briefly changing into Gandalf the White from fiddling with the TARDIS console before reverting back to his old self), and claimed that he had met them at some point of their lives, but they haven't met him in his current incarnation; Batman thinks he was lying, but then the Doctor shows him one Grapple Gun he recovered. After comparing the two Grapple Guns that he's holding on, Batman is still not convinced by The Doctor's proof, which has the Doctor calling him out for not believing him.

Once the TARDIS reappears itself in the Cyber Ship, The Doctor escorts the group outside. Before leaving, The Doctor gives Wyldstyle his phone number in case of emergency. He does wish to join in their quest to save the LEGO Multiverse, but said that him joining them at this point can mess up the Doctor Who World's timeline so badly that any damage 'can slip a needle through it (the vortex)'. As the TARDIS disappears, Gandalf, being confused, asks what is going on; Wyldstyle, however, said she couldn't explain it either, but theorized that another Keystone (Scale) is hidden in this world.

The group travel through the Cyber Ship encountering many Cybermen of their way (and, optionally, also rescuing Clara Oswald), before accidentally reactivating a giant Cyber King which proceeds to attack the group. After a long battle the Cyber King's head detaches from it's body on tentacle like appendages and the trio give chase. They follow the Cyber King onto the planet's surface which is soon revealed to be the Trenzalore Graveyard and an army of Weeping Angels chase the three heroes before eventually cornering them inside a crashed Cyber Ship but thanks to Batman's quick thinking they escape through a trap door leaving the Angels looking at each other never to move again. (Note: before escaping through the trap door, if the player as a TARDIS they can access a secret level based upon TV: The Girl in the Fireplace.)

The trio then fall down into what appears to be a Dalek hub deep beneath the surface of the planet with dormant Daleks. Wyldstyle asks curiously what the Daleks are. Gandalf responds in relief that at least they aren't the Weeping Angels. Suddenly the Daleks reactivate and warn the group to stay still but Wyldstyle foolishly says they were friends of The Doctor. Upon hearing this the Daleks go berserk and demand to know where The Doctor is. At which time the enormous Dalek emperor towers above them and orders his Daleks to exterminate them. The Dalek emperor uses the shift keystone to enlarge two ordinary Daleks and one special weapons Dalek to destroy the group. A long battle ensues, during which the group must use pieces of destroyed Daleks to construct a giant telephone to contact the Doctor, who arrives to save the day. After defeating the Emperor, they discover that this is actually a Doctor from the past who hasn't met them yet and Batman gives the Doctor his grapple gun.

Further levels Edit

Characters from Doctor Who appear in subsequent levels, such as one set in Metropolis. Near the end of the game the trio begin recruiting a small band of the allies they have made over the course of the game, including Mystery Inc., the Ghostbusters, the space ship Defender, and even GLaDOS, and The Doctor, who was at the time captured by Zygons, Weeping Angels, Cybermen and Daleks. Fortunately, the trio disguised themselves as Zygons and defeated the enemies and freed The Doctor. Back at Vorton, The Doctor asks where the A.I. that needs fixing is and GLaDOS tells The Doctor to reinstall her amorality core but The Doctor merely scoffs at GLaDOS and proceeds to repair X-PO. While the Doctor, GLaDOS, and X-PO work on a plan to seal Vortech away, the heroes head to Foundation Prime. With their allies' help, they are able to destroy the pad, which infuriates Vortech. He grows to an enormous size and attacks the trio, but the Doctor is able to manipulate the portal technology and sucks all of them into a rift loop. Using a special device he, GLaDOS, and X-PO designed, the heroes are able to seal Vortech in an endless rift prison for all eternity, saving the dimensions.

The Dalek Extermination of Earth Edit

Lego Dimensions Davros 4

Davros curses the Doctor for interfering in his plans once again.

The optional add-on pack sold separately adds the Twelfth Doctor as a playable character and also unlocks this exclusive game level which is presented as a mini-episode of Doctor Who, complete with opening credit sequence featuring all the Doctors.

In the future Earth, the Daleks are attacking London and converting humans into new Daleks under Davros' command. The Doctor and his friends have to shut down a series of Dalek generators and travel to Trenzalore and Skaro to put an end to Davros' schemes. Along the way, Clara Oswald can be optionally rescued again.

Upon completing this level, the player gets the ability to play as any of the 13 Doctors (including the War Doctor), though in order to unlock each Doctor the character has to be killed. After this, the change can be made from the TARDIS console at will or left to cycle through the Doctors. The interior of the TARDIS changes depending on which Doctor is active, with the TARDISes for the First and Second Doctors rendered in black and white. Each TARDIS interior also has a differing amount of studs that can be harvested (rendering the TARDIS a valuable asset for players who rely on the "Hire a Hero" option in the main game), with the Eighth and Eleventh Doctor TARDIS interiors offering the most studs for retrieval. The musical score also changes depending on the Doctor.

Bonus levels Edit

The TARDIS included in the add-on pack also provides access to a number of secret bonus levels both in the main game and other add-on packs. For example, the Simpsons level has a secret TARDIS landing pad that provides access to a secret level based upon The Flintstones, and a TARDIS landing pad within the Lord of the Rings level provides access to a bonus area featuring characters from TV: Dinosaurs on a Spaceship. The main Doctor Who level has an access point to a level based upon TV: The Girl in the Fireplace. Two expansion pack secret area also exist: in the Simpsons level pack destroying the double decker bus from TV: Planet of the Dead reveals a TARDIS access to a level based upon The Jetsons, while the Doctor Who level pack mission has a TARDIS access point to an area based upon the Black Archive. Within the fifth level of the Fantastic Beasts story pack, there is a TARDIS point that takes you to S.T.A.R Labratories from the DC Comics franchise.

At present, the game offers players no options other than to use the TARDIS to access these bonus areas, keeping them exclusive to players who purchase the Doctor Who Level Pack expansion. Notably, the in-game assignment of collecting a set number of mini-kit pieces in each mission (which unlocks bonuses) cannot be accomplished in the Doctor Who and Lord of the Rings main-game levels or the Simpsons or Doctor Who Level Pack missions without it as in all these cases some mini-kit pieces are only accessible in the bonus areas.

Doctor Who Adventure World Edit

DWDimensions

71204 Level Pack

In addition to unlocking the above level, the add-on pack also allows access to a series of mini-worlds featuring missions involving Missy, Vastra, Captain Jack and others. Specifically, the areas feature modern-day London, Victorian London, Skaro, Trenzalore, Telos and the surface of Mars. The areas will begin as disconnected from one another but the player will be able to complete puzzles that will connect the other areas to Modern London.

Story notes Edit

  • Clara and the Eleventh Doctor are depicted as they are in the 2015 Lego building set based upon Doctor Who, but the Twelfth Doctor's design and outfit re different. Clara's outfit is based upon what she wore in TV: The Time of the Doctor and Deep Breath, while the Doctor wears his standard Series 8 suit in the game (in the building set, he wears a purple jacket).
  • In the main game Doctor Who level, the Doctor talks about the danger of meeting himself and explains this is why he cannot directly aid the players in that level. Although the level indicates this is due to the Doctor bouncing back and forth in time, this is also due to the possibility that the player may have a Twelfth Doctor character figure, which can be used in the level.
  • Regardless of whether the Doctor is active or not, when Clara is rescued she still intones her Series 7 catchphrase, "Run you clever boy, and remember me." In the main game level, with the Doctor absent, the statement still make sense as the game requires Batman, a core character, to actually complete the rescue.

The Dalek Extermination of Earth Edit

  • During the opening sequence, which appears as a LEGO version of the 2014 opening credits, the first eleven Doctors and the War Doctor can be seen hanging off of different parts of the title sequence. The Twelfth Doctor appears at the end and winks at the player in a style reminiscent of the Seventh Doctor in the 1987-89 opening credits.
  • The portion of the bonus level involving rescuing Clara cannot be completed until a certain section of the main game is finished, due to the requirement of having located a certain keystone in the main game first. Initially, it also required the possession of a character capable of shooting water in order to retrieve the keystone, but a later update added a "Dial a Hero" option that allowed a water-shooting character (specifically Krusty the Clown from The Simpsons) to briefly appear long enough to overcome the obstacle.
  • Using the TARDIS console to move between areas rather than relying on the TARDIS landing areas reveal two bonus areas that unlock during the course of the game, both in 1890s London: one involves rebuilding the CyberKing from TV: The Next Doctor, and the other is a town square area where the player helps Strax defeat a group of Snowmen. The mission story can be completed without having visited either area (though they are necessarily in order to receive all the game level's minikit collectables).
