Doctor Who Infinity's second game will pit Third Doctor against the Zarbi

The second episode of the video game Doctor Who Infinity will be The Orphans of The Polyoptra, Digital Spy can exclusively reveal.

The new episode will be released together with the first episode, The Dalek Invasion of Time, when the game launches on PC and mobile this spring. Four additional stories are slated to launch in 2018, with more adventures to follow.

Doctor Who Infinity brings the world of the Doctor to life in a brand new game, delivering episodic, comic-book style game adventures.

Designed by Tiny Rebel Games and Seed Studio, each adventure features its own unique cast, art style and author.

The Orphans of The Polyoptra – featuring the third Doctor – is narrated by Katy Manning, reprising her role as companion Jo Grant (or technically Jo Jones, since the character’s telling the story from the present day!).

Manning will also voice the story’s villain, the Zarbi Supremo! As Doctor Who classic series aficionados will know, the insectoid Zarbi first appeared in 1965 TV story ‘The Web Planet’, going up against the first Doctor (William Hartnell).

The Orphans of the Polyoptra is being written by Gary Russell, author of a number of Doctor Who novels and audio plays and former editor of Doctor Who Magazine.

The game’s art has been drawn by David Roach (inker of comic strips for Doctor Who Magazine) and coloured by Dylan Teague (Doctor Who Magazine, DC Comics).

You can preview the game here, via Steam.

As announced in March, The Dalek Invasion of Time will be the first episode on the Doctor Who Infinity platform.

That game is being narrated by Michelle Gomez, who reprises her role as Missy; Ingrid Oliver, who reprises her TV series role as Osgood; and Game of Thrones star Bella Ramsey, who voices a new villain character named Freya.
