This is hardly a comprehensive review, more of a first look. I have not played the game yet just looked at the system.

I am amazed how similar this is to Unisystem. It would be unbelievably easy to translate characters between the two games. At first this turned me off in a way and I really felt like Doctor Who the RPG was just fan service. Especially with the lets play the doctor and all his companions play style. I dug in a little deeper, and I did like using attributes to track damage instead of the more American hitpoint methodologies. Then I saw the innitiative. The innitiative is a beautiful beautiful thing. It along with the attribute damage (which I havent quite figgured out the nubmbers for yet but) allows you to put as much drama and mechanics into trying talking to and reasoning with an NPC or other character as most games put into combat alone. This is SO HUGE to help live up to Doctor Who levels of storytelling where often the most amazing thing that happens is a dialogue or a soliloquy that changes EVERYTHING. When you can put just as much interest fun and effot into ANYTHING in the game besides just fighting and literally use the same types of mechanics for ALL of it? Man that is something. I cant wait to try it out and see if it plays as well as it looks like it does. (I want to do a story of a Human collony caught in the midst of the Time War where the Doctor is elusive and mysterious and danger is everywhere and where Human compassion is fleeting yet Powerfull) Now to just find some players.
