A planned videogame trilogy of releases starting with 2012’s charming but flawed Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock has been put on hold, according to Digital Spy.

“Currently we’re not working on a sequel, to be honest,” said BBC Worldwide’s executive vice president of digital entertainment and games Robert Nashak.

“We’re keeping it as an option moving forward, but we want to see where with Doctor Who we can reach the fans best.

“On console is interesting, because console fans really love the game, but the expectations are for a lot of the development spent on console,” he added.

“So we’re trying to figure out what is the best route for reaching Doctor Who fans with really, really great content.”

Nashak made sure not to rule out returning to The Eternity Clock with a sequel down the road, but it is not something that the BBC is actively pursuing.

“We love the storyline we developed there, we love the feel of that game, and so we’re definitely thinking about it for the future, but there is nothing in the plans right now.”

Pick up Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock now for PlayStation 3 for £19.99 from Amazon.co.uk.
