In Doctor Who: Time of the Daleks, players take on the role of the Doctor, travelling throughout time and space, finding new companions and having adventures to repair the web of time. Players do this by overcoming challenges. The Doctor can overcome most challenges he encounters, but he always needs his Companions to help give him an edge. Players must cooperate to stop the Daleks, while trying to get their TARDIS to Gallifrey first, to prevent Davros from invading the Matrix in the first place.

This game is almost the definition of a "7." Some well-observed design work, including the exciting dice mechanic and the great system of companions. Its biggest problem is that it lacks a defined arc, meaning that you basically do the same thing until the game ends. It punishes failure harshly, and doesn't really reward success meaningfully. I like it enough to keep on playing it, because I'm a fan of the show and I like the broad strokes. But a little more time in development could have made this something great.
