Doctor Who and Top Gear Games?

MCV reports on efforts by the BBC to get back into the world of video games, shopping some of their properties such as Doctor Who, Top Gear, and In The Night Garden to publishers and developers. They say they are pursuing games on iPhone and Facebook as well as portable games for DS and Wii. It sounds like they may be aiming at youthful audiences, however: "We are open to conversations with anybody in games about all kinds of business models to see how we can extract more value," said Neil Ross Russell, MD of children's and licensing. "Outside of Disney we have the most well-known line-up of children’s characters around the world."

A good TV series doesn't mean a good game. Look at movie tie-ins.

I'd like to see the Top Gear test track in games so I could watch Top Gear and then try to beat Stig's time in the most similar vehicle in Forza/GT/NFS:Shift/other. That's the sole tie-in I can think of that would be worth implementing.

There's that and maybe recreating some of those beautiful mountain passes they've been to over the years. I've been dying for a driving sim to head back to the style of older Need for Speed games of supercars battling it out on public roads in interesting locales - I think Porsche Unleashed comes the closest to what I'm talking about.
