Doctor Who

Bally, 1992

Manufactured By: Bally Manufacturing Co.

Date: September 1992

Bally’s Doctor Who is themed upon the British sci-fi television serial which has been in production since 1963. The game itself features the first seven “Doctors” who appeared in the title role–each Doctor is associated with a different playfield scoring feature and can be selected by the player throughout game progression. The main feature of the game is the Time Expander unit, a moving mechanism with different levels where players are challenged to lock balls and collect targets, leading up to the game’s main multi-ball mode. A Dalek topper and the show’s trademark blue “Police Box” on the lower right of the playfield round out the unique “Whovian” traits that appear in this game.
