Long story this.
Back in the 70's, when Doctor Who was the biggest thing ever on TV, but no toys were to be had anywhere, Weetabix, the cereal, came up with the idea of a 4 part board game. Collect the 4 boards and also 6 packs of cards (much rifling through packs at supermarkets by small boys trying to get the full set!). The cards would then slot into the board offering a variety of game each time it was played.
Last year I magaed to get hold of scans of the origonal boards. Very hard work! I then reworked the artwork, polished it up and added some new faces to the cards bringing it into the 21st century for the New Who fans.
The PDF's of all this work are available as a free download from a few sites arond but if you want them I'd go here:
http://seven-wonders.co.uk/ephemera.html
Dean at 7 Wonders was a great help to me and I would love you to visit his excellent site. A real nostalgia trip for those who remeber action transfers and cardboard cut out figures with fondness.
Anyway, the image is a very polished version of the game in play. Hope you like it, but also, hope that if your a fan of Who you take a look at this piece of history.

Copyright wise, I contacted Weetabix very early on for help who were very helpful and had no issues with what I was doing.

As a child, I remember that game. I had some cards but no board,so I made my own.

Hadn't thought about it for years.

Great image and hard work well done.

Lol thats awesome man, never knew there was a board game. The show started a bit before my time, but I did watch it growing up. I don't think it was as big over here in the states as it was in U.K but I was all about it.

Fantastic image - I love it.
I can remember cards, but not a board. Thanks for the memories. I used to drive my mother wild - Weetabix for breakfast, tea & supper until I had the whole set.
