Doctor Who pack for Minecraft released for Xbox 360, Xbox One version coming soon

Xbox 360 owners of Minecraft can now purchase and download the first of what will be a series of skin packs based on the long running BBC sci-fi series Doctor Who for $2.99.

This first skin pack allows Minecraft players to create characters that look like the First Doctor (William Hartnell), the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker), the Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker), the Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston), the 11th Doctor (Matt Smith) and the current 12th Doctor (Peter Capaldi). There's also the War Doctor (John Hurt), who has so far only appeared in the final episode of the 11th Doctor's final season and the 50th Anniversary Special. Sorry, fans of the 10th Doctor (David Tennant); he doesn't show up in this first skin pack.

Other characters that are a part of the pack include many of the Doctor's companions, including Rose Tyler, Amy Pond, her husband Rory Williams and the current companion to the 12th Doctor Clara Oswald. Of course, many of the Doctor's enemies are part of this skin pack, including the Daleks, their creator Davros. the Master, the Weeping Angels and more.

Players of the recently released Xbox One version of Minecraft won't be able to get this new Doctor Who skin pack immediately, but Microsoft says, " ... we'll have more to share on Doctor Who in Minecraft: Xbox One Edition soon." What do you think of the Doctor mixing it up in the Minecraft world?

  • In the meantime, check out the awesome Skin Pack 6. It has Killer Instinct, Super Time Force, Mirror's Edge characters and more! Fulgore!!!!!
  • Who is doctor who
  • Go to Netflix, look up "Doctor Who", and if you can watch though the mediocre first season, then the rest of the series cumulatively gets better. Then you will know.
  • A famous doctor who has a very famous show
  • Doctor Who is one of the most beautiful shows every made. It's pure joy.
  • It's a famous british program that has been running for over 50 years. It's one of the biggest programs in Britain and, since spreading across the pond, possibly even the world. It's a Sci-Fi show based on the premise of an alien (called a timelord) who calls himself the doctor travelling in time and space saving worlds.   Oh, and he's not called doctor who, he's just called the doctor. Doctor who is the title of the program as it's the question that everybody asks him.
  • I did not see that coming o_O
  • Nice
  • We need a WP version!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • +1
  • wait for windows 10 to get released for better Minecraft verison.
  • Paul mccartney is dead
  • The relevancy of this comment is dead
  • Isn't it ironic that every Beatle BUT Paul McCartney is dead to the Music industry? lol
  • I never understood why
  • Paul, and the rest of the Beatles, were on drugs. Paul probably thought he was actually dead. Now the world will never know why he thought he was a walrus..... lol
  • Or, yah know, free mods on the PC version Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • Well, Windows 10 will be coming to the Xbox One so yeah ;D
  • will be... soon... in the near future... But not now. And I doubt it would have a desktop mode, anyway. 
  • Who cares ....we want Minecraft for WP with Xbox companion
  • Large angel status
  • Hopefully in the future they'll have David Tennant!! Capaldi was a nice touch, though.
  • Windows 10 for the 10th doctor
  • Amy Pond!!! The Girl Who Waited...
  • Clara!!! The impossible girl...
  • Skin packs on 360 were better because you got to "try" them which really meant half the skins were available for free and you had to pay to unlock the other half. With the One's gimped demo system, this doesn't seem to be possible. Also, for example, you can't test drive texture packs anymore, which you could do on the 360...
  • This is a mod and texture reskin that has been possible for years on PC. And PC has Westeroscraft. Beat that, consoles!  
  • I don't Minecraft much, but after this skin pack, I just may,
  • I kind of bought Minecraft on Xbox One just so I could play with the Killer Instinct and Super Time Force skin pack. That wasn't the only reason, but it was the kicker that pushed me over the edge and made me splurge on the game (great decision as the game is fantastic).
