Google gives Dr Who some doodle love

Google has commemorated the 50th anniversary of Dr Who by creating a doodle in honour of the popular television show. In addition to featuring cartoon versions of 11 of the characters, the doodle also has an interactive element in the form of a vintage video game.

After clicking on the play button in the doodle, you are prompted to select a character to use to solve a series of six puzzles as quickly as possible. In each of the six levels, you are required to collect a letter of the word Google, which then enables you to teleport to the next level via the phone booth.  

The 4,351 fans who signed the petition asking Google to create a Dr Who doodle will no doubt be delighted with the end product.  

Prime also recently celebrated the event with a competition that enabled fans to send a voice recording to the moon
