Have you spotted the Doctor Who Easter egg in Assassin’s Creed?
Doctor Who references have been appearing all over time and space since 1963.
The BBC science fiction show is one of the longest-running and best-loved that has ever hit television screens and has accordingly won armies of fans across the globe who have paid homage to the series in their own way through the decades. Be that through references to the show in other TV programmes, in movies and franchises or in literature and art.
But, the world of video games is not immune to this phenomenon of dropping in the occasional Doctor Who reference so it seems.
And thanks to this intrepid gamer who’s dived deep into the depths in Assassin’s Creed, here is another Doctor Who Easter egg to add to the collection in popular culture.
Yep, take a dive and follow the coordinates in this video and you’ll end up seeing something rather familiar sunken into the sea bed.
Is that, yes, it is… It’s the TARDIS!
OK, it doesn’t look like it’ll be travelling through space or time anytime soon, and it’s got a bit of water damage… but that is definitely the Doctor’s ship right there.
So there’s something to go looking for while you wait for season 14 to come on air.
Doctor Who will return to TV in November 2023 with three 60th anniversary specials written by returning showrunner Russell T Davies. The episodes will star David Tennant as the Fourteenth Doctor as well as a returning Catherine Tate an Donna Noble. Yasmin Finney will appear as Rose and the trio will battle against an enemy played by Neil Patrick Harris.
Season 14 of the show is expected to start around the festive season of 2023 with Ncuti Gatwa’s first episode as the Fifteenth Doctor alongside his new companion Ruby Sunday, played by former Coronation Street star Millie Gibson.
The episodes will be the first as part of a new deal between the BBC and Disney to make Disney+ the international home of Doctor Who.
