Aaaaand that’s it. That’s all I got. The BBC apparently posted a trailer for a game called Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock, due for PS3 and the PS Vita at some point, then immediately took the trailer down, and now all we nerd sites are left in the unfortunate position of needing to report the news that there’s going to finally be a Doctor Who game for modern consoles, but we have no art or video or information or anything to tell you. Sorry about that. If it makes you feel any better, apparently Matt Smith and Karen Gillan made a surprise appearance at the Way Station in Brooklyn last week, which is of course where I held the lovely TR meet-up last night (thanks to everyone who came out!). They didn’t tell anyone, no one knew they were coming, but apparently they heard of the Who-themed bar and stopped by and everyone who goes to the Way Station on a regular basis was devastated they missed. At least Smith had the decency to sign the inside of the Way Station’s TARDIS bathroom, though.
But anyways… yeah. Doctor Who game for PS3. Eventually. Moving on. (Via Kotaku)
UPDATE:The trailer’s back out, and I posted it above. It still doesn’t explain anything, though. Thanks to everyone who sent this (and the correctly angled Matt Smith signature pic) in.

He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
