Doctor Who: Legacy is a freemium game released to the iOS, Android, and Facebook platforms in the wake of the 50th anniversary special. Initially billed as an adventure featuring the Eleventh Doctor at the crux of its events, it continued to update past his era's conclusion in 2013, then transitioned to his successor, the Twelfth Doctor. As character licensing rights were obtained, the game gradually expanded to feature every direct incarnation of the Doctor.

It currently allows users to replay the events of several episodes of Doctor Who's 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th and 8th series, using — if they so wish — different combinations of Doctors, companions, and featured guest stars than were present in the story as televised. Indeed, players can replay each episode however they wish, meaning that gameplay is different for all users, and even for each individual.

It is also notable for featuring mentions and appearances of original characters from the expanded Doctor Who universe outside from the TV show, including Alice Obiefune, Gabby Gonzalez, Frobisher, Charley Pollard and Liam McShane, with more in the plans to be added.

Each week, more episodes are added for players to go through, working backwards in the Doctor Who episode line-up. According to the app description, the developers will not stop adding episodes until they have reached An Unearthly Child.

Synopsis edit

When the Eleventh Doctor and Vastra arrive in Cardiff on 16 October 1978, they discover that the Earth has been prematurely invaded by the Sontarans, who have acquired time travel and are rewriting the planet's history. The Doctor must go back through his own personal timeline to defeat them before it's too late.

Gameplay edit

Gameplay takes the form of a role-playing puzzle game, whereas each player has the option of using one Doctor and up to five companions on their team. At the start of the game, only the Eleventh Doctor and Vastra are available to play as, but with each episode and adventure finished, more Doctors and companions are made available to have on the team. The adventures with "Paradox" in the title unlock more Doctors.

During the episodes and adventures themselves, players take turns with the enemy opponent to align colours together. Depending on the colour(s) aligned, a player's team will either heal, attack, or be attacked.

Each day of December 2013, promotion codes were added to the game's website's Advent Calendar. These codes could be inputted within the game to unlock costumes, characters, and other helpful items.

In early 2014, fans could vote on the game's Facebook page for which "Fan Favourite ally" would be added to the games' roster. The winners were Handles, Stormageddon, Adipose, & Martha Jones.
