Publisher: BBC Worldwide

Full disclosure: I sort of like Doctor Who.
I'm by no means a rabid fan of the series, but I've watched enough to know that Billie Piper is the Bad Wolf, Rory's always dying, and bow ties are cool.
Even so, the majority of the fan service in Doctor Who: Legacy soared right over my head.
In this puzzler, Tiny Rebel Games focuses on the sixth and seventh series of the rebooted sci-fi series. Even within this narrow field of source material, though, there are constant references to minor characters, obscure aliens, and familiar locations.
But if you look past all that British set dressing, you'll discover that Tiny Rebel has borrowed liberally from Japanese freemium success story Puzzle & Dragons here.
Doctor Who: Legacy is a real treat for Whovians, and a satisfying but derivative RPG-puzzler for the rest of us
