Doctor Who: Infinity was a game developed by Tiny Rebel Games following the success of its predecessor, Doctor Who: Legacy. It was released for iOS, Android and PC and Mac computers. The game was formatted in episodes and each episode was penned and directed by a different individual.
Unlike Legacy, voice acting formed part of the story and a variety of actors from the television series reprised their roles including Michelle Gomez and Katy Manning. Additionally, Infinity was not free to play, costing $11.99 from Steam.
Infinity had a soft release with the first three stories in late 2018 and then had the full release with a further two stories in November 2019.
