“Doctor Who fans from all over the world have already flocked to Legacy – and with good reason!” Said Doctor Who comics editor, Andrew James. “So collaborating with the Legacy team to bring our comics companions into the game was a perfect opportunity. It’s a real delight for us that Gabby and Alice can now go on new adventures with the Doctor in between issues – and we look forward to sharing more comics-driven content through Legacy in the future!”
