Introduction:

Welcome to the Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins trophy walkthrough!
Developed by Kaigan Games and published by Maze Theory; Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins is an investigative horror adventure game where you need to search through texts, emails, pictures, and video files to solve the mystery of two missing people.

Video guides of this walkthrough are fine as long as I am credited in the video and the guide linked!

Tips and Strategies:

The game only autosaves when you add a clue to your inventory.  Plan accordingly if you’re not going to do this in one sitting.

A full written text walkthrough is provided below, and if you enjoy my work, please consider donating to my Ko-fi.

Trophy Walkthrough:

There are JUMPSCARES in this game.

Do whatever symbols you want until you’re in the phone
Decline the call – Bronze Well that was rude… unlocked
Click the Osgood icon (from now on, I’ll just say “Osgood”)
Click the yellow bar to bring up your responses.
This sounds weird, but I’m not sure how either
You expected me to pick up this phone?
That’s rather presumptuous of you
Intriguing!  How can I help?
Gold We’ve got a game… unlocked
Where do I start?
Great!  How do I do that?
Find a picture of Lawrence.  Got it.

NOTE: Whenever you’re in text conversation with Osgood, wait for her to finish texting before you go back into the phone to investigate. Otherwise you may miss story triggers or her unlocking more of the phone. It’s not game breaking if you miss these things, but not waiting for her to finish texting is ultimately just a waste of time.

Home Screen

Answer the call and let it play – Gold Call it a day, Mr Nightingale! unlocked
Osgood
Sorry, I couldn’t hang up!
No problem!  How do I do that?
I can do that! I’m on it.
Home Screen

Close out the game and BACK UP YOUR SAVE.  Unfortunately, this is the closest autosave to a timed portion coming up.  It’s good to have something to fall back on if you run out of time.

Gallery
Wester Drumlins
Put the six puzzle pieces together – they will snap together when placed correctly
Click through all nine pictures, scanning (img_411) on the way (clue: the angel)
Back out – Silver There’s something on the phone! unlocked

A timer has started.  Get through the next conversation quickly.

Osgood
There’s something ON THE PHONE!
Wait, this sounds familiar!
You know what it is, don’t you?
A weeping what now?
That sounds pretty dire!
Can we just…delete it?
Great idea!  Show me how!
Home Screen

You now have to delete the four corrupted fragments you found.  This is a timed segment, but it’s not clear how much time you have – the phone will just slowly lose all its colors.  So do it as quickly as possible.  Even “pausing” the game (bringing up the objectives menu) will not stop the timer.  The game will continue on if you fail this (the phone will reboot in “safe mode”) but you’ll be locked out of future trophies if you don’t do this.

Browser
Into the Unknown
Click the moth picture (should be the top one – you can’t mess it up)
Click the word “CUBE”
Click “NO”
Click “I have my own path”
Delete the glitched file – this works like the scan, except instead of holding you need to spam it. You’ll need to do this a few times to fill the bar. You’ll also have to deal with a few pop up windows on the way; click whatever you need to click (should be “not interested” “I’m fine, thanks” “proceed”) to get out of the ads.
Home Screen

Ignore Osgood’s text – it’ll just eat into your time

Gallery

When the messages shuffle, you’ll need to find its new location – it’s randomized, so keep clicking the bars until you find it
Home Screen

Chat
Open Mo’s message
Scroll up until you reach the glitched part
Delete the glitched message
You’ll be thrown to random parts of the text while doing this, and the final time you’ll have to close a bunch of pop up windows
Home screen

Delete the home screen
Osgood
That was…way too close
Should I expect more of these things…?
Upload clue – the Angel
The same creature I fought off earlier?

Upload clue – Lawrence’s plan – Gold Lawrence’s plan… unlocked
Poor Lawrence.
Does it?  Could you summarise?
Oh, besides that I mean
It’s up to us then
Lawrence wanted to use their own reflections against them
Answer the phone and wait for it to hang up
But three calls can’t be coincidence
Who do you think is behind this?
There must be a reason for the calls!
Lawrence’s phone came into my possession?
Could it be Natasha?
Maybe it hasn’t happened yet
We need to help her!
Click the connect button
Answer the phone and wait for the call to hang up
Home Screen

Chats
Open the Mr Flint chat (not the plus symbol)
Scroll down until you reach a picture, then scan it (clue: Flint’s bad side)
Home Screen

Consider backing up your save here; you’re coming up on another timed portion soon.  If you didn’t have a problem with the first one, you should be okay; the upcoming one is easier, because there’s only one piece of business instead of four, but it’s still a one-shot thing.

Osgood
The Angels got to Flint!
Osgood…?
Hey, we’re in this together – I can help!
How did Ayesha get in?
Bring it on!  How can I help?
Find an image of Flint? Got it. On it.
Upload clue – Flint’s bad side
No, wait for backup!
Click the connect button
Can I help?
What?! Get out and barricade the door!
To trap the Angels with their own reflections!
Can you watch them with Ayesha’s cameras?
Maybe we can rotate some of the cameras?
Answer the phone and wait for the call to hang up
Click the camera icon in the top right of the bar above the Osgood chat
Unlock each camera, then position them to look at the windows of the house.  You’ll know you’re in the right spot because the tracking box will turn green and say LOCKED

Hey…Are you there?
Please…say something –

So you’re okay?
Will the disco ball hold in that position?
It’s not your fault
What about Lawrence?
Thanks Osgood
Understatement.
You’re welcome.
Right back at you 🙂
Answer the call and wait for it to hang up
Let the credits run.
After the post-credits cutscenes, Gold Happy ever after… and 40-platinum Clever Clogs! will unlock.
