After about seven lifetimes as an absentee granddad, The Doctor checks in on Susan in post-Dalek-invasion UK
After seven lifetimes of not giving a tinker’s cuss, The Doctor decides, hey, wonder what my granddaughter’s up to. Oh, wouldn’t you know, she’s sending out a distress signal and has been for the last 30 years since the Dalek Invasion of Earth, the charred aftermath of which he abandoned her in with a potato farmer and one shoe. Another extraterrestrial intelligence did respond to her call, though, in the form of “Hope”, a sentient concept dispatched by the Guldreasi to provide assistance to mankind, on their terms, of course.
Susan Campbell, nee Foreman, has since had a son, Alex, a young, Bristolian revolutionary in danger of being led astray by Britain’s current roster of xenophobes, The Earth Watch. Councillor Faisal Jensen fancies Alex as his new poster boy to front the campaign against filthy alien influences, but little does Alex know that he himself is not wholly of this Earth. Perhaps a family reunion is in order.
