Other Guides to this Story
The first Doctor looks like a human in his sixties. He is physically quite frail, but has a keen intellect. He is paternalistic towards his granddaughter, and has a degree of arrogance towards others. At this point, he still feels bound by the Time Lord ethic of non-interference.
Susan Foreman is the Doctor's granddaughter. She and the Doctor left their home planet in Lungbarrow (Virgin New Adventures novel). Susan adopted the surname Foreman whilst staying on Earth during 1963.
