AS THE DOCTOR’S ONLY KNOWN LIVING RELATIVE, SUSAN LEFT GALLIFREY WITH HER GRANDFATHER AND IT WAS HER BRILLIANCE THAT BROUGHT BARBARA AND IAN INTO THEIR LIVES. SUSAN HAD METAL ABILITIES WHICH WERE USED ONLY WHEN THE STORY WARRANTED IT AND UNFORTUNATELY SHE WAS REDUCED TO A SCREAMER INSTEAD OF A BRILLIANT ALIEN.

HAVING BEEN LEFT BEHIND ON A FUTURE EARTH WITH HER LOVE DAVID CAMPBELL, IT WOULD SEEM HER STORY ENDED THERE BUT SHE WAS REVISITED BY THE 8TH DOCTOR IN A BBC NOVEL WHERE THE DELGADO VERSION OF THE MASTER REACTIVATED SLEEPER CELLS OF DALEKS AND ENDED WITH SUSAN CLAIMING HIS TARDIS AND GOING INTO THE UNIVERSE ONCE MORE, HAVING LOST DAVID.

BUT THEN AGAIN, BIG FINISH DECIDED SHE HAD MORE TO TELL AND WHEN THE DOCTOR FINALLY REVISITED HER SHE HAD  A SON, A STORY REVISITED A COUPLE OF TIMES ESPECIALLY IN THE 8TH DOCTOR’S FINAL TWO PART STORY, TO THE DEATH, WHEN THE DALEKS ARE INVADING ONCE MORE.

HER ONLY TV RETURN WAS IN THE FIVE DOCTORS WHERE SHE TEAMED UP WITH HER GRANDFATHER ONCE MORE BEFORE FALLING VICTIM TO THE OLD CURSE OF A TWISTED ANKLE; THE MORE THINGS CHANGE…….
