The Doctor Reunites with Susan in New Short (Sort Of)
The BBC released a short story this week that reunites (sort of) the Doctor and Susan. It’s written by Pete McTighe (“Kerblam!” and “Praxeus”) and entitled “Press Play”.
Check out a key extract of the moment below, and read the full thing here.
The Doctor jabbed a button on the console, then turned as a hologram fizzed into life. She felt a surge of emotion as she stared into the face before her.
The girl was in her mid-teens, with a shock of jet-black hair, a striped top and eyes twinkling with mischief. The sight of her cracked the Doctor’s dark mood like an egg.
“Hello Grandfather,” said the hologram.
The Doctor’s voice caught in her throat. “Hello Susan” she finally replied. This was clearly a recording made when her granddaughter was still a teenager. When they were travelling together, so many lifetimes ago.
