It is now a couple of decades since the Dalek invasion of Earth was defeated, and Susan Campbell, a legend in a recovering Britain, is struggling to keep things together. Her husband is dead, her son Alex is leaning toward radical politics in university, there is a rising tide of populist anti-alien sentiment, and she can't admit to anyone, not even her son, that she is an alien herself. Desperate to see the Earth recover faster, Susan secretly contacts some aliens who promise aid. But are their motives altruistic? Doctor 8 drops in to have a snoop around her life, and ends up trying to clean up some of this mess. This is a reasonably entertaining drama.
