No Gallifreyan was safe from the Time War. While the Doctor resisted the call, his granddaughter Susan did her duty and signed up to fight the growing Dalek threat.

2.1 The Lost Son by Sarah Cassidy
Still reeling from meeting her Grandfather back on Earth, Susan is assigned to assist a mother in search of her son. Priestess Vesselina is the new ruler of her world, and someone Gallifrey is keen to recruit as an ally.

But strange forces are at work on Materos, and Susan's empathy becomes a weapon to be used against her...

2.2 The Golden Child by Peter Anghelides
A key ally to Gallifrey has winked out of existence. When Susan investigates the disappearance of this gifted politician and strategist, she finds someone else is also interested in the changed timeline.

The interloper is her grandfather. But this version of the Doctor is from the future of the Time War, and he's not the man Susan remembers...

Recorded on: 14-15 and 18-19 March 2024
Recorded at: The Soundhouse

 

Producer Heather Challands said: “It's my privilege to continue the story of Susan. Carole Ann Ford takes the lead so well and it's so exciting to have her front-and-centre in these stories, tackling the Time War. These episodes really confront Susan with the family that she's lost, and the family she still has! For the first time, she's going to meet the War Doctor. But will she approve of what her grandfather has become?"

Writer Sarah Cassidy, who makes her Big Finish debut with this box set, said: "I was so excited to write for Susan, especially knowing Carole Ann's playing her, because she was there at the start of Doctor Who, she's absolute royalty. And what I really loved is writing Susan at the age that Carole Ann is now. Who says that older women can't have adventures? Susan absolutely can."

Script editor Matt Fitton added: "This is a different angle on the Time War - it's much more to do with diplomacy and espionage. Susan's not a soldier; she uses her brain and her empathy for forging alliances with other species for the Time Lords. And I like to keep an aspect of the 1960s present, so we touch on characters, situations, and alien races that hark back to the time when Susan was travelling with the Doctor.

"Way back in the Eighth Doctor Adventures, Susan lost her son Alex to the Daleks and attributed some of the blame to the Doctor and his actions. And that trauma is a big driving force for why Susan took the Time Lords' invitation to do her duty in the Time War – to do this for Alex. However, in The Lost Son, we find a place where Susan’s empathy and her memories of Alex may end up being used against her."
