Happy Birthday William Hartnell ( or it would be, if he weren't dead)

The late, great William Hartnell was born on this day in 1908. Time to watch a sixties classic in celebration, I think...

I think that's how it should be done. Whenever someone who has done a BBC show has a birthday (living or not), the BBC should broadcast a show of that actor.
Maybe not just the BBC.

Watching Unearthly Child. Do you know what happens to the Doctor's granddaughter Susan? As in, her ultimate fate. Do they say?

Susan is left behind by the Doctor on 22nd century Earth at the end of The Dalek Invasion of Earth, having fallen in love with freedom fighter David Campbell. Decades later, in the eighth Doctor audio adventures, we learn that David has died but that he and Susan had a son, Alex Campbell. Susan has become a prominent figure in the running of the rebuilt Earth. She and Alex appear in a couple more eighth Doctr audios, and Alex eventualy dies fighting the Daleks (who have returned) alongside the Doctor's companion Lucie Miller. According to the audio All Hands on Deck, Susan was later summoned to fight in the Time War, but her eventual fate remains unrecorded.

Thanks! That's really interesting. I figured she'd been killed since the Doctor said he was the last Time Lord often during the start of the new series, but I wasn't sure how much information was given. They're starting to bring some of the Eighth Doctor books to Kindle, and with Big Finish I should be able (eventually) to find some of this. Really appreciate it.

Well, bear in mind that we were never actually tod for certain that Susan was a Time Lord; not all Gallifreyans were...

I think I sort-of knew that, but I wasn't clear. It's sort of like Malthusians/Oans, I guess.
Then, I always assumed that he was really talking about Gallifreyans in general, since I thought originally the planet had been destroyed.
