Author's Summary: The Doctor takes Susan to Akhaten.
Characters/Pairings: Susan Foreman, First Doctor
Recced because: This is the story of how the Doctor and Susan ended up on Akhaten. It's really interesting to see how different he acts to when he visits with Clara. It's great characterisation as to what he and Susan were like before they spent a few months living in London in the 1960s.
“Oh, but those are just facts and figures, Grandfather. You can’t record the smell of an alien flower, or the taste of a rare rich berry, or the feel of alien silk as it drapes around your shoulders. Those are the things I want to keep and remember.”
“Oh, Susan, my dear, you are far too sentimental.”
“And I think you are too, though you hide it deeper.”
