You’re the ONE that I want. “During all the years I’ve been taking care of you, you in return have been taking care of me….not any longer Susan, you are still my grandchild and always will be, but now…you are a woman too.”
Pairing: The Doctor, and Susan.
Relationship: Grandfather and Granddaughter. Susan was with the Doctor when he left Gallifrey and they have a bond like no other. They clearly mean the universe to each other and want what’s best for the other. The Doctor’s main priority was always Susan and her safety, she often meant more to him than worrying about himself or another world.
Pros: She had the ability to make him a better man and to bridge the gap between his alien ways and that of humanity. He took care of her and taught her of the stars. It’s wonderful to have the Doctor seen in a family relationship. The two of them together are very special.
Cons: Though he always did what he thought was best for Susan, it was heartbreaking to see him leave her behind with a man she barely knew. It was sad to see their bond broken.
Great Moment: We love their little argument in the Sensorites where she stands up to him and says she wants to be able to make her own decisions, she doesn’t want to be treated like a child anymore.
Did it last? Well he would see her again…one day…but she’ll always be a part of him anyway, no matter what, and no matter what regeneration he is in. The Doctor and his granddaughter are the most special of all relationships.
