Bill Potts wants her life to be about more than serving chips. The cleverest person in the university canteen but never a student, Bill lives with her foster-mum Moira, and thinks exciting things happen to other people.
But when Bill makes a connection with student Heather, she soon finds herself dragged into a creepy and dangerous world that revolves around a mysterious and inexplicable puddle. There’s something wrong with her reflection… but what? In searching of the answer, she discovers that the lecturer who’s taken her under his wing is actually a time travelling alien who’s about to take her on the trip of a lifetime to get to the truth!
I know you know lots of stuff about… well, basically everything. But do you know any sci-fi?
This impossible man, calling himself only ‘The Doctor’, promises to be Bill’s personal tutor. And now anywhere in time and space is the backdrop to the most unique education that the universe can offer.
After many adventures with the the Doctor, Bill becomes trapped in another time zone aboard a Mondasian colony ship and is converted into a Cyberman! Realising that she has no hope of returning to her old life, Bill agrees to stay with the Doctor in a last stand against a growing Cyber army, in the hope of protecting the remaining human residents of the colony ship. Although they are successful in destroying the Cybermen, the Doctor is apparently killed in the attack and a distraught Bill is found by Heather. Heather has left her ‘tears’ behind. She is now connected to Bill. Heather restores Bill’s human form, on the condition that she now travel the universe with her. Believing the Doctor to be out of action, they lay his body to rest in the TARDIS and Bill says her goodbyes…but not before leaving her own tears behind… The pilot has found a passenger.
