In London in 1952, the Third Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith helped clean up in the aftermath of the previous day's defeat of a Xhinn invasion fleet. Tommy Ramsey helped to knit his local London community together after the violence of the past several days. The Doctor and he shook hands in front of St Luke's Cathedral, and were photographed. This photograph later attracted the Doctor's attention, causing him to come to 1952 London several days earlier. (PROSE: Amorality Tale)
