When Adam had an implant in his head from 200,000 (which, at the click of fingers, would open a small circle on his head, exposing his brain) he tried to record Internet codes on her phone while she was out.
After Adam tried to upload the Internet, the Ninth Doctor abandoned Adam back at his house in 2012. Adam's mum returned, saying time flies "just like that", clicking her fingers, then watching in horror as her son's head opened up. (TV: The Long Game)
Adam's mum died of a brain embolism shortly after Adam was returned to the 21st century. Adam blamed her death on the Doctor, who had erased the information that he had gathered from the future that could have saved her, and began planning an elaborate plot to get revenge on him.

Behind the scenes Edit
- The first name of Adam's mum is never given on-screen or in the credits, but Doctor Who: The Encyclopedia identifies it as Sandra. Actress Judy Holt previously played Sandra Mitchell in the British television show Children's Ward in the early 1990s while it was produced by Russell T Davies. Davies has elsewhere commented, "I think every show I’ve ever written fits into one big world."
