The Doctor takes Ace to 1926 Africa. He leaves her there while he takes the TARDIS into the future to pick up his former companion, Victoria Waterfield. He takes her to 1868 London to sign papers dealing with her father's estate, and to visit her aunt Margaret. After returning Victoria to her adopted home, he goes back to pick up Ace. Later in his personal timeline, he visits Margaret in 1909, shortly before her death.
