Doctor Who - ''One Day'' - Chapter 6Chapter 6
Susan lay quietly in her bed, unable to sleep. Blankly, she stared at the ceiling while inside her mind, her thoughts raced, deliberating on the choice that her grandfather presented to her. Roughly an hour had passed since the Doctor and Clara left and Susan was no closer to finding a conclusion. She turned on her side and stared at the Campbell family portrait to see her late husband looking back at her. Life with him had given her a previously unknown sense of security and stability.
