An accomplished scientist called down from the University of Cambridge by the Brigadier, Dr Elizabeth Shaw joined UNIT in their fight against the first Nestene invasion. After helping repel the Autons, she remained to help the Doctor try and fix the grounded TARDIS, meeting Silurians, deadly alien ambassadors and Primords along the way. She returned to Cambridge after telling the Brigadier that all the Doctor wanted was someone to pass him test tubes and tell him “how brilliant" he is.
