He has no idea why Samantha Jones ran away from him.
Sam is homeless on the streets of the colony world of Ha’olam, trying to face what’s just happened between her and the Doctor. He’s searching for her, and for answers. While she struggles to survive in a strange city centuries from home, the Doctor comes across evidence of alien involvement in the local mega-corporation, INC — and is soon confined to a prison that becomes a hell of his own making.
Where did INC’s mysterious eye implants really come from? What is the company searching for in the deserts? What is hiding in the shadows, watching their progress?
Faced with these mysteries, separated by half a world, Sam and the Doctor each face a battle — Sam to rebuild her life, the Doctor to stay sane. And if they find each other again, what will be left of either of them?
- Seeing I was the twelfth BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures novel. It was written by Kate Orman and Jonathan Blum. It features the Eighth Doctor and Samantha Jones. Much like Deceit did before it with Ace, Seeing I returns companion Sam Jones to travel with the Doctor after having spent three or four years away from him. Unlike Ace (who spent her time travelling and in the Spacefleet), Sam spent most of her time on Ha’olam.
- Sam goes to join the Eurogen Village.
- The Eurogen Village is partially a project assisted by Livingspace.
- The Doctor uses data umphs to search through several companies data bases including Imogen and resulting in “Kisumu Interplanetary’s intranet collapsed.” Kisumu most likely refers to the Dione-Kisumu company. The data umphs also attack Gray Corporation’s systems.
- The Doctor explains to Sam what happened to Savar: “It happened back when I was a student. Savar was a Time Lord who went on a mission in his TARDIS, but something went wrong and he had to abandon ship.”
