OverviewTegan met the Doctor travelling to the first day at her new job as a air hostess. After battling the Master, the Doctor regenerated, causing Tegan to be swept aboard the TARDIS while helping the Doctor recover. Once they made it out of the topsy-turvy Castrovalva, Tegan demanded to be returned to Heathrow Airport. However, things didn't go to plan...

Tegan was finally returned to Heathrow, where after solving the mystery of a missing jet, she stayed to start her job. However, she was fired from her job, causing her to travel to Amsterdam to visit her cousin, who had gone missing. She was soon dragged back into the Doctor's life, battling Omega, and rejoining Nyssa and the Doctor in the TARDIS.
|Tegan under the influence of the Mara|
Tegan, Turlough and the Doctor faced the Master once more before a trip to Gallifrey reunited the Doctor with his previous incarnations, where they teamed up to end Borusa's evil plans. A trip to a sea base brought Tegan face-to-face with Earth's previous inhabitants, the Silurians and the Sea Devils.

PersonalityTegan certainly knew how to use her mouth, often bickering with her fellow travellers, especially Adric, standing up for her beliefs and what she thought was right. Tegan recognised this by referring to herself as a "mouth on legs" in Earthshock.
Despite the bickering, Tegan still cared deeply about her fellow travellers, distraught when the Doctor couldn't save Adric's life in Earthshock and upset when Nyssa chose to remain on Terminus to care for the people with Lazar's disease.

Tegan was also similar to the Doctor in the sense that she wasn't a big fan of violence. This was the reason she left the TARDIS in Resurrection of the Daleks, although, just like the Doctor, Tegan resorted to violence on occasion.
