After escaping the gallows, an unsure Jamie was urged to follow the Doctor, Ben Jackson and Polly into the mysterious TARDIS. 

Travelling with Ben and Polly

Jamie would be whisked through time and space, the first destination being Atlantis, where he and Ben were put to work in the mines, but escaped with the help of fellow prisoners Sean and Jacko. Right after this, in The Moonbase, Jamie and the others visited the Moon in 2070, where Jamie gained concussion, where while in the Monbase's sick bay, he encountered a Cyberman for the first time, initially believing it to be the legendary "Phantom Piper".  To be added
