Altea Orsi was Giovanni Lucio's partner.
When the Earth suddenly became a dead world in 1925, the Tenth Doctor tracked down the source of the change to 3rd century Wales. Taking Rose Tyler and Altea there in the TARDIS, they found that Lucio had allied himself with the Hajor, who promised him control of the ancient Roman Empire. When the Tenth Doctor showed him that his actions led to the Earth becoming a dead world, he tried to make up for it and rescue Orsi, but was killed by a Roman soldier. When the Hajor were defeated, the Doctor took Orsi back to her own time. (COMIC: The Futurists)
