Mrs Aitken (PROSE: Survival) was a resident of Perivale and the mother of Dave.

One Sunday in June 1989, she was preparing dinner whilst Dave was washing the car in front of their home. She called to him from the window and told him that dinner was on the table. That was the last time she saw him. While she stood outside looking for Dave, the Seventh Doctor and former Perivale resident Ace McShane walked past. The Doctor stopped to right Dave's overturned water bucket and tipped his hat to her before continuing on their way. (TV: Survival)
