Dr Rachel Jensen was scientist advisor for Group Captain Ian Gilmore of the Intrusion Countermeasures Group during the Shoreditch Incident of 1963. Allison Williams served as her assistant. She felt none too happy about this turn of events, not appreciating Gilmore's having requisitioned them against her will via the Peacetime Emergency Powers Act or his military attitude.

During World War II she had worked with computer pioneer Alan Turing's team of codebreakers, the Cambridge group and then worked in the British Rocket Group with "Bernard"). (MA: Who Killed Kennedy) When the Doctor appeared unexpectedly and took charge, his superior knowledge left Jensen and Allison as little more than an observers and commentators. She did however, examine the ruined body of a Imperial Dalek. (DW: Remembrance of the Daleks)

Jensen's presence in the group implies that she graduated from the University of Cambridge.

In 1964, while still a relatively young woman, she followed through with her half-joking threat to retire and raise begonias, and ended her career. In her autobiography, The Electrical Dreamer, she did not discuss the Shoreditch Incident at all. (DW: Remembrance of the Daleks, MA: Who Killed Kennedy)

Behind the Scenes

The first mention of The Electrical Dreamer, and excerpt from it, and of the ICMG occurred in Ben Aaronovitch's novelisation of his Remembrance of the Daleks.
