Amy, Rory and River first encounter Canton Everett Delaware III when he is an old man in present day America. After the Doctor gets struck down in Utah, he gives them help and information, revealing that although they haven’t met him before, he has already met them…
The “young Canton,” who the Doctor, Amy, Rory and River befriend in 1969 is a charismatic former FBI agent. Quick witted and resourceful, he’s not intimidated by authority and speaks his mind even if it means offending the President of the United States. No wonder the Doctor likes him!
