Doctor Who: Companions That Should Have Been
There have been a few characters on the new Doctor Who that I would have loved to see travel with The Doctor through space and time.
Sally Sparrow – Blink (Season 3 Episode 10)
I’m not exactly a fan of Martha. I don’t hate her, I just find her boring, and forgettable. I also got tired of her whinging, and pinning after the Doctor (don’t get me wrong, I fully understand why she liked him, but she was so damn whinny!). So when I first saw this episode I kept hoping that The Doctor would ditch Martha for Sally. Sadly, that didn’t happen.
Wilfred Mott – Voyage of the Damned (Season 4 Episode 0, first appearance)
In some ways he was a companion, just not ‘officially’. He’s probably one of my favorite characters, I loved this guy, and think he deserved a chance to travel with The Doctor.
Craig – The Lodger (Season 5 Episode 11, first appearance)
In some ways he actually did act as a companion, but he never got the full experience, and I think that would have been some fun to see. I loved this character, more of him would have been great.
The TARDIS Crew:
Something else that would be interesting, if The Doctor decided to travel with a (mostly) capable entourage. Let’s face it, the TARDIS is clearly meant for a crew, not just 1 or 2 extra people.
Characters I would love to see as the crew of the TARDIS…
Madame Vastra, Strax, and Jenny; I already love them together, and have been saying for awhile they should get a spin off series. Let’s not forget Jack Harkness. Technically he had already been a companion, I just wish he was around a lot longer.
I know a lot of people would probably add River Song to that crew, but to be perfectly honest, I get tired of her real fast. I like her character, just in small doses.
Who do you think would have been a great companion for the Doctor?
