The Top 10 Doctor Who Companions


1. Clara

Yeah.  I know.  She’s the new girl.  She hasn’t had enough time to prove herself.  I’m following a fad.  Bring on the hate.  I know she shouldn’t be at the top of the list because she hasn’t technically stood the test of time yet, but I can’t help it.  The Doctor’s little ‘test’ on the rooftop in the Christmas special sold me.  She’s one of the most clever companions he’s ever had, and is simply oozing personality.  She also has a good heart, a love for life, and fits perfectly into the void left by Amy and Rory, but yet is completely different from them.  All this, and she serves an important purpose into the Doctor’s life, more than just providing a companion.  The storyarch concerning her was one of the greatest pieces of writing Steven Moffat ever did in the show, and I can’t wait to see where the show goes with her and Capaldi.

Who’s your favorite companion?

    • I don’t consider River a regular companion. More of a recurring guest star. The Brigadier would’ve been the same except he was a regular with the third Doctor.

      As to Rose, I honestly don’t think she’s top ten material. I like her, and I think she’s a good character, but I just don’t think she’s as good as the others on this list. I honestly thought Billie Piper was much better in the Fiftieth Anniversary. I’d love to see her playing a character with that type of personality.

  1. Ok, I get what you are saying about River.

    Now about Rose. One of the things that makes her the best in my opinion is the story development. It starts off with a girl that is basically pacifist, and a man who is out for revenge. In the end they are able to help each other out in there way of thinking, she can fight in times that need it, and he can show compassion to even his worst enemy’s.

    And there is also the part that you don’t see with any of the other companions, was when she realizes that she has just ran away with a man that she dose not even know, trusting him with her life. Now she tells him to take her back, until she finds out she can trust him. And another thing… This is fun, keep it coming! :)
