The Top 10 Doctor Who Companions

Doctor-rory

4. Rory

Yes.  I know.  I did place Rory above Amy.  Let me tell you why.  Amy may be, in some respects, the perfect companion to the Doctor, but Rory marked the departure from Doctor-companion romances that were getting a bit ridiculous.  They even hinted at it with Amy, but when Rory showed up, that ended.  He’s also one of the most amazing men in fiction, although I can’t exactly tell you why without giving away several spoilers.  It will suffice to say that their love story is one in which Rory shows a remarkable amount of self-sacrifice and devotion.  So even though he may not appear too useful in terms of physical prowess or intelligence, his character more than makes up for it.

    • 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! :)
