I just finished the fourth season finale last night, so now I'm almost completely caught up with the show.  I'll just have to track down the Christmas episode….

Anyway, I was wondering how everybody ranks the Doctor's different companions.  Personally, I like Rose the best, followed closely by Donna.  Martha is cool and all, but I just didn't connect with her quite as much as the other two.

Who is your favorite?

This is my awesome signature…please don’t step on it.

Rose, followed by Captain Jack, then Martha. Donna is….how many companions have there been? We'll say there have been about 40, so I'll stick her at about #38. I'm sure there has been someone worse.

Dude, Donna kicks ass!  I love her sassiness.

I wasn't really counting Capt Jack when I was thinking about this, but I really like him as well.  If we're including all the secondary people as well, then I really like Mickey for some reason.

To me, a companion is someone that went along with the Doctor. Jack and Mickey both would qualify. Whereas someone like Rose's mom would be a secondary character that is not a companion.


Anyway, I can't stand Catherine Tate. She looks like a 40 year old woman trying to play the role of a 20 year old. Her sassiness was the only redeeming quality of that character (That, and her role in the last episode was phenomenal). I just really didn't feel a connection between her and the Doctor in the entire season, up until the last episode. I even thought Martha with her freaky stalker like tendencies had more of a connection. But despite any problems with the character (Which admittedly was at least better than her Runaway Bride character), really it was just the actress that annoyed the crap out of me.

My favourite companion has to be the Brigadier followed by Martha then K-9
And on the subject of companions worse than Donna I can’t think of many but Adric and Mel do come to mind

Having just heard the second part of Orbis (which for those of you who don’t know  it’s the first CD in the new season of Paul McGann audios) Lucie Miller has just shot way up my list

Rose is first of course, and then Captain Jack, who is followed by Donna, and then Martha. I never really enjoyed Martha as a character. Rose on the other hand I loved everything about her.

For the recent series Rose has to be top of the list. Martha did a very good job and Donna, well, she tried her best! The Colin Baker & Sylvester McCoy years never did it for me and none of the companions stick out. When it comes to the Peter Davidson era, I have to say Peri Brown- the low cut tops she wore were more than my teenage hormones could take!

But since 'my' Doctor is Tom Baker – the best companions? Sarah Jane Smith & K-9 all the way!

I would describe Peri as more as Colin Baker’s companion she was only in 2 Peter Davidson stories

Rose for sure.

while all of the companions won me over by the end of their run on the show Rose has something special. I think its her enjoyment and excitment towards the Doctor and the adventures that made me love her. She just seemed the only one who really got him and shared his passion.

The scenes specifically where the Doctor is explaining stuff to everyone, they are all giving him odd looks, and she is glowing with excitment. I always found it infectious.

With the new series I would say Rose for the first year and Captain Jack. Martha would be my least favorite. From the older series of course Sarah Jane Smith and for anybody who listens to Big Finish Bernice Summerfield which is a female Captain Jack. I wish those two could meet.
