Doctor Who Companions

David Tennant decided to leave the Doctor Who TV series and the role he played of The Doctor in 2009. The 10th Doctor was killed in the episode The End of Time part 2 on 1st January 2010.

Doctor Who Companions very rarely get killed off so Donna Noble the companion in this episode was sent back to her family without any memory of her time with The Doctor. Personally I thought this was worse than her being killed.

Matt Smith then became The Doctor

David Tennant regenerated into the 11th Doctor and the actor Matt Smith took of the role of The Doctor in the following series of the Doctor Who TV Show.

Now we have Peter Capaldi as the newest Doctor.

The Doctor Who Companions do not get Killed Off

They usually leave of their own accord because traveling in the TARDIS becomes too stressful or they are forced to leave due to circumstances.

  • Rose Tyler got trapped in another universe.
  • Martha Jones left to stay with her family after their terrible experience with The Master
  • Donna Noble had to be sent back to her family with her memories erased for her own safety
  • Amy Pond and Rory were trapped in the past by the Weeping Angels

Doctor Who

Doctor Who is a science fiction television series from the BBC in UK.

I love this program as many adults do. I have included lots of videos and photos from this awesome TV series. There are also Dr Who products and gifts that you can look at and buy if you wish.

Some of these Doctor Who products are DVD Box sets and DVDs, Toys, action figures,The TARDIS, Daleks, and the Master

David Tennant

David Tennant has been voted as the best actor to play The Doctor in the Science Fiction TV Series Doctor Who. I have also included lots of photos of David Tennant as The Doctor, and characters Martha Jones, Rose Tyler and Donna Noble.

Doctor Who was first broadcast in 1963 by the BBC in Britain. The first actor to play The Doctor was William Hartnell. When he decided to leave the very popular show the writers and producers at the BBC came up with a very clever idea in order to continue the series.

The Doctor could regenerate into another human body as he was an alien from the planet Gallifrey. This way the memories of The Doctor as a Time Lord would be intact from his previous regenerations.

But he would have his own unique characteristics with each new incarnation into a human body. This way the show for another twenty six years until 1989. Seven different actors played The Doctor during this time.

Doctor Who TV series returned to Television in 2005 with Christopher Eccleston playing The Doctor. The Doctor a 900 year old Time Lord

The Doctor is a Time Lord and an alien from the planet Galifrey

There was a Time War going on between his home planet and other races. In order to save the rest of the planets and galaxies the Time War had to come to an end.

The Doctor ended the Time War by blowing his home planet Gallifrey up and killing everyone involved. But by doing this everyone on his planet died including his children, family and friends.

He believes he is the last Time Lord alive

The TARDIS and Doctor Who

The Doctor wanted to die along with his own race but was saved by the TARDIS.

When he regenerated he came to Earth, his favourite planet.

Christopher Eccleston played the character of The Doctor in this regeneration, his 9th since he was born 900 years ago.

There he met a teenager called Rose Tyler.

They spent the year together and she helped him work through his anger, sadness and guilt at the situation he had just come from.

Gallifrey, The Doctor and the Time War

The Daleks were involved in the Time War but some of them managed to escape.

They returned and The Doctor was trying to stop them taking over the Galaxy and Earth once again. He was no match for the Daleks and was about to die.

He knew this so he locked Rose in the TARDIS and it brought her back to earth.

But she managed to get back to help The Doctor with the help of Mickey, her childhood friend and her mother. By doing this she put herself in danger and was about to die.

The Doctor saved Rose and defeated the Daleks, they both returned to earth in the TARDIS.

Because he saved Rose he killed the human body he was in and so in order to save his life as a Time Lord he regenerated into the10th Doctor and a new body.

David Tennant as The Doctor

The actor David Tennant

The actor David Tennant then took over the role of The Doctor in 2005. The Doctor in this new body and his companion Rose Tyler went out into space on new adventures in the TARDIS.

David Tennant starred in the Doctor Who TV Series as the tenth Doctor for the next four years making forty seven episodes of the TV series.

Readers of the Doctor Who Magazine voted his depiction of The Doctor as the best ever. There had been ten actors up for nomination.

The TARDIS is a Spaceship and Time Machine

This stands for Time and Relative Dimension in Space. The TARDIS Money Box is an exact replica from the show.

It looks good as an ornament on a table or shelf. The Money box is made of plastic but it looks like wood. This is because of the way the grain is painted on the box - ingenious

The inside of the TARDIS is a lot bigger than the outside which is in the shape of a 1960’s police box from London in the UK. The TARDIS is invisible to those who are not aware of its existence. This is Possible Because of Time Lord Technology

It is called the chameleon circuit. Another very useful component within the TARDIS is its ability to allow anyone else who travels inside to understand all the languages in every other planet.

This is called the universal translator. The Doctor knows over Six Million Languages so does not need it. The TARDIS is also a sentient being which is capable of feeling The Doctor and his companions’ feelings.

Anyone who watches and loves the TV show Doctor Who will know that the TARDIS is a major part of the series. Even the noise it makes when it lands and takes off is a signature of the show and instantly recognizable by both the characters and the audience,

Doctor Who: The TARDIS Money Box

PJ bought this money box for himself last Christmas.

  • This TARDIS money box is eight inches tall and has some awesome sounds effects.
  • It also looks exactly like the TARDIS from the TV show Doctor Who.
  • When you open the lock on the front door the top of the TARDIS opens with the sound of a clip from the new series of Doctor Who with Matt Smith.
  • When you close the door of the money box the sound of the TARDIS landing is played.

My Nephew is also an Ardent Doctor Who Fan

He has everything from all the DVDs, the Books, Action figures and all the other items. To be honest if I was a kid I would buy them all too. I do have all the DVD Box Sets and some of the books.

Hi, I still prefer David Tennant, I can't quite get used to this new one, perhaps it's because he's a bit too young, great info and it makes me want to see it all again! cheers nell

Yes Nell it is a shame David Tennant left he was a great Doctor, but I do like Matt Smith as well. He is young but he plays the character a lot older. And it helps that Stephen Moffat is the head writer love his stories.

I have seen Dr Who evolve over the years - I have just seen the show on and off - the Daleks are constant. David Tennant plays a great young Doctor. Thanks for the excellent review.

Ah that is a shame Maita that you can not watch the Doctor Who series. They show it on the BBC America station out there. It is the best science fiction show ever made.

when I initially read these hubs a few months back I hadn't seen dr Who in ten years or more, but as of late I have watched all of the last two series. I prefer the newest actor but that may be a side effect of the much better writing this season and the change in EP.

Off to read the rest (again)

Yes Stephen Moffet took over as head writer of Doctor Who when Matt Smith became the 11th Doctor.

The episodes he wrote during the David Tennant years are some of my favourite too. Silence in the Library, The Empty Child, Girl in the Fireplace and of course my all time favourite one, BLINK and the weeping angels.
