    Who is your favorite Doctor Who companion?

    Everyone has a favorite doctor, but which of his many companions would you say is your favorite and why?

    Sarah Jane! She's always been my absolute favorite, even back when I was a little kid and just started watching classic on VHS (though Ace was a close second because she blew things up). I still love Ace, though for second favorite it would be a toss up between Donna (the ultimate sass) and Amy Pond (awesome and I totally have a crush on her). Romana also holds a very special place in my heart; seriously, she's smarter than the Doctor and has the best wardrobe ever.  Rose is just generally awesome, and Martha was super-relatable to me at that point in my life. Pretty much everybody rocks except for Adric (I cheered at the end of Earthshock) and Mel (she's just is too gratingly cheerful to me). I didn't like Peri at first, but after going back and watching/rewatching some Six serials I appreciate her sass a lot more than when I was a kid.

      Glad you mentioned Donna and her sass; she's my personal favorite.

    Tough choice, as most of the companions brought something special to the mix. If you are including the extended universe of the Big Finish audio dramas (and I certainly hope so, they are fantastic) then I would have to say Charlotte Pollard, the Edwardian adventuress!

    The actress is phenomenal, and she plays opposite Paul McGann as the 8th Doctor. The chemistry they have is beautiful and amazing, and I have listened to the episodes over and over again.

      They can be from anywhere in the who-verse (including the audio dramas and books). Great answer!

    From the good Doctor Who? This is a tough choice. While Sarah Jane (Elizibeth Sladen) was a very good character she was like the BBC scream queen or some kind of damsel in distress more often than not, and was woefully scripted in one of most important episodes in Who history: Genesis of the Daleks. But she did have some great ideas and managed to get herself out of a lot of scrapes by herself. Plus she recieved many treats in her debut, as she learnt the Doctor's first false identity (John Smith) in the first episode featuring a Sontaran, 'The Time Warrior'.

    What little I saw of Jo Grant was amazing, as she was very intellectual and managed to grasp what the Doctor did and how he went about it. Out of all the companions she's very mature and is quick to understand travel throughout time and space.

    Harry was my favourite male companion because he had some great sarcastic jokes and managed to make him more useful than others throughout the entire series. Again, I didn't see much of him but he what little I did was entertaining.

    But my all time favourite will be Romana II, who Tom Baker would marry not long after they were both done with Who. Because of the chemistry they had in the series and the reincarnated Romana was equal in intellect (as well as stubbornness - she didn't let a little thing like slavery by the Daleks worry her), I would say she was the most believable of them all. Plus she was saucier than an explosion in a Heinz factory.

      I also love the companions who can give it back to the doctor as good as they get it. It's so much more fun than a companion who just sort of follows him around.
