Best Doctor Who Companions


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart

I Don't think he would be classed as a companion, but he's good! - RickyReeves

The Brigadier was the Doctor's oldest and best friend. Need I say more?

The Brig is the doctor's best friend even when he's a Cyberman he's saving someone!

She was the first to stand up to the doctor, ran. Over a dalek in a TRUCK and used her knowledge of history to trick the daleks.

Barbara Wright ran over a dalek in a truck. That's AWESOME.

24 Ian Chesterton
25 Peri Brown
26 Bernice Summerfield

All action gal.. Spin off seres of her own.

27 Danny Pink

He was good playing the cyberman in the last episode with clara - jaythomo

The most ANNOYING companion ever! Except for the bit where he's a cyberman, that's cool!

! Who doesn't like Susan? She is the best time lord/human companion who ever got onto Doctor Who!

The doctors first companion and teenage grand daughter

Would Susan count as a companion though? She was the Doctor's granddaughter...

I love the First Episodes, The Dead Planet, The Uneartly Child. They are all brilliant. No plot would make sense without her. The actor who played her was brilliant. The Script was Brilliant.

Mel is criminally underrated. She had great performances in Trial of a Time Lord, Delta and the Bannermen and Time and the Rani - RickyReeves

31 Madame Vastra

Amazing a talking lizard really?

Shes a good helper to the doctor - jaythomo

32 Bill Potts

She has been perfect to watch during the 10th Season of Doctor Who and I believe that she is one of the main reasons as to why the 10th season was Peter Capaldi's strongest and most entertaining

Very likeable companion

33 Romana II

Cute, Pretty and very tough and brave when she needed to be, Romanna II was the perfect counterpart for the Doctor

34 Nyssa

Why does everyone hate Nyssa? She wasn't the worst or the best. Just average. So why is she down here?

Daughter of the planet Trakken

Nyssa was one of the few comanions who was actually competent. She built a device to sabotage the Source on Traken, built a Zero cabinet with a little help, built a device to destroy the terreleptil's android, came close to breaking the Doctor out of arrest ON GALLIFREY of all places. She rarely screamed or panicked, and instead of leaving the series because she suddenly fell in love with the guest star of the week like so many others, she left to use her scientific knowledge to help the seriosuly ill, a compassionate and mature act.

35 Chang Lee

8th Doctor after serving the Master in the T.V. Movie

36 Grace Holloway
37 Vislor Turlough

The most ambiguous companion and that's why we love him. Definitely one of the most interesting comapnions ever.

38 Astrid Ferrier
39 Zoe Heriot

Zoe was a terrific companion. A pity she only had one year with the Doctor. Her staggering intelligence mixed balanced with an endearing naivete made her the only likeable teenage maths/physics genius in the history of science fiction.

She's a very fun character. Very sexy too
