Top Ten Underrated Doctor Who Companions

The Top Ten

1 Martha Jones Martha Jones Martha Jones was one of the companions to the 10th doctor. Her actor is Freema Agyeman. Her first appearance is "Smith and Jones" and her last is "The End of Time."

Oh dear goodness, Martha is fantastic! She has been tested in all sorts of ways, by villains, by the Doctor, by her family and even by herself. Her courage is mind-blowing, and this young woman could get around and survive well enough without the Doctor. Ultimately, her decision to leave the Doctor's side was one that surprised many but showed how wise and brave she really is. She is so underrated mostly because she came after Rose. But did Rose detach herself, be tested or go it alone as much as Martha? No? I didn't think so. Martha is one of the best survivors -- and characters -- in the show.

Everyone always goes "Oh I hate Martha, Rose was waaay better."

That's NOT TRUE. Martha is smart, loyal, funny and is actually DOING something with her life before the Doctor comes in.

Also, she has enough guts to CHOSE to leave the Doctor, she is the first companion in modern who to do that.

A lot of people seem to give Martha hate, but she actually has some really good moments as a character. Some of my favorite Tennant-era stories were with her, too. - RickyReeves

Nobody ever seems to mention Martha very often, which surprises me because she is one of my favourite Doctor Who companions. She was very, very cool.

Gees, Mickey has a ruff time. I love that he ends up with Martha.

Mickey is awesome

5 Liz Shaw

Her time on the show was much to short. She had so much potential to be a greater companion. She didn't even get a proper send off!

6 Victoria Waterfield

She was a screamer though, it helped by destroying that weed creature in 'Fury From the Deep' - RickyReeves

7 Peri Brown

She was a decent companion though... - RickyReeves

I never really hear anyone's opinions about him, and he's certainly a better companion than those above him.
