The Doctor's Companions
But thanks to the vagaries of writing, characterization, performance, and chemistry, not all companions are created equal; some favorites go on to rival even the Doctor in terms of popularity, while others can range from blandly likable to actively annoying. However, it never felt like the writers truly committed to the idea of Nardole as a companion as much as they did to him as a season-long source of comic relief. Actress: Mandip Gill Companion to: 13 Introduced as a young police officer who wants to take on larger assignments but is stuck responding to petty calls, Yaz is caring and responsible and committed to justice. Ultimately, with her smarts and her bravery and her sense of justice and compassion, Yaz most recalls Martha, but has a lot less to do. With an arc like that, no wonder Bill would rather be a space puddle than continue on in the series.
Companion was a somewhat vague term used to describe the Doctor 's closest friends. The Eleventh Doctor told Amy Pond he travelled with companions to see the universe through the eyes of somebody who hadn't experienced it all already. TV : Amy's Choice Once they left the Doctor's company, most companions used their newfound perspective of life and morality to help others; Sarah Jane Smith once noted that with them around "the Doctor" - their ideology and legacy - would never die. TV : Death of the Doctor Rose Tyler felt she had learned a "better way of living life" from her time spent with the Ninth Doctor , and earned a new resolve to take action, to make a stand when things needed changing. TV : The Parting of the Ways. Because the term was a shortening of the expression "travelling companion", most companions did in fact voyage with the Doctor in the TARDIS. Depending on the situation, other words were used to describe the same relationship — most frequently, "assistant".
In the long-running BBC television science fiction programme Doctor Who and related works, the term " companion " refers to a character who travels with, or shares the adventures of, the Doctor. In most Doctor Who stories, the primary companion acts as an audience surrogate. They provide the lens through which the viewer is introduced to the series. The companion character often furthers the story by asking questions and getting into trouble, or by helping, rescuing, or challenging the Doctor. This designation is applied to a character by the show's producers and appears in the BBC's promotional material and off-screen fictional terminology.
