Since the return of Doctor Who to the BBC in 2005, the Doctor has been graced with an ongoing parade of comely companions. Here they are, in and out of character.
Rose Tyler, companion to the ninth and tenth incarnations:
She was played by model/pop star Billie Piper.
Next came Martha Jones beside Ten.
Played by the lovely Freema Agyeman:
Donna Noble actually first appeared with Ten in a Christmas special prior to Martha, but joined as a regular the following season.
Comedienne Catherine Tate brought Donna to life.
After losing Donna, Ten traveled alone until his song came to an end. After regenerating into his eleventh incarnation, he met Amelia Pond:
After leaving the show, Karen Gillan was cast in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy as the villainous sister of Zoe Saldana (note to self: remember to highlight her another time), a role for which she shaved off all that gorgeous red hair.
Not exactly Rule 5 material, that, but a necessary step to the great weakness of the Thinking Man’s Zombie – a really fantastic pixie cut (second note to self – EMMA WATSON):
The shorts are nice, too. But dammit, this is not Viet Nam – there are rules here. This is number 5:
After Amy was lost to the angels, Eleven was joined by The Impossible Girl, Clara Oswald. In her first pass through the Whoniverse she was known as Oswin Oswald, and while she actually looked like this:
…in her mind’s eye she looked like this:
Now that’s a dress! Here’s Jenna Coleman in a bit less:
Now, of special note is the Doctor’s sometime companion, River Song. I’d love to tell you more about her, but…spoilers!
She is worth two pictures, though.
Gotta love a sci-fi chick who can handle a gun! Especially when played by Alex Kingston, who brings a tough sexiness to a time traveler who is every bit a match for the Doctor!
