She calls into the fire, “Doctor, Doctor”.

Having saved the Earth (again) it’s time for the 10th Doctor to take Rose somewhere different. The future and New Earth. New New York (well the 15th one but that would be a bit of a mouthful wouldn’t it).

But before going to the city they have to visit a hospital, someone has sent the Doctor a message on his psychic paper. “Ward 26. Please come.” As they chat they’re being watched, it’s Cassandra O’Brian and she recognises Rose.

Doctor Who – The Companions

November 20, 2013 in Dr Who, Guest Blogs by GuestBlogs

A guest blog Darth Namialus


If you ask a Whovian what their favourite Doctor Who character is, one would expect them to reply with “The Doctor” himself, but that is simply not true. Of all the characters on this show, most fans would much rather turn and say that they are their favourite characters on the show, they as in us, they as in the Companions. Because, essentially, that is exactly what the Companions are; the audience themselves travelling with the Doctor. The Doctor, being a lonely traveller across the universe, needs a friend or two to accompany him, and the Companions he finds help him through the way. They are the most important aspect of the show – they are the gateway for us to travel with the Doctor. Join me as we take a look at all the Doctor’s companions from the past seven series, from Rose Tyler to Clara Oswald.

(NOTE: Spoilers from each series will follow.)
