doctor who: the companions


If Rose can be selfish, then her finest moments will come when she’s selfless. If Martha keeps quiet, then her moments of revelation – like her goodbye to the Doctor in Last of the Time Lords, or stuck with Milo and Cheen in Gridlock – make her fly. Donna is magnificently self-centred – not selfish, but she pivots everything around herself, as we all do – so when she opens up and hears the Ood song, or begs for Caecilius’ family to be saved, then she’s wonderful. 

Russell T. Davies


“Never cruel or cowardly. Never give up. Never give in.”

In the 61st century, the Shadow Proclamation recruits a group of women from different periods to form an elite squad: the Department of Objective and Covert Temporal Oversight through Respondent and Warranted Humanitary Operations, also known as D.O.C.T.O.R.W.H.O.


Look, I really like Pearl Mackie. I’m super excited for her as Bill. I’m even hoping that she sticks around for the next Doctor. But give me a Christmas special with just Peter and Jenna.

I know. I’m greedy. They had two full seasons and a Christmas Special.

But give me this last thing BBC. Let my Doctor be reunited with Clara Oswald, the first face his face saw, the woman seared into his hearts, and let them have one last Christmas together.

Companion Preferences: How They React To Finding Out You’re Dating The Doctor

A/N: I just thought of this today. Hope you like! Companions’ relationship with reader before was purely platonic FYI. This gifs are huge, but accurate. My bad, mobile people.

Rose Tyler: OH BOY. She would be PISSED. Angry. She’s not Bad Wolf anymore she’s MAD WOLF. Of course she does have feelings for the Doctor and finding out her best friend is dating him would make her feel betrayed. How could you do this to her? You knew how she felt! No, you didn’t. She probably would stick to Mickey and try to compete with your relationship with the Doctor. Who’s the better girlfriend? Who’s the better match for whom? That kind of thing. Rose Tyler will accept it, but it’s a rough and long internal battle for her.

Martha Jones: She would be hurt. She would feel betrayed much like Rose Tyler. She wouldn’t be as angry about it. She would just be hurt and feel depressed. It is slowly killing her on the inside and acts like a catalyst to her eventual departure (discreetly). She would smile and congratulate you two. She will warm up to it eventually, but she can’t stick around right now to watch it grow. When you meet again after her departure she would be happier and accept it with open arms, thanks to her finance.

Donna Noble: Oh my flipping gosh. She would be so happy for you two and would secretly plan your wedding. Of course she was the one to push you two around and play with your feelings till one of you confessed. She wanted this. She’s a sucker for romance! She would also come with names for your future kids (despite the Doctor telling her it’s not possible… Unless he lied about that bit.) Donna would embarrass you two with how TMI she’ll get about the details of your personal relationship. “Who’s the big spoon” “who’s the dominate one” all of that jazz.

Amy Pond: Much like Donna, she wanted this too! In fact she would invite you and the Doctor to go on double dates with her and Rory. She is so supportive and offers advice whenever she can using her relationship as an example. She might’ve had something to do with your getting together in the first place. We’ll never know. She’s sneaky. She’ll even show you tricks so you can get him flustered.

Clara Oswald: Depending which Doctor you’re with… She’s a bit iffy. She had/has feelings for Eleven, but she’s still supportive of your relationship. She wishes he would have dated her instead, but she’s not the super jealous type. So it’s a sad/happy emotion for her. If it’s Twelve she’ll be protective of you and the Doctor. She’s not fully supportive because his behavior has extreme shifts. She’s worried that you’ll hurt him and/or he’ll hurt you with his snappy attitude. She knows the Doctor real well, better than the other companions.
