found another planet

Answering that anon made me remember how much insane variety there is in classic Who companions. Like, I’m not knocking new Who for its desire to ground the show through the companions. It’s probably necessary for making the show nowadays. But let’s take a second to appreciate how few fucks the classic Who producers gave. There was…

  • a genius astrophysicist from the future with perfect memory
  • a warrior from a primitive society that developed on another planet after the Doctor fucked up real bad one time
  • a stuck up time lady
  • a boy genius mathmetician from another reality
  • an alien aristocrat whose dad’s body was stolen by the Master in her first story and he. just. kept it?
  • an exiled political prisoner from another world pretending to be a school boy and who’s being manipulated by the avatar of all evil
  • a shape-shifting robot that the Master found on another planet that the Doctor reprograms and then everyone just forgets about until the Master shows up again (oh and the Master is still running around in that one girl’s dad’s body by the way)
  • an American
  • a perfectly ordinary teen who just happened to swept up in time storm and transported to another planet in the far future and starts waiting tables there all as part of the plan of yet another cosmic evil in its ongoing chess match with the Doctor

Since they blocked me imma just post a screenshot from safari and say: you know this is about alien abduction right? Which is a common theme in the scifi genre? Because thats what the diamonds did. You think if humans found life on another planet we wouldnt scoop it up and stick it in a terrarium to look at for fun? And dont try to go off about colonialism either, thats not what this was about. Do you realize that probably the most recent thing you could liken to a human zoo are the nazi concentration camps, where jews, who were WHITE, mind you, were kept in filthy conditions and executed because they were viewed as lesser by their OWN species? I get what ur saying about the gross blips of cruelty in our own history but you need to take a gotdam NAP. The crewniverse is not in the wrong for making us think about how valuable our humanity is to us

did yall hear abt how they found another planet similar to earth?? what if there is a better version of me there??? is she hot????
