Okay hear me out but why are almost all of the DW companion’s parents either at least half dead or MIA
Because I’m all about representation so whERE ARE THE PARENTS
Like okay we’ll start with Rose (classic who would take way too long)
So Rose’s dad - dead, hit by a car
Jack - doesn’t really count he’s too old to have parents
Martha - both parents intact, well done RTD
Donna - God knows where her dad was, but we had Wilfred so all is good in the world - but still(!) no father
Amy - parents got eaten by a hole so she forgot about them, still MIA, eventually do come back
Rory - Brian Brian Brian Brian. Brian is the best I love Brian.
Clara - dead mother
Bill - dead mother, dad MIA
Do we, as watchers of the show, just like the vulnerability of loss, or do they just use it on the show as a plot point (Amy, Rose, kind of Clara, probably Bill at some point). But seriously the chances of the Doctor pretty much always finding someone who’s parent/s are gone is pretty slim. Like these companions are in their 20’s, not many people lose their parents when they’re that young. I get that a lot of people are from single parent homes but still.
Also can the companions have more siblings pls.
