Classic And EU Who Appreciation Week: Day 3

Favorite Classic Series Companion: Barbara Wright

No question who my favorite Classic companion is! History teacher, Aztec goddess, Dalek destroyer, all around badass… Barbara is amazing. Kind, caring and wise, she’s not afraid to stand up for others who need help, nor to stand up for herself- even to the Doctor. (Just watch her speech laying down the law to him in ‘The Edge of Destruction’! Holy mackerel, it is fantastic.) 

As part of the first TARDIS team, and one of the first humans the Doctor ever travels with, she sets an example for the Doctor and teaches him about compassion, and it helps him become the hero we know today. All hail the goddess Yetaxa! :)
