The Top 10 Doctor Who Companions

3. Ian

The first Doctor was very different from future incarnations.  They were still getting his character figured out.  In a canonical or “in-character” view, you could say that the Doctor was still a bit cocky in his proud youth, while people on Earth gave him the respect of an elder. Either way, the Doctor was a bit more harsh and a bit more irritable.  That’s why Ian was an important addition to the team.  In the first two seasons, Ian saves the day every bit as much as the Doctor does, even saving the Doctor at times.  In terms of usefulness, Ian is as good as it gets, even showing a great deal of self-sacrifice when it comes to saving Susan and Barbara.

    • I don’t consider River a regular companion. More of a recurring guest star. The Brigadier would’ve been the same except he was a regular with the third Doctor.

      As to Rose, I honestly don’t think she’s top ten material. I like her, and I think she’s a good character, but I just don’t think she’s as good as the others on this list. I honestly thought Billie Piper was much better in the Fiftieth Anniversary. I’d love to see her playing a character with that type of personality.

  1. Ok, I get what you are saying about River.

    Now about Rose. One of the things that makes her the best in my opinion is the story development. It starts off with a girl that is basically pacifist, and a man who is out for revenge. In the end they are able to help each other out in there way of thinking, she can fight in times that need it, and he can show compassion to even his worst enemy’s.

    And there is also the part that you don’t see with any of the other companions, was when she realizes that she has just ran away with a man that she dose not even know, trusting him with her life. Now she tells him to take her back, until she finds out she can trust him. And another thing… This is fun, keep it coming! :)
