The new companion

Post by The_Void on Sun Jan 04, 2009 4:01 am

Male? Female? Old? Young? Gay? Alien? Naked? What actors/actresses would be good?

Personally, I think Katie McGrath would make a good companion. What about you lot?

I can imagine that we will have a female companion. There have been very few stories without a female companion or female companion character. The Massacre and The Deadly Assassin are the only stories that springs to mind and even one of them features one at the very end. I wouldn't be suprised if we got a full time male companion too. After all, The Moff did create Captain Jack.

I think it'll be a female companion, regardless of who the Doctor is, just because it otherwise it starts becoming a bit too blokeish. Plus, in the current format, I don't think more than one companion works - if you're having to feature three regulars then it cuts down the rest of the time, or one of them doesn't have much to do.

My guess (and a total guess at this point) is going to be someone who looks a bit older than the Doctor - perhaps similar to RTD's unused Penny idea.

An older woman please. I quite like the idea of an Evelyn type. Would properly ring the changes. If Joan Sim was still alive she'd have been a good choice. Liz Smith!

Thinking about it a bit, I can see Smith's Doctor being quite strange and alien in a way that's a bit reminiscent of Tom Baker, with the companion as someone who provides a bit of normality for the audience. I'm thinking someone like Maxine Peake, Claire Goose, Naomie Harris or Raquel Cassidy.

Maxine Peake please. She is brilliant and gets better and better in everything I see her in. Marvellous in Hancock and Joan, The Devil's Whore and Little Dorrit.

If we have a younger Doctor, I'd love to see an older companion. One of Samantha Bond, Claire Skinner, Julia Sawalhawalhawalhawalha or Jennifer Saunders would be amazing. Smile

I just had a thought, seeing her mentioned in the Guardian's TV pages today - what about Kate Ashfield?

Really don't fancy her, myself. Don't know why. I just never got to grips with her type of humour.

I hear they're looking for a Doctor of Philosophy in Paleobotany and Botanical Sciences actually.

I genuinely want Donna back. She was peerless.

Perhaps we should start a petition or something.

Another name that's just occurred to me - Lucy Liemann, who was Sam the script editor on Moving Wallpaper. She's got a good mix of bolshy assertiveness and vulnerability, and she played off Ben Miller in a way that I could see working with the Doctor.
