I give Donna a break because of the fantastic mime scene at the window when she and the Doctor spot each other. She could have spent the rest of the season setting fire to orphanages and would have come out ahead.

FirstNationalBastard: twat_waffle: ElectricPeterTork: I always like the continuation of a companion through regenerations.

This could have been interesting.

Even Mary Sue Tyler?

I think you got Mary Sue's last name wrong.

You meant "Pond".

Neither of you even seem to know what a Mary Sue is, this is just pathetic.

I think my main problem with Moffat companions vs. RTD companions is that the Moffat companions feel more like plot devices than people.  They have no identity outside the Doctor.  Who was Amy before she got involved with the Doctor?  We get almost zero look at this.  Whereas the RTD companions each had nearly half an episode apiece devoted to their pre-Doctor lives, where we got to see them at their jobs, interacting with their families, and just getting to know them as a person.  We never got this with Amy, and only got a tiny smidgen of it with Clara.

The theme of the RTD companions seemed to be "this could be you", by portraying them as completely normal people who just happened to express a good amount of initiative when they got tangled up in whatever mess the Doctor happened to be involved with, and the Doctor in turn wanted to give them something in return for their help.  The Moffat companions so far have both been presented as the "mostest speshul girl in the universe", whom the Doctor is interested in not because of who they are as a person or what they've done, but because of the timey-wimey circumstances surrounding them.

Plus, with the way he initially approached Donna after his ordeal with Martha, you'd think that any potential companion who even attempted to flirt with him would be punted to the curb faster than a weeping angel stalking Helen Keller.
