Eh, I'd rate Jenny, Madame de Pompadour and Canton Everett Delaware higher on the list. I get that Sally Sparrow was hot, but I never understood why she was always rated so high in these kind of lists.

Sally Sparrow managed to essentially out-doctor the Doctor.  She meets him once and simply says "You don't know me, but I know all about you and you're going to save me someday and here's what you will need to do it."  And the Doctor just looks confused and begs off.

That's also why I rather liked Martha Jones.

Well hello there! I don't know why I had completely forgotten about her, but besides the whole part where she's hot her character was kind of interesting. Throw her in the #5 position and call it good.

I'd like to see Canton Delaware come back as a companion to Capaldi's Doctor. I think the interaction between the two would be pretty entertaining, and the Doctor really needs a companion who isn't a fawning young girl for a while.

List fails - miserably - without the original series. Oh, if only Katarina, Richard Mace, Samantha Briggs, or Rachel Defwydd had had more episodes...

A lot of old-timey (wimey) Doctor Who usually had one character who was a bit more on the stick than the other Muggles; I call 'em "Single-Serving Companions." Of the lot above, three of them were actually considered as replacements for departing cast members, and one, Katarina, actually did take off with him, only to come to an unpleasant end about four episodes later when the writers couldn't decide what to do with her. Katarina was a wonderfully original character; it was a horrible, horrible waste.

This. And I'd rate Minnie higher as a companion-that-wasn't than Adam.

Also this. She not only out-doctored the Doctor, she out-companionned some of the primary companions too (and _all_ of the one-offs except maybe the cat burglar.) Not bad for a single-ep.

Meh. She's just a clever rougish antihero who stole something from a museum for kicks and has a tool for every occasion. Who would want to watch that?

I think the threshold for Companion status is (and should be) pretty low. If that dude from the Year of Eccleston gets to count as one because he was formally invited in one episode and cast off in disgrace the next, then I think a bunch of single-episode characters who are working with the Doctor and roughly at the level of your proper season-long Companions ought to qualify.

It's more a matter of intimacy than anything. So, the guy from "The Lodger," I'd have counted as a Companion even before he came back in other episodes, because he got a whole lifetime's worth of Doctor-knowledge dumped into his head, and immediately started acting like a Companion. (Fawning, confused, immediately rushing into danger he'd have avoided otherwise, etc.)

I always defined a companion as "someone who appears in the opening credits." Which would actually make Rory's dad a companion.

Those aren't ducks, they seem like small horses of some sort. You can tell because ducks only have 2 legs.

Well then the Doctor had no companions until the 8th Doctor (or maybe the 9th, I can't picture the credits for the TV Movie).
 
2013-12-31 01:46:42 PM
And all of them showed more personality in their one (or two) episodes than Clara has shown in an entire season.

I imagine the BBC is the final authority on who is and isn't a companion. They are the ones that get to determine that the Shalka Doctor doesn't count but that Paul McGann does. In general, I think your theory works for the new series. Not sure if James Cordon got opening credits for Closing Time though, and he's generally considered the companion for that one at least.

My suggestions for recurring characters if not companions in the long term.

Father Octavian
Vincent van Gogh
Wilfred Mott
Abigail, from A Christmas Carol
Lorna Bucket
Madge Arwell

That's as good an arbitrary rule as any, at least for the recent years. Although that would make John Simm's Master a Companion when he was definitely the Bad Guy.

Bingo. Adam and Wilfred were definitely companions... didn't notice Rory's dad was in the opening credits, but he should certainly be included.

On the other hand... weren't Kylie Minogue, Michelle Ryan, and David Morissey also in their respective opening credits?  Maybe we should modify the criteria to "listed in the opening credits and travelled in the TARDIS," which does keep River, Canton, Vastra, Jenny Flint, and Strax off the list.

David Morrisery would have made an interesting Tenth/Eleventh Doctor.

And Tennant would have been an interesting Governor, if his performance in "Broadchurch" (and his ability to pull off an American accent) is any indication.

Oh I agree that's why I say potential, but Martha was already working on it.  She's still better than the douche who began the list.
