Bottom Tier Companions, eh? Mine are ( this probably annoys most peopleCollapse )
My Top Tier? Ace, Romana, Leela, Barbara, probably Amy, maybe Jamie. Honourable Mention goes to Donna. Mickey as well though I admit he's an odd choice. These ones are easier to make sense of, since they have Actual Personalities and were mostly someone's beloved from the production side of things. Care and attention went into them -- stuff like Cartmel vetoing Ace's proposed scream in Ghost Light, or Lalla and Tom removing an argument from City of Death. (Which I'd normally not be sure on, but at that point
it's probably true that the Doctor and Romana wouldn't get into a huge fight. Tis the honeymoon, after all.)
(I should point out that I'm not counting River, as she and the Brig are in the category of pseudocompanions for me. They're not expected to fulfill the companion role in quite the same way that's demanded of the others.)( more on the nu who companionsCollapse )This entry was originally posted at http://nostalgia.dreamwidth.org/129527.html.
