  2. My favorite companion is Amy because she reminds me of myself. She even has my hair.

    1. My favorite companion is Amy too actually! I so wish I had red hair it's ridiculous. Totally jealous. :D

  3. I think my favourite companion is Rose and Donna. I hated Donna at first but she grew on me and I was sad to see her go.

  5. I like Rose and Donna too. Actually I'm just a huge 10 fan so whoever he is with is fine with me.

    1. Hee, Rose and Donna are great! And "Beautiful Chaos" delves more into Donna's family, it's a great read!

    1. Hee, me too! I'm happy there are many Pond lovers here! :) BTW, I just came across this yesterday - Michael Jayston interviewing Colin Baker and Jon Pertwee from a DW convention in 1995. So great! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gds08keYUiA

  7. My favs are Amy & Rory - I can't separate them, I just love them both together as the Doctor's companions :)

    Thank you so much for the awesome giveaway!

    1. Even though I say Amy is my fave, I like the eps better when she and Rory are traveling with the Doctor - they have such a great dynamic!

      Thanks for commenting!

    2. Exactly, that's why I love them so much ^_^

  8. From the new series, my favorite companion is definitely Donna!
    Classic-Who wise, I have to go Sarah Jane. And K9!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Maybe you would like "Beautiful Chaos" since it has Donna and the author does a great job of capturing her snark! And for Classic-Who, I don't think I have a clear favorite... maybe at the moment it would be Romana II. I do love Sarah Jane and K9 as well!

  9. I haven't watched Doctor Who, but i'm interested in doing that sometime. Well, i saw the first ever episode but I want to try a different season, I heard Donna is a good companion.

    Replies
    1. Oh it's fantastic! It has a little something for everyone I think, a little action adventure, romance, scifi, and it can be scary sometimes! I know a few friends who were turned off by the first season, but I told them to skip to the second and that got them hooked. :)

      Delete
  10. I loved every companion I've seen, but I'm gonna have to pick Rose. And Captain Jack (if he counts) :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ooh Captain Jack definitely counts! He ranks pretty high on my list of faves. :)

      Delete
  11. Even though they seem to be over represented, my favorite companions are Amy and Rory. I loved their interactions and I liked how she wasn't a romantic option for The Doctor.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ooh is your middle name Jane? :) It's alright for Amy and Rory to be over represented in my opinion! I love that she wasn't a romantic option for the Doctor too, it gave her a happy (ish) ending with Rory.

      Delete
  12. OMF, I JUST SAW DOCTOR WHO AND I COMPLETELY FLIPPED. My favourite would be the mainstream of Rose, because Doomsday was just freaking horrible and I had snot running down my face. I LOVED Donna as well! :)

    1. What they do? Probably cause they are jealous. :D

  16. I really loved Rose (but that probably has a LOT to do with David Tenant)...but Amy was also fantastic.

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  18. Oh I posted a comment but it's gone!

    It's hard for me to pick an absolute favourite companion, they're all fantastic in their own way. I think Donna might be the most fun though - she's also the most 'normal'. The others are all super intelligent, or super skilled, or seem to have had their entire lives entwined around the Doctor - whereas Donna is just a normal woman, who happens to come across this man.

    I'd definitely pick Beautiful Chaos, as I haven't read any of the Donna novels yet =)

    1. Ooh first vote for the Impossible Girl! :D I'm glad she's continuing on after Matt's run (it seems like?) I look forward to seeing more of her!

  21. Thanks so much for the giveaway. My favorite companion is Rose, who just has such an infectious energy that I can't help but smile when I see episodes with her in them! :) (Then again, I really loved Christopher Eccleston as the 9th Doctor as well and not a lot of people do) For the books I would want 'Festival of Death' the most because it sounds like a kick-butt story and my brother would want to steal it from me, cause Tom Baker is his Doctor all the way!!! LOL :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I definitely understand liking Rose's energy and heart! I think Festival of Death is the best book of the three actually - very inventive and complex. And I love Tom Baker too!

  22. My favourite companion was Rose Tyler, the world's favourite chav :-)
    My kids used to tease me about me liking her and all but it was worth it...

    1. LOL, well she's cool, so your kids probably just wanted to be her. :D

  23. I first started with Amy and Rory so...I have to say them! I am all new to Doctor Who but I have to say it is one of my favorite shows now and I have been watching much too much of it lately. But...you cant watch to much of The Doctor can you? I dont think so. :)

    Replies
    1. I'm so glad that you are fan too! I agree, it's impossible to watch too much Doctor Who! There should be a channel devoted to it.

  27. Thankyou for awesome giveaway, the who-ology looks amazing. My favourite companion might actually be Rory (although it's very hard to choose), such brilliant comic timing from Arthur Darvill

  28. My favourite companion is Rose. She had great chemistry with both the Ninth and Tenth Doctors.
