Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: The Perfect Companion Edition

by

With the recent debut of the Twelfth Doctor, the creators seem to be actively combating the perception that its central characters are a romantic couple, something that I’m fully behind as a viewer.  Sure, there are great moments to be had with that concept, but I think it’s good to try another tack.  Some of the best Doctor/Companion interactions had no romantic overtones at all, and it’s perfectly valid for our hero to want to travel through space and time with a good friend, a protegée or even (GASP!) a dude.  Indeed, if I were The Doctor myself, first of all, they’d have to let out Colin’s patchwork coat quite a bit, but more importantly, I’d want someone like Leela or Ace with me, someone who could handle the physical side of things in adventuring and leave me to be clever and sort of marvelous, which leads us to today’s perfectly-paired query…
