    Default Companions Poll: The Fifth Doctor



    So many companions, even the Fifth Doctor had difficulty counting them all?

    But which is your favourite?
    Pity. I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank. EXTERMINATE!

    Well it's certainly not Erimemememememememem who is one of the worst companions ever. Every BF story I heard with her, I hoped would be her last.

    No, it's Tegan for me. When she's written well she's fabulous- yes she could be bolshy and whinge quite a lot, but she was capable, not phased by a lot of what went on around her when she's at her best (look at how she copes with the Mara stuff or in Frontios or much of Castrovalva).

    I've just got my handcuffs and my truncheon and that's enough.

    It's a Janet Fielding landslide! (And that thoughts going to keep me warm tonight! )

    Turlough, despite being terribly underused half the time.

    Oooh, coconut macaroons!

    I probably should vote for Tegan, and I certainly liked her at the time, but with hindsight it does strike me that most of the time you wonder why she's electing to travel with the Doctor, although I can't deny that that made for a very effective departure scene, and indeed I like the way she was introduced in Logopolis. Plus she doesn't need my vote here!

    However, I'm voting for Turlough on the basis that I thought it was a great idea to have a shifty, dangerous companion, although of course all the early promise of the Guardian trilogy soon gave way to very little indeed sadly.

    I prefer Nyssa to Tegan most of the time but I've voted for Turlough. He just seems more interesting to me.

    I went for Nyssa - underrated, underused, under-dressed eventually, and I think she was the one companion the Fifth Doctor had the most affection for.

    I'm warming to Nyssa thanks to the BF audios, but it's got to be Tegan. She's a spunky gal and no mistake!
