So each week, I’m writing up an article in response to some geeky question from my friend Rod. This week, the question has to do with companions on the TV show, Doctor Who.
Now, similar to a question Rod recently asked me regarding the Legion of Super-Heroes comic books series, I find that my answer requires a lot of back-knowledge to understand. In that case, instead of including all that background info in the main post, I wrote up a separate article that was more of a reference it.
I’m doing the same thing here, because I find that to answer the main question, I have to come to a clear understanding in my head of which Doctor Who characters qualify as companions, and which do not.
