Doctor Who–Early Births & Deaths – Part 2

From time to time I’ve been writing up posts covering the activity of Doctor Who during particular calendar years. So far there are posts up for every year from 1963 to 1978.

Only in the last couple of these–1977 & 1978–have I started including notes about significant births and deaths of real-life people related to the series. That means there are fourteen years which I have covered in general, but not in this area.

The Time Meddler: My Twelfth Doctor Wish-list

If I was an unscrupulous Time Lord with the ability to travel through the fourth dimension and to try to affect changes that I thought would make things better, there’s probably a bunch of stuff I’d do with my favorite TV series, Doctor Who.  Like many-a-fan (I assume), I’ve thought of these things from time to time, and I now I’m going to list them over a series of posts.

Weekly Geeky Question #5 – Doctor Who Companions vs. the X-Files

Every week in 2018, the plan is that my friend Rod is going to ask me some geeky question that will answer in a post. This week is Week #5, and Rod brought up a question which blends my favorite TV show, Doctor Who (both of them) with another long-running but very different science fantasy series, The X-Files.

Doctor Who: Who is a Companion?

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.
