    Nope! This is my main!

    dragonlov1 said: Instead of talking about official companions, I would love to hear your thoughts on the companions that never were (like Sally Sparrow, Astrid, technically Craig because he never traveled with him, Donna until Season 4, etc.). Favorites? Least favorite? Others you might want to add?

    CRAIG IS MY FAVORITE COMPANION OF ALL TIME.

    THAT IS THE ONLY ANSWER THIS QUESTION NEEDS.

    And I met James Corden after seeing him on Broadway and told him so myself! :D

    (But I’ll give a few other thoughts too, I guess :P)

    Sally was really cool! She had good chemistry with Ten despite never actually being on screen together in the episode.

    Donna’s first appearance actually annoyed the crap out of me, hah. I thought she was purely rude and obnoxious, and Catherine Tate’s performance was way over the top! I’m really glad though that they brought her back. Her character development was honestly the best that this show has ever seen, and Donna/Ten is one of my personal favorite pairings ever (not in a romantic way, just as travelers).

    Rita had serious companion potential and Eleven knew it too.

    I wish yo, but thank you!

    Anonymous said: That still doesnt explain the fact that she is rarely posted on your blog...

    Yes, it does explain why.

    I just said, I don’t think Martha is a very well-developed character so I don’t often make unprovoked posts about her.

    I very rarely get questions about her either.

    She has been off the show since 2010. There aren’t exactly many timely opportunities to bring up a character like that.

    If you’re a fan of Martha though, maybe you should post about her often on your blog!

    We were discussing Rose Tyler because I had several questions about Rose Tyler in my inbox. :)

    I’ve stated before that I do not think that Martha is a very well-developed character, at least not to the extent that Rose and Donna were. This is a thing that makes me sad. The aspects of her character that have been fleshed out, I very much like!

    But yes, there’s a lot to like about Martha, even if her character arc is lacking!

    Thank you for this!
I try to keep this blog about 95% original content, including a lot of personal insight and opinions, especially when asked about specific characters and episodes and things.
So naturally, there is a veeeery slim chance that my favorites will be exactly identical to yours, heh.
When I do dislike an aspect of the show, I try to be as respectful and logical as possible when explaining my reasons. I do not make posts out of the blue that attack someone’s favorite, or that are disrespectful in the way that they’re written. Vast majority of the time, I only make purely opinion posts when I’m asked specific questions (in this case, someone asked who my least favorite companions are and then I had more questions asking to explain why) and I answer those questions honestly!
I think it’s neat when we can all respect differing opinions, so long as they’re voiced respectfully. :)
(Oh, and although I’ve said before that I don’t entirely “hate” Rose, here are a few links if you still need a little more convincing!)
My Rose Tyler makeup tutorial!
Rose Tyler fan art I created!
Ten and Rose (not a pairing I personally like) GIF that I edited all fancy-like!
Literally me doing a Rose cosplay of sorts for my makeup vid:

So there you go!

    Thank you for this!

    kylatreblecleff said: Hey I love rose, and although you don’t like her, you still post her pics and that makes me happy:)

    D’aw of course! And like I’ve said, despite my dislike of her character in Series 2 and onward, she’s actually grown on me a lot in Series 1, so I don’t “hate” her by any means!

    But yeah: even if I’m not particularly fond a character or pairing personally, I know there are a lot of followers of this blog who do like those things, so I don’t mind posting a few images or nods at all…especially when those characters honestly do make for great reaction GIFs…
