It was a sad day when Whovians had to say goodbye to Rory and Amy Pond Williams on the mid-season finale of ‘Doctor Who.’ But as long time fans of the show know, this was not the first time a companion had to leave the TARDIS and it will not be the last.
Companions have come and gone throughout the 49 years of the show and the good people at Harkable have created an infographic for the Mirror detailing not only the companions who have shared time and space with the various incarnations of the Doctor but have also included some great tidbits about their tenure on the show. This infographic is a great source of information for any Whovian, new and classic, to reminisce about the companions of days gone by.
Take a look as we travel down companion memory lane…
Janice's first memories of the genre were of watching the original 'Star Trek' and classic 'Doctor Who' episodes (Tom Baker, aka the Fourth Doctor, was her first). Soon, she was introduced to 'Godzilla' and her addiction then spread to books, magazines, movies and comics. Janice continued as a closet geek as her thirst and love for sci-fi grew and was only second to her love of baking. Then one night, on a whim, she answered a tweet to be a writer for ScienceFiction.com and the geek girl insider her was soon set free. Within 3 years she became the Senior Editor for the site. When not writing or editing for ScienceFiction.com, Janice is scouring the internet to feed her sci-fi cravings while defending conspiracy theories, protecting scientific theorems and loving all things science fiction.... and baking cookies.
