Any others that you just can't stand?

Melanie Bush (Bonnie Langford),
Jack Harkness.

I hate them all. I'd say Adric if I could choose only one.

MahanMan29 May 2012 12:11 p.m. PST

Turlough (I wanted to hit him, many times)
Adric deserved exactly what he got

I'll be honest…I haven't been too impressed with most of the "new" Companions, but that's me, and I'm a curmudgeon in matters concerning DW (okay, I liked Rose, but that's about it).

Edit: Good heavens, I forgot Mel! *facepalm* Consign her to the fires of Companion perdition, if you please!

Parmenion29 May 2012 12:15 p.m. PST

Ace was really bad, but picking one bad element out of the 7th Doctor's run is like picking your least favourite piece of excrement from a sewer.

When was Martha Stewart on DH?

Richard Humm29 May 2012 12:37 p.m. PST

Dodo, Adric and Mel.

Redcurrant29 May 2012 12:43 p.m. PST

Mel – Bonnie Langford – feed her to the Kraken.

Patrick R29 May 2012 1:07 p.m. PST

Donna Noble, she deserves to be waterboarded with sulfuric acid.

Mirosav29 May 2012 1:17 p.m. PST


All horrible.

MarkRyan29 May 2012 1:22 p.m. PST

Thanks, Parmenion. Now I have tea all over my screen. Funny. Accurate, too.

I think Peri needs to be on this list.

I haven't made it far enough through the original seasons to experience Adric yet. Given the general dislike, I'm sure I'll end up adding him to the list.

Adric was ok. Turlough was an atrocity, no reflection on the actor though, the way he got spittle coming out while he said tractata is award worthy. What a depressing character to have to play though.

little o30 May 2012 6:42 a.m. PST

Turlough, Adric

J Womack 9430 May 2012 8:22 a.m. PST

Martha Stewart is what I always call Martha Jones, the doctor who followed Rose as the Doctor's companion. Why do I call her that? Because I intensely dislike them both.

J Womack 9430 May 2012 8:24 a.m. PST

Cardinal: What a surprise. You disapprove. What's that? Oh, right: still don't need your approval. Have a nice day, sour graping.
