The 20 Greatest Doctor Who Companions of All Time

BBC production Doctor Who has been on the air since 1963 – though it took a 16-year hiatus between 1989 and 2005. The show features a time-traveling alien Time Lord known as The Doctor, alongside the various people he/she has taken on their travels in their TARDIS device.

The Doctor has regenerated twelve times, and the Thirteenth Doctor is the first female version of the character (played by Jodie Whittaker). READ MORE...
