All things must end, and so it is with companions and their time in the Tardis. From the first companion, Susan, all the way up to Rory and Amy, almost every companion has had a start and a finish (there are three exceptions. Can you name them?). Some of those send-offs have been truly epic; bringing us to tears or moving us to great joy. Some of been…well, some have just basically been someone wandering off in the middle of the story and never coming back. Yes, that is actually a thing that happened. We’re all looking at you, Dodo.
For the purposes of this article, we are not considering Katarina, Astrid Peth, Adam Mitchell, or any of the other “one off” characters as companions. If someone was in basically two episodes, they aren’t a companion, they’re a guest star. There’s nothing wrong with that, »
