    The Leela in my head still looks like your photo but Louise Jameson... sadly, not so much. Still, would be nice to see how married life has treated the warrior of the Sevateem.

    I guess you're right but there's no denying that Tom Baker was Dr Who for the most number of seasons and therefore had the most number of different companions.

    EDIT: I just checked and it seems that the 10th Dr (David Tennant) actually had more companions than Tom Baker. But Baker still holds the record for the number of seasons as the Dr!!

    That's mostly cause they consider one offs like Kylie Minogue a companion. That's tough for me. I don't think Kylie ever set foot in the TARDIS.

    Actually, I prefer Romana I.

    I've been watching some Jon Pertwee episodes. Jo Grant was hot.

    I'm almost finished watching the show on the 2nd Dr and am enjoying the classic episode much more than the one from the 1st Dr, which was more of a history lesson than Sci Fi. I have a question which is probably more retorical than answerable and just in case I'll put it in a spoiler.

    This episode is about the Cybermen and an expedition to their tomb. The Dr and party join the expedition and the Dr knows that it involves the Cybermen BUT he actually helps them open the hatch leading down to the tomb. Why would he do such a thing and possibly awaken the Cybermen whereas if he didn't help them they would have never gotten to revive the Cybermen!

    The "history lesson" was the original vision and intent for Doctor Who.

    Yes, I know but as I Sci Fi fan I really didn't care for those original episodes and much more prefer those with the later Drs.

    I really enjoyed the third special about Jon Pertwee's stint as the Doctor. As I've said before, I never really cared about the first two Doctors. Tom Baker was my first and favorite and Pertwee is my second favorite classic Doctor. He was more of an action hero Doctor than any of the others.

    I don't remember seeing this Terror Of The Autons episode before, so that was an added benefit. My favorite part of this special was the brief segment on Roger Delgado as The Master. His Master was cool, debonair and a Van Dyke sportin' smooove operator. I've always loved the way he played The Master. The clownish, insane Master from the Tennant era is an abomination as far as I'm concerned.

    I was actually quit disappointed that they chose "Spearhead from Space" as the episode. It was his first episode, so there was THAT, but he really hadn't "grown" into the part, and it didn't have Jo, or the Master. :(

    They didn't mention Elisabeth Sladen, which was odd as she was his companion for season 11 (his last of five seasons).

    While I am puzzling about what was included and excluded, I the show just before this one, "The Doctor's Companions," there was not but a mention of Donna Nobel. While I thought she was my least favorite of the companions, all were good, and her exclusion was, well, ood. Even if she was unavailable, they should have talked about her, you know, the Doctor-Donna and all.

    I noticed Sarah Jane's absence as well. I assume they're saving her for Tom Baker's special.

    Was the Doctor's Companion's special just about the companions of the reboot?

    That's my feeling as well, it will also show some of the progression in companion style.

    Yeah, pretty much

    I'm finding these Dr. Revisited and the companions somewhat disappointing. I was hoping for more about the companions pre 2005. But they all seem to get the short shrift. I hadn't seen a lot of Dr. Who pre 2005 (pretty limited to the 4th Dr. when I could find them as a kid).

    So getting the history is something I've been looking forward to. <SIGH>

    Well the Companions special that ran recently was only about the ones that have been since the reboot. Sarah Jane was on one episode with Tenant so she got a mention (and her own show) bit it was about the companions SINCE Rose. They didn't mention Donna though, which I found odd. :confused:

    This is about Doctors Revisited, which has only been about the first three Doctors (so far).

    I think the only companion they've really given short shrift to is Sarah Jane, who as mentioned will be covered in the Tom Baker episode. Remember, they only have about 45 minutes of air time (barely a half-hour of real time) to cover every aspect of several years' worth of the show. So everything's going to be pretty superficial, and it's realistic that they spend most of that time on the Doctor himself.

    Yeah, and when they get to the next doctor, Tom Baker, it will be a stretch since he played the Doctor over a seven-year period, from 1974 to 1981. That's a lot of ground to cover in a half hour of screen time. What episode do you think they'll feature for him? There were a lot, and a lot of pretty good ones. :)

    Doctor Who News Page seems to have spilled the beans that it will be
    Pyramids of Mars ...because it's on the upcoming DVD.
