Wilfred is one of my favorite characters, but I can't call him a "companion" because he hardly travelled with the Doctor at all. Mickey was pretty good too, but not my favorite. IMO, to qualify as a "primary" or "major" companion, you have to spend more than 75% of a season traveling with the Doctor.Blackcyclops wrote:I'm always sad people didn't like Martha as much as I did. I know it's a taste thing but she's just so lovely.
Amy and Rory are both my second faves.
It's weird that some outlets are saying this is the first companion since Donna to not be romantically connected with the Doctor (Amy might have at first but their relationship was always more brother and sister like to me as it developed). But I'm like Clara and Capaldi didn't have those kinda feelings toward each other, right? Now the Doctor and Missy? I ship them.
And NuD, I know you said major but man it's hard to leave Mickey and Wilfred.
Honestly, if we were to rate "boyfriends of primary companions," it would go:
Rory--A classic. His own character with a great arc. Upgraded from boyfriend to "companion"
Micky--pretty good, funny at times but sometimes annoying.
Pink--who sucked. I hated him.
I also liked Martha quite a bit, but she just kind of sank lower on the list because of how awesome Donna, Amy, and Rory are.
