doyle: ten/jackson lake (dw - ten/jackson)
[personal profile] doyle
I've registered a community called [community profile] companions which is for, in a does-what-it-says-on-the-tin way, the Doctor Who companions (and those whose companion status is debatable like Jackie Tyler or Duggan). I'm not quite sure what I want to do with it, though. I wanted a general comm about all the companions, new, old and middle school, but I don't want it to either descend into faction-bickering or floods of Ten/one-of-Ten's-companions fic. Hm.

Just the fact that this was the comm I immediately wanted to make, though, proves what I've thought for a while, that the companions are really the most important bit for me; I don't even mind which companion so much, so long as one of them's around. This latest batch of NSAs is the first I haven't immediately bought because I'm much less interested in Ten alone or Ten plus one-off novel companion than I am in Ten plus Rose, Martha or Donna (or Jack, Mickey, Jackson and Rosita...)

I'm reading the Gary Russell one with Donna and Wilf at the moment. I wish this one would be an episode so I could have EVIL NORTHERN IRISH MEGALOMANIACS on my telly. Normally we're only allowed to be terrorists, alcoholics or sarcastic police detectives, so Doctor Who Villain would be a step up.

Sad but true.

Hurrah! More things to join.

And yes, have been ruminating on such things too, since importing the old journal and thus poking through random old bits of babbling. I found a hilarious bit of venomous fury from myself at the casting of Catherine Tate for S4 - along the same lines of 'the companion's the most important bit'. (Though looking back, the fact that I then utterly adored Donna in the end made me like Ten more - but then again, I do think Tennant's more comfy in S4, the writing overall is better, etc etc). Haven't read any of the... NSAs (is that what we're calling them? honestly?) for that reason, really: suspect they'll be bothering more with the Doctor characterisation and happy to slot in whichever companion happens to be around, in a Five Doctors-y cracky-yet-annoying kind of way.

Damn, it feels good to be thinking about this stuff again.

Yay for companions *waits patiently for fandom to provide the awesome steampunk adventures of Rosita and Jackson* perhaps you'll have to ban Doctor/companion pairings as a temporary measure?

I'm all in favour of EVIL NORTHERN IRISH MEGALOMANIACS (technically there are lots of Scottish megalomaniacs in the cinema, they're just all doing unconvincing Eastern European accents...)
