Of the many Doctor Who-themed titles published by BBC Books, Steve Tribes’ Companions and Allies is a delightful journey through the entire television series, but from the perspective of his numerous companions and allies starting with Susan with the First Doctor and ending with Lady Christina De Souza from Planet of the Dead with David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor. Reading this is not only a journey through the Doctor’s adventures over his nearly 40-year television career, but also a journey through ...more

I really enjoyed reading the history of The Doctor's companions. Not only does this book fill in holes from the 1960's - 1989 version of the series, but it helps to enlighten certain aspects of the New Who. This book was very thorough (including a list of every DW episode made!) and fun to read. It's not an encyclopedia but more of a comprehensive guide to everyone who has helped The Doctor along the way. Great photos included as well.

A neat summary of the Doctor's companions through "Planet of the Dead". Like many New Series-era reference works, this has more emphasis on the modern material... but only slightly so, and they do try to give some of the most significant classic companions (Jamie, the Brigadier, Sarah Jane, etc.) their due as well.

Shelves: reference
Very nice primer/synopsis/reference for Doctor Who Companions from William Hartnell through David Tennant.

Some entries are more fleshed out than others, but that is to be expected. Little to no Expanded Universe info is given (but that's mostly a good thing, since it keeps things more concise).

This is really just a list of all the Doctor's companions since the series began in the 60's, complete with a short synopsis of their personality and adventures with the Doctor, with some additional allies thrown in. Lots of big splashy pictures and fun facts. Good for what it is.

interesting summary of the doctor's companions, male, female and mechanical from the beginning of the series in the 60s through the tenth doctor.
