This week’s topic is one we’ve touched on a bit, but we thought it deserved its own episode. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we talk about companions who were also soldiers (or soldierey or soldier-adjacent). Naturally, there’s a lot of UNIT talk, but there are more soldier-companions than you might think.
What do you think of the military companions? And how do you feel about the Doctor’s ever-evolving reaction to soldiers? Let us know in the comments!
- Tansy reads about Osgood as Missy’s companion in a fanfic called “The Dread Pirate Missy”!
- Erika looks forward to two new comic books series from former Doctor Who writers:
- Lynne discovers a new 10th Doctor Tumble love: Three TARDISes and a Tea!
- does some fannish excavation and unearths a Rose Tyler action figure!
- enjoys Anglophenia’s celebration of Captain Jack’s 10 year anniversary!
- ooohs and ahhhs over the art for the upcoming Doctor Who multi-Doctor comics!
