if you could swap companions with doctors (like amy with nine) what would you choose?
A reply from whovianfeminism

Hm. I don’t think I’d swap any companions. The companions really seem to fit the Doctors they are with. Which makes sense from a textual perspective; that particular Doctor would choose a companion which meshes best with their personality.

I have, however, been listening to the Big Finish audio “The Light At The End,” and it makes me want a few episodes where the Doctors and their companions interact with each other. Donna and Nine would be awesome and a little terrifying (just imagine the sass!). Martha with Five would be fun. I think they both have a very dry brand of snark and sarcasm that would be fun to mix. And I just want to see Three and Twelve face off against each other with Clara and Jo making fun of them both in the background.

And then, to top it all off, Ace would make fun of all of their ridiculous outfits. I kid you not, this is an actual quote from Ace in “The Light At the End,” describing the First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Eighth Doctors:

“So…are you seriously telling me, all those blokes: Old man white hair, Beatles haircut, frilly shirt, long scarf big eyes, cricket boy, Joseph and his amazing Technicolor dream coat and Lord Byron? All of them, they were you?”

Joseph and his amazing technicolor dream coat.

Four hopefuls attend an audition to be the Time Lord’s next companion. But who compiled the shortlist?

The Doctor Who audio Big Finish episode Situation Vacant is currently on iPlayer. It stars Paul McGann as the 8th Doctor. The episode is one hour long and available for another four days.

All these beds. So… small. Too small to convert people. Look at them. They’re tiny. Like… Like cribs. They’re like little cribs. I just want to see. I need to see.

All humans will be converted.

You bastards! What have you done?

The infants are too small. Their organs are harvested and used to create this.

What- what is it?

A Cybermat.

Pages Torn From Time

Alt. title: “Pieces of Eight.” XD

Sketches of the Eighth Doctor, whom I love so ridiculously much! Also featuring Charley (Charlotte Pollard), the companion he refused to give up even though the laws of time and Time Lords demanded it.

I adore these two. The world needs more Eight and Charley! More Eighth Doctor, period. He is one of the sweetest, most adorable, enthusiastic, charismatic and passionate Doctors ever, though the pendulum can too easily swing to a darker, colder nature full of snark and weary of battle. And need I mention he is also played by PAUL MCGANN! *___*

If you need more convincing of his adorableness, here is an audio snippit of him rummaging through his bottomless pockets in search of sunglasses for Charley: LISTEN NOW

I highly, highly recommend the Big Finish audio dramas. They are utterly amazing and addictive, and are keeping me sane through work and the wait for the 50th.  And there’s no better time than now to start listening! Big Finish has discounted Eight’s first season to only $3 an episode!!  I recommend starting at the beginning with “Storm Warning"  ^__^

EIGHT NEEDS MORE LOVE, PEOPLE!  Give him a chance and he’ll run off with your heart. And drink all your tea.

Loving the covers for the Charlotte Pollard boxset!

Make Me Choose: patrexes asked you: sam jones or charley pollard
Seeing as it is one week till May starts, I thought it would be a good time to do this. Because guess what happens in May? That’s right, the first boxset of the Charlotte Pollard spinoff comes out.
As she is my favourite companion, I am more than a little excited she’s getting her own series, so I did this, inspired by the cover.
Also, basically, just, oh my gosh, go pre-order it now.

I’m still pretty behind in Charley’s stories (nearly done with her Eight run, though), but dang this is nice. AND INDIA LOVES IT!

Alternate covers for the main range Eight audios. Aka what happens when Krissy explores older musicals and has access to photoshop.

The many variations of this, YOU ASKED FOR IT, KONI.

C’rizz is the prettiest chameleon companion.

I could do this all day.

I still haven’t made it to Absolution yet (and won’t for a while because I’m Not Ready), but I still say that the true tragedy of C’rizz is that arguably Doctor Who’s most visually interesting companion is audio-only.
