As i`m not very happy with the imminant arrival of Donna Noble in the series I was just wondering who could have been maybe a better choice from what we`ve seen in the first three new series so far - vote now!

I agree with the choice of Sally Sparrow.

Other might have been companions from the classic series which I would have liked to have seen include:-

Sara Kingdom from the Daleks Master Plan

the scouse lass (I forget her name!) played by Pauline Collins in 'The Faceless ones'.

Rachel ('Ray') in 'Delta and the Bannermen' (if only the Bannermen had zapped Mel!)

The Chinese girl who Ace befriends in 'Battlefield'

I've heard whispers from people insinde the industry that Catherine Tate was forced onto the production team as the programme is getting too popular. Well, it's made by BBC Wales not BBC London and that would never do, would it?

They've lost one viewer, certainly. Me. I cannot stand Catherine Tate and the TV goes off when she's on. Shrill voiced talentless harpie. That and RTD's writing as the final 3 episodes of the last season ranked as some of the worst Who I've ever seen, and that includes Time and the Rani.

Wouldnt it have been great to see Reinette explore the universe with the Doctor - just how great would that have been? And it would have added something extra special to the world of DW to see her surprise and awe at many superb spectacles -instead we get another boring non companion in Donna Noble!

I could not agree more.

If the TV Movie had spawned, I would have liked to have seen a few more adventures with Grace.

I also think that Kamelion had untapped potential, even if it had meant casting a new actor to play a different 'form' every couple of stories or so.

Will from The Awakening would have been a good companion too.

After watching 'Destiny of the Daleks' last night and seeing the bit where the Dr. reprograms one of the Movellans, perhaps he could have kept a friendly Movellan as a companion.

Given that we never see the Movellans again, I assume they must have lost their war against the Daleks.

According to Ressurection The Movellans won the war with the Daleks, using a virus. However, as we never see them again, it seems likely they were later wiped out. In the Remembrance novelisation, there's reference to the Imperial Daleks waging a war of vengeance against them. Davros had addapted their biological make-up, so those Daleks were probably imune to the virus.

IMO, the Movellans were created by the Time Lords, possibly the Celestial Intrervention Agency.
