Doctor Who Companions


Last week I went to a small Doctor Who event in Bedford (UK) – Bedford Who Charity Con -where Three Former Companions of The Doctor from the 1960s – Patrick Troughton’s Doctor, the 1970s – Jon Pertwee’s Doctor and the 1980’s – Sylvester McCoy’s Doctor, were appearing along side John Leeson the voice of K9  The tickets were a little pricey but it was a Charity Event for the Bedford Food Bank which is providing emergency food for 500 children and adults a month.

It was also the day that they announced the name of the actress to play the new companion to Peter Capaldi’s Doctor.  There was lost of laughter when  Sophie Aldred, Katy Manning and Deborah Watling discussed the merits of the different type of shoes they wore whilst a companion. (Doc Martins, Hobnail boots and high heels (platform).

What also was interesting was on my journey to the convention a Dalek (with helper)  was trundling alongside a fairly main road and nobody was batting an eyelid as it used a zebra crossing.

All in all it was a great day out.
