Time for a male Doctor Who companion?


Now we know, the new Doctor Who companion is Jenna-Louise Coleman. But even this morning, while fans waited for this news, one thing was never in doubt: Matt Smith's Doctor would once again be joined on his voyages through space-time by a lady. That's the rule, one as fixed as any of the laws of physics: male Doctor, female companion.

That's not to say we never get an extra shot of testosterone in the Tardis – the dappy, lovesick Rory and the uber-dashing Captain Jack spring to mind. But these men have never been companions in their own right; they only appear alongside female companions. Even in the original Doctor Who series, where there were more companions in the mix, it was rare to find the Doctor with only male company. more

Ami's Crocheted TARDIS


Ami says It is about 3 feet by 2 feet tall…made by Rachel. It is obviously bigger on the inside, it’s bulging!

We think it's brilliant. Anyone got anything similar, send us your photos.

Arcturus

Arcturus is an alien delegate to planet Peladon in the 39th century, and revealed to be the main villain in the Doctor Who four-part episode "The Curse of Peladon" (1972). Physically, this creature resembles a greenish humanoid skull enclosed in a large robotic body and with a highly electronic speech. He was one of the ambassadors send by the Galactic Federation to negotiate Peladon's requested membership. At first, it appears that there was an attempt of murder against his life, but it was later revealed that he himself had planned the whole thing along with Hepesh, the king's High Priest, who didn't want his planet to join the alliance. Arcturus planned to commercially exploit the rich mineral resources of Peladon, since his own planet is poor on these. He was later killed by one of the Ice Warriors, who saved the Doctor's life in the process.

Alpha Centauri

Alpha Centauri is a hermaphroditic hexapod from Alpha Centauri and, being effectively genderless is referred to as "it" as opposed to "he" or "she". It is tall, green, has one large blue eye, six arms and a high-pitched voice, wears a long yellow cape and walks with a nervous gait. It is prone to cowardice and hysterics. It has a low opinion of Earth, describing it as a "'remote and unattractive" planet, but regrets that its appearance can frighten humans. It regards females as unimportant.


Alpha Centauri is also the name of Alpha Centauri's native star system. The Alpha Centauri binary star system is second only to Proxima Centauri in proximity to the Solar System, home to the Earth. From "The Curse Of peladon (1972)"
