The 2005 reboot of Doctor Who brought about many changes from the point of view of Classic Who fans. For new fans, the changes perhaps made the events and characters easier to relate to. For most of Doctor Who history, the companion is our voice, our way in to the Doctor’s world. The back story of the companion – specifically they type of family life from which they came – is largely ignored. This is something that changed drastically in 2005 when we were introduced to a companion’s mother. It opened a whole new realm of stories for the writers to explore, and it opened a whole new can of worms for the Doctor to deal with! Spend a delightful hour with actress Camille Coduri and you’ll see what I mean!
