Companions Who Never Were - Sergeant Benton

(*some lists do consider him a companion, but I would have loved to see him travel full-time with the Doctor.)

Companions Who Never Were - Sally Sparrow

Companions Who Never Were - Rachel “Ray” Defwydd

(Ray actually did almost became a companion — she was originally created as a possible replacement for Mel. Sophie Aldred also auditioned for the part, but was cast as Ace.)

Companions Who Never Were - Rita Afzal

Today’s theme is…

Companions who never were, those one-off characters you wish had gotten to travel in the TARDIS with the Doctor. This will be a multi-week theme, so if your favorite hasn’t popped up by the end of the day (very possible, since there are only nine in this round), send me a message and let me know who you want to see next week!

Happy Birthday, Peter Purves!
