Ever since Derek decided to produce a Doctor Who podcast, our site has been flooded with promotional material for the ongoing hit television series. We recently posted a pretty cool infographic by Bob Canada explaining some of the history behind the show. Now we have another to share with you. This one comes from Geeks of Doom. Below is their description for the graphic. Thanks to Muhammad Saleem for sharing.
From the very beginning of Doctor Who, the companions (or sometimes referred to as his assistants) of the Gallifreyan Time Lord have played a significant and central role not just within the show itself, but also upon the evolution of the good Doctor himself. His first companions had as much an impact on William Hartnell‘s portrayal of the Doctor, as does the impact of Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill) on Matt Smith‘s Eleventh Doctor.
The infographic below, follows the history of the Doctor’s companions – from the early adventures of William Hartnell’s First Doctor, through to the modern era with Matt Smith. There’s a lot of interesting notes along the way, including why some companions seem to have had a much more significant impact on the history of the show overall.
