Did you ever want to be The Doctor’s companion? I grew up with the longing, but I wonder if other people tend to imagine being a certain kind of companion, the way I did. Maybe I’m just weird.
I wanted to be Leela and Romana combined. I wanted to be his protector, his fighter, but I also wanted to be his equal. I wanted to sometimes be smarter than him. I wanted to be the same sort of creature he was. Only a lot rowdier.
You can see why River Song sort of weirds me out a little.
