Posted Filed under

Though all his travels, the Doctor has been accompanied by a host of companions. From school teachers and alien orphans to robots, but invariably attractive young women, their horizons have been expanded in his company – never to be the same again.

Diving into Cavan Scott and Mark Wright’s Wit, Wisdom and Timey-Wimey Stuff: The Quotable Doctor WhoCultBox has chosen 10 quotes from many uttered by those lucky enough to see the universe in the Doctor’s company…
