It is that dreaded time for Doctor Who fans again: we’re losing a companion. Whether you have watched from the very beginning of the classic series or whether you are a ‘New Who’ fan, you have probably experienced the loss and pain of seeing your favorite companion leave. And it hurts almost as much, if not the same, as losing your favorite Doctor. After all, you know the Doctor comes back. Different face, same man. But companions leave and many times we do not get to see them again.
In the coming weeks (or even possibly next Saturday) we’re going to be saying goodbye to Clara Oswald. Clara has been a divisive companion by all means: she is by many loved and by many disliked. To me, however, she has been one of Doctor Who’s best elements since the reboot.
