Tonight ends the David Tennant run as Doctor Who. The second episode of The End of Time has already aired in the United Kingdom, but BBC America will air that episode this evening in the U.S. In honor of David Tennant and the magnificent women who served as his companion, we have an extra long Saturday Smackdown for you this week.
Up for your choice, this week is which companion is your favorite: Rose Tyler, Martha Jones or Donna Noble?
Rose Tyler played by Billie Piper is introduced in the revived series as the ninth Doctor’s (Christopher Eccleston). Rose is a working class girl who has a job as a London shop girl. She lives with her mother Jackie and her sometime boyfriend is Mickey Smith (no relationship to Sarah Jane). Rose’s enthusiastic embrace of the Doctor’s lifestyle leads her to fall in love with him. While the series typically refrained from showing the romantic relationships between the Doctor and his companions, Rose works her way under the Doctor’s jaded skin, giving him a new lease of life.
