The most important thing is the question of who my assistant would be.
I didn't watch many of the episodes with Clara in them. Recently I have only watched Dr Who when Daughter has wanted to and that hasn't been very often.
On the other hand, I did see most of the Amy Pond / Matt Smith episodes and rather enjoyed them - the episode when Amy gets old having apparently waited years for the Doctor to return was one of the great episodes of any series ever. And who can forget her police woman outfit? I rather liked the Van Gogh episode too, though daughter was strangely opposed to this one.
The main problem with Amy was that she had stupid boyfriend in tow all the time - didn't like him
The least said about the male companion, Adso (?), the better
And I was a teenager when Louise Jameson brightened up Saturday evenings as the extraordinarily-dressed Leela. Untameable I would think
And I also remember Sarah Jane from the Tom Baker era (and can just about remember the blonde girl who assisted Jon Pertwee)
My application is in the post.
