The Kat’s Character Guides: Leela

Before we jump into the era of the Fifth Doctor (Peter Davison), let us stay for a little while longer in the Fourth Doctor’s (Tom Baker) era, as I believe that we cannot truly move on without talking about the other companions of the Fourth Doctor.

The Kat’s Character Guide: Amy Pond and Rory Williams (Spoilers!)

The Doctor, over the years, sometimes has more than one companion aboard the TARDIS at the same time. However, none of them had the unique position and relationship that Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill) had with the Doctor, and in particular, with the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith). Granted, Amy came on board the TARDIS before the ever faithful Rory did, but … Continue reading The Kat’s Character Guide: Amy Pond and Rory Williams (Spoilers!)
