K Tempest Tumbles

I'm K. Tempest Bradford, a writer, blogger, tech geek, and all around nerd. I'm such a big science fiction/fantasy/speculative fiction fan that I even write it (I know, pretty hard core!).

I have a non-Tumblr blog and that's where the majority of my long-form posts go. This blog is for my more fannish activities, link sharing, and squeeness.

Why do all the New Who companions have to have some mystical destiny? Child of the TARDIS, most important woman in the universe, etc. I miss the old days when we could identify with our companions and they didn’t need a tragic story/backstory.’

THANK YOU. jesus yes.
But I want y’all to notice something: the companions in NewWho that all have this special destiny stuff? All. White. ALL.
Also: it’s just super unimaginative. It’s the same over and over and over.
The new companion will be the same. We’ll find out that she’s the daughter of the son of the TARDIS and was specially made in a bottle in order to be the Doctor’s wife once River gets stuck in the Library.

  16. cuttled said: Well, Rose was still the same person, she even got her own Doctor and her own father. Nothing tragic happened to her? Not Martha either, she got Mickey and her own life. Donna was the only companion with a tragic faith, so how can you even say that?
