I really don’t. I mean, it’s okay that they’re there and he interacts with them and stuff, because otherwise he’d talk to himself, the Tardis, or just have to break the fourth wall and talk to us (which would be cute, but kind of wearing after a while). So he needs some other meat thing to yack at so we can watch him do stuff besides poke at the Tardis controls. But other than that, I don’t care about the companions. I don’t identify with them. I don’t need to see the Doctor “through their eyes.” I have my own eyes. I only identify with the Doctor. He’s the one I care about.
And that’s all I have to say about that.
