The Infinite Companion (annotated edition) by PaulHanley The Infinite Companion (annotated edition) by PaulHanley

So here's a much-requested "key" to the companions group shot. 

The Infinite Companion by PaulHanley

Obviously what defines a "companion" is mega-subjective (even the BBC branding division can't seem to decide just what that word means).  So don't take any inclusions or exclusions too seriously.  There's plenty of folks I would've loved to include who you can make a case for- Vincent Van Gogh, Olla, William Shakespeare, Kate Stewart, Lynda with a "Y", Sally Sparrow, a LOT of one-off companions from the books, etc.  Just know that I researched the hell out of this and included as many characters as any one sane person with a semblance of a life could.  Damn near everyone got considered (except Splinx- who I'm really annoyed I didn't know about till this was done).  Huge thanks to all the people at Tardis Data Core for creating an indispensable resource for making this:…

I've tried to keep the notes pithy and non-spoilery.  Each entry only mentions the media the character is mainly associated with, not all (for example, it's a given that most of the TV companions have also turned up in audio plays, comics, etc).

Love it! I miss her and the doctor already

If you'r going to include Richard Mace of all people, why not Will Chandler from "The Awakening"?
PaulHanley Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2016  Professional
B/c I like Richard Mace more? :P

Seriously though- it's a fair question, but isn't Jane Hampden from the same story even more deserving?  (Side note- in prose stories, it's suggested that both became actual companions for a while.)  And what about Commander Scott from "Earthshock", Bret Vyon or Vincent Van Gogh?  The picture would have been 4 times as big if I'd included every name I came up with when I started brainstorming this.  Like I said in the description, it's arbitrary and best not to take too seriously. ;)

Only person that I can think of being missing is Gareth jenkins!
PaulHanley Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2015  Professional
Gareth was erased from history during the Time War, when the Dalek Time Controller purged Jimmy Saville out of existence for being too evil (even Daleks have their limits).
OttselSpy24 Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2015
Thank you for including Herbert!
lightninglana Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2015
Wow, can't believe that even the DWA companions are here, though I'm not sure if I saw Wolfgang 'Wolfie' Ryter here. I'm pretty sure if Heather counts he should. May be that I just missed him. Awesome anyway, especially since I only managed I'd say 20% of these but I did recognise most of the tv ones, but didn't notice Danny or Mike. Did recognise some non- tv ones though.
PaulHanley Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2015  Professional
Mike and Danny are there (102 and 103- you may have missed Mike b/c it's the older version from the 4th Doctor "Hornet's Nest" audios, where he was more of a proper companion than the 3rd Doctor days).  But like it says right in the description- this was never meant to be a "complete" accounting of the companions.  It'd be a fool's errand, b/c who does and doesn't count as a companion is subjective, and new ones are being added all the time (Big Finish has announced two since this was finished).  Plus there's just the matter of making an aesthetically good picture.  

Wolfie's one of the ones I did deliberately snub.  His name was one that was on a list at one point and got cut (along with a good 30 other names or so).  It's no offense to the character, it's just that, like your comment implies... the DWA companions aren't exactly the best-known to most Who fans (I only know them myself  through the research for this).  There's only so much room in the pic, so I just took one from the 10th (Heather- made sense b/c of the Jamie connection and b/c she was the longest-running one) and Decky (for being non-human and visually interesting). 
lightninglana Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2015
I do know they were there, I was just annoyed I didn't spot them. I was a kid when Heather was in the comics, and a grown up kid when Decky was, so I just have a slight soft spot for them. Not fussed about Wolfie, thought it might be because there were too many to squish into it. This is seriously brilliant though and I can't fathom how patient you must be to have done this as they are all recognisable, if the person seeing it is a big enough whovian. I apparently am not, so kudos to you for being more knowledgeable than me.

UNbelievably AWESOME!

 I had no idea there were so many, and I'm a complete Doctor Who nerd. This will come in so handy. And it's so amazingly detailed, I can recognize everyone! (At least the ones I recognize.)

Love the drawing style, it's clean and crisp and clear, and just has a beautiful flow of line.

2- You forgot Death, or you didn't, I always saw Death as one of his companions, but that's me and wiki thingies.

I've also never heard of Splinx until now, but having looked her up, it pleases me that the cat I painted on the custom figure I presented to Colin that time happens to bear a resemblance - serendipity is cool ;)

Excellent Paul! Your short descriptions are hilarious!
And I agree with the others; you should definitely be an honorary companion for your dedication to the subject. Though I don't know if the commissioner would've appreciated that, but it'd be pretty easy to sneak yourself in there somehow!
