can we have an alien companion
inorite? Hasn’t been a (televised) alien companion since Turlough. That’s far too long.
I fear that the emphasis on “identifiable” companions is too strong now. Personally, it’s always baffled me. Two questions arise in my mind:
1) Who said it’s necessary for a companion to be identifiable to be well-liked, sympathetic, well written and/or popular?
2) Who said viewers can’t identify with non-human companions?
