A Companion to the Doctor’s Companions: Adric

doctorwho:

Sadly the tale of Adric ends with tragedy, which does rather undercut all the griping about how annoying a companion he could be. In the middle of another ruck with Cybermen, Adric finds himself stranded on a space-ship headed directly to Earth, the controls of which are locked by a logic puzzle. Cometh the hour, cometh the geek, and Adric sets to work, finishing in good time to save the day. But does he? No.

Here’s that final scene. Weird to think you used to be able to grapple with Cybermen, eh?

[Commence small break from thinking about the Doctor’s hair in the finale pics.]

Adric is amazing. He was a bit whiny with Five, but with Four he was really quite awesome.

Despite the fact that when I rewatch an episode with him and Five (other than Five’s first episode Castrovalva as there is almost no interaction between the two in that episode) I see Adric as an embodiment of people who whine and complain about wanting “their” Doctor back (I’m looking at you Tennant fangirls, you know who you are). He’s annoying, but he still has many redeeming aspects to me.
