I'll never buy RTD's bullshit that Astrid, Jackson Lake and Rosita (???) are companions though. Just dumb.
I don't have a problem with Astrid; she clearly would have been, had she not died.

I thought what RTD said about Jackson Lake was that the Doctor was his companion.

And Adelaide Brooke? Absolute not a companion. If she is, then so is Clent from "The Ice Warriors."

He didn't get in the TARDIS and have a trip, she did. But if that's enough for her to count, then you have to include the other two survivors from Bowie Base. And huge numbers of other people too...

Picking up on a point in there, you know we could solve all the arguments over whether a character who's only in one story really counts as a companion by just ignoring the production codes and declaring Marsperplan to be three linekd stories, like Trial of a Time Lord sometimes is - a six parter, a one parter and another five parter (or even split the last five... sort of, The Daleks Masterplan, The Feast of Steven, The Monk's Revenge, The Destruction of Time)
I long ago decided that people who argue that Sara Kingdom isn't a companion because "she's only in one story" weren't actually familiar with "Daleks' Master-Plan" at all. Sara Kingdom sees more time zones than Harry Sullivan!
I always point people to the companions montage from Resurrection of the Daleks, which featured a (very) recently returned shot of Sara Kingdom from DMP5 (like the episodes were found in July and the shot utilitsed in September or something like that).

Of course the montage does omit Leela for production reasons... namely they forgot...

Re: What else is coming?

I never understood the obsession that some people have with the "Companion" status, who is worthy of it and who isn't. In the show, the Doctor doesn't care, he barely uses the term himself, he's usually talking about his friends, friends who travel with him, and he doesn't come up with complicated rules about who is and who isn't included on the short list.

^True, but then again the Doctor is a mad man (with a box).

Yeah true. That was just one of the things I really didn't like about the Next Doctor. Jackson Lake was essentially sidelined in the second half. He wasn't even allowed to save his own son or go for a flight in his own Tardis.

But not Churchill. The Doctor doesn't trust Churchill enough to let him have access to the TARDIS, yet he'll let Nixon in.
Mind you, I have a vague feeling that Churchill does get a trip in one of the books - maybe Shadow in the Glass.

Players, more likely.

Though I don't remember either well enough to know for sure!

Players does feature Churchill meeting both the Second and Sixth Doctors, but neither let him in the TARDIS (hell, the Second doesn't even have access to his TARDIS). For that matter, the Doctor doesn't even explain who exactly he is to Churchill. I'd explain more, but it would involve spoilers. And those interested can read it themselves, especially now that it's part of the reprint collection for the 50th anniversary.

Re: What else is coming?

That's why I think it must be in Shadow of the Glass if he ever does get inside the TARDIS, but all I recall clearly from that, Churchill-wise, is him arranging for SOE to parachute the 6th Doctor and the Brig into Germany so they can get a sample of Hitler's DNA...
