In the the novel of Arc Of Infinity the Doctor didn't mind her return at all.

I think it was taken when casting was announced. She later went on to be Paul McGann's agent for a while.
She was McGann's agent when he was offered the part, so he had double reasons to ask her whether to say yes. Her comment... "Paul, you gotta decide if you can play someone with two hearts and no dick.".

Re: Favorite Incarnation Of The Doctor

Considering he was the first Doctor to actually kiss a Companion, that shouldn't have been a worry. If the movie had resulted in more TV episodes with Paul McGann, he very well could have been a more "romantic" Doctor.

I'm going from the rather obvious subtext Peter Davison put in his performance at the time.

Re: Favorite Incarnation Of The Doctor

Peter Davison said flat-out that his favorite Companion was Nyssa, so it's not a shock that he liked Tegan less.

However, he did a credible job of convincing the audience that he regretted her decision to leave. Of course, when she came running back and saw the TARDIS gone, I had to wonder if she'd changed her mind AGAIN...?

Yeah, and the Doctor was clearly trying to give her the brush off before Tegan and Nyssa pretty much made the decision for him.
After the events of Arc Of Infinity, Tegan travlled with the Doctor because he wanted her.

No way. The Doctor was barely containing his disdain. Watch the end of the episode again. (Although, he did seem to be used to her by the end of "Resurrection of the Daleks.")
That "disdain" was a bit of the First Doctor that Davison wanted to instill. It really wasn't uncommon for the Fifth Doctor get cross with his companions--he even once called Adric a "young idiot" to his face.

I don't think it was so much that as Davison thought Nyssa was more of a "traditional" companion (at the time). Pretty much there to be deferential to the Doctor and not challenge & question him like Tegan often did.

David Tennant is my favourite "Doctor," but whichever one had this delicious piece of crumpet as his sidekick can't be all bad, either ...



For if I were he, I, too, would have to whisk her away in the Tardis and have my Doctor Whovian way with her.
As a viewer, I loved the character, because she was a nagging bitch often (Though she had a very loyal and smart/resourceful streak as well, which kept the Doctor from just wanting to drop her any old place). She was a rare passenger that happened upon traveling by mistake and for longer than Barbara and Ian, she bitched about wanting to get home, until she finally did get left, and she was sorry she got left. (And then she ended up right back on board at the end of the next Serial, LOL)

There was more than once she tried 5's patience, and he had to count to 10 to gain his compusure (And 5 was overly agreeable, according to 6). So, if you're planning on keeping her for a tasty morsel, you might consider a good pair of ear plugs
Turlough is the one I didn't take a shining to, though Mark Strickson has gotten more handsome over the years.
