One of the most enduring traditions of Doctor Who are his companions. That's the name fans have given for the Doctor's ever-present sidekicks. They serve as a counter-balance to the Doctor, as adventurers who can do the action that the Doctor can't, as a pair of new eyes, as a sounding board for the Doctor to reflect, as an excuse for exposition, as variety from the Doctor's eccentric ways, and sometimes (for male and female viewers) just plain eye-candy. The companions have varied wildly, including women, men, aliens, and even a robot. There have been companions from the past, present, and future. This infographic from The Daily Mirror  presents a great overview and interesting facts about these indelible characters. Click to enlarge:
