Not sure about making her a companion, but it'd be good to see her cross paths with her Dad again at some point. Show up unexpectedly mid-story, rescue the Doctor / get rescued by the Doctor, get confused about why he has a difference face, wave a cheery (possibly slightly annoyingly over-cheery) goodbye and be on her away, possibly to show up again some other series.

For reasons of taste and in keeping with the family audience I have desisted from posting a reply here. Suffice to say I would more than welcome an appearance from Gorgeo.. Sorry Georgia Moffat. In fact I think she would be a rather good companion for MS's iteration of the Doctor and would add a unique dynamic.

Cheesy I would say feel free to put what you really feel, but I think even I might blush Tongue

There is no way that Jenny wont be touched upon(!) in some form again sometime soon. Whether it is in a comic or in the show itself or some other form. Now we know she exists, there is just too much potential story there that will go to waste otherwise

I dont know how I didnt see this thread before!! I adore Jenny and I cant wait for her to return (Its going to happen!!) I loved the way she was a bit cheeky with the Doctor in a way that a daughter is with her dad, though that kind of makes their real life relationship feel a little weird now. Or their relationship makes the on screen thing weird? Meh, I dunno. I do know though that I love the character and when that bit of regeneration energy escaped her lips at the end of the episode I was landed!

I loved Jenny. From those first words "Hello dad" I was hooked on her. I love the confidence she has. I totaly think she should come back. But not in DW. Maybe she should meet the Doctor once. I'd love to see how that plays out. But after that, she should work for Torchwood. Who agrees? Smiley

Im sure, as I said above, that she will come back in some form. I dont think Torchwood, but I have a feeling she will end up with, at the very least, a comic series. Though another appearance in DW would be awesome

I think it would be GREAT to have Jenny come back and do some episodes with 11.  We know she ran off to save worlds etc. so there's no reason why they shouldn't cross paths at some point.  That would be so much fun to watch!

I have to say I'm surprised  she hasn't materialised again in one form or another. I had her down for at least one other appearance in DW...if not a spin off of her own. Undecided

Perhaps SJA for an ep....but not Torchwood. Definitely NOT Torchwood. Her and Jack in the same show??? Shocked Tongue

Hate may be taking it a tad too far but the idea behind her was certainly not well accepted. As with most things people tend to have their own ideas of what can/can't happen. Smiley

Ditto, I could never understand the negativity over Jenny. On my list of favorite characters, she's second, listed right after River Song. As I'm typing this, though, I'm thinking of all the things I've read people say negatively about her (like being able to jump between the lasers) and I'm realizing there's a definite parallel here between her and River Song: both characters constantly get bashed because they parallel The Doctor's greatness. People will call them Mary-Sues, yet nobody ever calls The Doctor (or any of his parallels like Captain Jack or The Master) Gary-Stus. In fact, they're popular and praised constantly for all their quirks and "specialness." The only difference is that when women get to have and display abilities that are special and mind defying, suddenly they're dubed Mary-Sues. Nobody questioned when The Doctor threw a rock or something in "Human Nature" and created an impossibly complicated string of events to occur to keep...what was it, the piano from falling on the baby carriage? (I haven't seen the episode in a while.) But he stopped it from happening by throwing one thing at the exact right spot, at the exact right time. But does that make him a Gary-Stu? No. But Jenny, The Doctor's daughter who has been bred with the skills of a trained warrior, is a Mary-Sue because she can backflip through criss crossing lasers.  Huh? It's definitely not fair.

And anyway, I loved her to bits. I know Georgia Moffett just had a baby and all, but I still hold out hope that maybe in the future (before Matt leaves!) that we'll get to see Jenny (as played by Georgia) at least one more time. In fact, one of my dreams is for her to be a full time companion of The Doctor for a season or two. How brilliant would that be? And it would be refreshing to have familial dynamics in the TARDIS (again - even though I never watched the One and Susan years), which would also negate the sexual attraction in the TARDIS. (I also dream of Jenny meeting River one day, because I do believe River and The Doctor are married, and I think step-daughter and step-mom would get along brilliantly...much to The Doctor's dismay.  Grin)

It was a cricket ball, for obvious reasons  Wink

I thought her episode stank worse than the fish people starring in it, but I really liked the character, mostly because Georgia rocks.
(and I think I share Chris' reasons also!)

 Huh? What's the significance of a cricket ball? Sorry, I'm not involved with sports/physical activity/anything of the like, so it's not obvious to me at all.

Georgia rocks.

Couldn't agree more!  Cool

It's a reference back to the cricket loving fifth incarnation of the Doctor  Smiley
