Do you think the TARDIS dynamic works best as the Doctor with a single companion or with more than one. Vote above, post below.

I generally prefer to see the Doctor have two companions. I think it adds to the stories. However, I think the current team doesn't work as well with them being married. I think it distracts from a lot of the stories and makes it too much about personal dramatics and domestics and I don't care about that. Not in this show. I want adventures in space not dinner with the inlaws.

I preferred when it was just Rose/Donna/Amy than with Rory/Mickey so just the one for me Smiley But it depends on the people I guess

I loved the stories with Nyssa, Tegan and Adric, I think they worked quite well. I quite like Rory and Amy together in the way I quite liked Rose and Mickey. I prefer multiple as it means they get in to more trouble, but I do think that if they carry on with it, they should find a way to use the multiple companions in the same way as they did in the classic episodes.

I'm sort of torn. I love stories with both multiple and single companions. I think perhaps it works best with one though because the stuff to do isn't spread so thinly and nobody is left as a third wheel.

I think if the dynamic works well between the companions then it's great to have more than one but if they are bickering or just don't gel well then I think it gets distracting. I've gone with just a single companion as my option. You can't really go wrong with that.

I've chosen one, but I could really go either way. It depends on the story and the characters, but one companion is a lot easier to write quality stories for.

I like multiple companions but I think two should be the max and I think they shouldn't be romantically involved. Not with each other and definitely not with the Doctor.

I like having multiple companions. I think they way that they have done it in NuWho isn't the best representation of how it can be done, but based on how it worked in the classic run I think it works well

I like multiple companions, but I like the classic way of having them not knowing each other but being thrust together rather than the married couple we have now

I think multiple is better, but I wasn't keen on them being married like Amy and Rory
