In the erly days of the show, Doctor Who was an ensemble piece and the companions were just as important as the Doctor until the revolving door started going. By the time of this story there had already been over 15 companions so do you think they should have made more of an attempt to include them?

Its rumoured that Jon Pertwee vetoed the idea of Jamie and Zoe showing up with the Second Doctor because he thought it would be too much, but I think they'd have coped, especially since Hartnell and his gang weren't part of the actual storyline.

I think the companions should have been shown off more. The shows success is at least partly down to them as well.

Old JP is starting to sound like a bit of a diva in all these stories.

I think it would have been nice to see at least a couple of past companions. I'm sure some of them would have been up for it. Why people on shows let the actors get their own way is beyond me

I agree. More companions would have been good, but I do sort of understand why they didn't. It was crowded enough without other main characters to squeeze in.

It would have been nice to bring in the original companions at the very least. I think that's why I prefer The Five Doctors. It's like a big party

Little cameos from some of them would have been better than nothing. It's a shame we didn't get more from them.

Oh my god Karen, you can't just ask someone why they're white!
