I think that was deliberate - between them the Doctor and River had changed the course of history, so of course things were slightly different. At least, that is how I reconcile it :)

Like IMMANotListening I was also underwhelmed by the finale. As I was when the 10th doctor died. Next season Matt Smith will end his Dr Who carreer so by then the doctor will be changed and the pond story line will end. I'd like that. Untill this season I've seen enough Pond and the story actually has been told now. I'm looking forward to a very dark and scary season where the 11th doctor will finally snap and lose it.That's what I hope is going to happen.

Steven Moffat announces "The final days of the Ponds are coming during the next series. Then the Doctor will meet a new friend"

I'm glad!

I would love it if just once the Doctor had a companion who wasn't very important really but he just liked having them around.

Also, there needs to be less sexual tension on the tardis. As well as having someone who isn't crucial to the fate of the universe, it'd be nice if it was absolutely clear that they are a companion and not a concubine.

I second the vote for Bill Bailey.

I third the vote on Bill Bailey!

Also, there should be no sexual tension ever  between the doctor and the companion. Simply because the Doctor can not love a human being and it's inappropriate for the young viewers seeing a 900 hundred year old magician have intercourse with... well... even a 50 year old would be weird. Becuase lets say the doctor instead is 90 years old... 50 would make... 5 years old... Oh god... what have i done!  :psyduck:

Luckily for him super-paedophilia isn't outlawed where he's from.

Clearly he wouldn't be able to resist Bill Bailey though, so that's out of the picture.

DrPhibes do you have a weird phobia of Bill Bailey or is he for some reason banned from American TV? (I'd find it hilarious if that was the case.)

I realized Bill Bailey was in the Christmas special so he probably won't be on a next series!  :psyduck:

I thought Donna was great, it was nice to have a character not in love with the doctor and a bit older than usual - but it would be good as I've said before if we could have a companion who was interesting but not universe-critical. I find it hard to believe that EVERY SINGLE PERSON who the Doctor meets turns out to be the one person on the planet who can avert disaster merely by existing.

To be fair, they at least justify most of it around that being the reason he met them (IE Amy), or that they're important because they've been on the Tardis to begin with (Donna and Rose).

But yeah, just someone who's around for the heck of it would be pretty cool. But at the same time I'd wonder what would be their storyline if such a thing were to happen...

I always thought a kid would be a perfect companion for the doctor, except when they're about to die.

I think after seeing Amy a kid is the worst thing the doctor can have. She will lose ALL kids-things! Being young and unspoiled (no pun intended) is what a kid is being about. So in Amy's case only meeting the Doctor ruined her a bit. There should be a Donna ending to that season if there is ever one with a kid.
