New Verity! Ep 73: Farewell (& Not-So-Well) Companions

Verity logo (chair with Tom Baker scarf) for Episode 73

We thought this provided some nice symmetry with our episode about companion arrivals. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we talk about how companions leave the TARDIS. Many are forced out, some choose to leave, a few even die. We have some definite favorites and some just-as-definite least favorites. Also, Deb objectifies hair and Lynne wants to spray King Yrcanos with a spray bottle. It’s lots of good fun!

What’s your favorite/least-favorite way to see a companion take their leave of the Doctor? Which stories do you love, and which don’t hold water? Let us know in the comments!
