Best of the Companions was an Embassy Row production that aired as one of a trio of "punditry segments" on BBC America in August 2011. It aired in the run-up to the premiere of Let's Kill Hitler, ostensibly to offer North American viewers a "memory jog" prior to recommencement of series 6.

Like all episodes of this series, it was notable for featuring exclusively North American celebrities opining about various aspects of the Matt Smith era of Doctor Who.

The show also aired on Space in Canada during the same week as the US broadcast. On BBCA, it aired immediately after the premiere of Let's Kill Hitler.

People interviewed Edit

Unusually, the only person even remotely connected to the production of Doctor Who was Mark Sheppard, BBCA's continuity announcer for Doctor Who. The "hook" of this documentary, like the others in this series, was the fact that the interviewees were all Doctor Who fans who were professional entertainers with some degree of success in the American market.

Home video releases Edit

Best of the Companions was included on the Doctor Who: The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe DVD & Blu-ray.

It was also included on the Doctor Who: The Best of the Doctor 2005-2011, The Documentaries DVD (Region 4 only).
