Companions (anthology), per precedent: see this talk page.
Talk about it here.
Wanted: attractive young girl (boy may be considered). Must have strong ankles, healthy lungs, and no family ties. Ability to say, "What's that, Doctor?", in many different ways a necessity. Bizarre taste in clothes may be an advantage. Must be able to deal with traumatic situations involving life and death with no obvious after effects.
They didn't always ask to travel with the Doctor. And even if they did, they didn't know what the consequences would be.
Were Ian's travels foretold? What paradoxical conundrums faced the Eighth Doctor, Charley and Will Shakespeare in ancient Troy? And just how difficult is it to get a job when you can't account for a gap of several years on your CV?

- While this anthology was technically themed around the general concept of companionship rather than simply the Doctor's companions, this was the most obvious interpretation of that theme, so many stories chose to focus on the companions over the Doctor himself, leading a large number of stories in this anthology not to feature the Doctor at all. For this reason, the Second and Sixth Doctors fail to appear in this anthology.
