Right face, wrong placeEdit

the picture of Tegan reacting to Adric's death is in the wrong part

Her father's name Edit

William Jovanka? Where does it come from? Prudence Halliwell 16:57, May 21, 2014 (UTC)

As stated in the article, it comes from the novel Divided Loyalties. Shambala108 17:05, May 21, 2014 (UTC)

we may need to add more information about the indivudal episodes that she was in? I think that added more to this character's character arc than it would for other Doctor WHo characters. thanks!! --Sm8900 23:13, February 10, 2020 (UTC)

First Doctor companion? Edit

I don't see how going to the tower with the First Doctor makes her his companion. You cited 2/Brigadier and 3/Sarah as what I assume you're suggesting, BananaClownMan, are precedents, but the Brig already has a continued association with the Second Doctor, both through other stories (TV: The Web of Fear, The Invasion, The Three Doctors) and through The Five Doctors itself. I personally wouldn't say this is reason enough to constitute companionship, but it's a much better case than for Tegan. Sarah, on the other hand, is already a Third Doctor companion regardless of her Five Doctors appearance, so I'm sure that's irrelevant. Danochy 11:57, May 17, 2020 (UTC)

I could be wrong, but it is my understanding that this Wiki takes an arbitrarily very broad interpretation of what "companion" means — precisely to avoid those kinds of debate. That is to say, unless we have very compelling reasons not to, we usually accept anyone whom some factions consider a companion, to be a companion.
One plausible definition of "companion" is a character who serves as a Doctor's sidekick in at least one story — who fills the shoes of "the not-me one, the asking-questions one". Tegan is that to the First Doctor in that story, albeit briefly. If Christina de Souza and Jackson Lake are counted as companions of the Tenth Doctor, and Barnable as a companion of the Eleventh, we can live with Tegan as a companion of the First. --Scrooge MacDuck 12:26, May 17, 2020 (UTC)
That was pretty much my reasoning behind it.BananaClownMan 14:04, May 17, 2020 (UTC)
