If you watch the popular show Doctor Who, then you might just have a favorite companion. I know I do; among the top rated of the companions (not necessarily the number one) would have to be the independent minded, funny, and sassy Donna Noble potrayed by the hilarious actor Catherine Tate. Besides being known as being the “Best temp in Chiswick” Donna is also the most important woman in the universe.
So why do some Whovians hate Donna so much? According to some, they “Just do.” Honestly I think that hating Donna is really narrow minded, especially because of the fact that she helps the doctor to be compassionate and nurturing toward those around him (Jenny in “The Doctors Daughter” S04E06, or the family in the “Fires of Pompeii” S04E03, the list goes on). Not only that, but Donna is not remotely romantically attached to the Doctor, which creates a brother-sister friendship between the two. The moment all Donna fans craze over was when the already awesome companion became “Doctor-Donna.” When her brain became Timelord and we got to see what would happen is the Doctor were Donna.
The other trait that I love about Donna is how she has a certain “go big or go home” personality. Donna has an opinion, and will not be pressured to keep it in no matter who is telling her to do so (Daleks,and even the Doctor when he is making rules). One of the instances where Donna speaks out is when Donna encounters the Shadow Proclamation. Donna is one of the few humans who interact with the Shadow Proclamation, and when she does, they look down on her because of her humanity. She proceeds to put them in their place, just as she does everyone else who tries to judge her because of who she is (or is not).
