New Doctor Who Companion Poll

Candy Jar Books, the Welsh publishers of Companions: Fifty Years of Doctor Who Assistants, have revealed the results of their poll to find the Doctor's best friend.
Tegan Jovanka was voted the programme's most popular travelling companion after receiving almost a quarter of all votes.
Janet Fielding - who played Tegan on TV from Logopolis (1981) to Resurrection of the Daleks (1984) and more recently for Big Finish - said it was "fantastic.. and unexpected" that "the Mouth-on-legs" had topped the survey.
The book's author, Andy Frankham-Allen commented: "I would have expected either Sarah Jane or Rose to win, but it's pleasing to see a companion who's only been obliquely referenced [just] twice since 2005 win. Seems there's still a lot of love for the [classic era of the 19]80's  and Fielding's" portrayal.
The complete list is here:

1) Tegan Jovanka
2) Sarah Jane Smith
3) Donna Noble
4) Rose Tyler
5) Ace [McShane]
6) Romana/Jamie McCrimmon
7) Nyssa
8) River Song
9) Amy Pond
10) Leela
