Companion(s)

Tegan Jovanka

Tegan Jovanka is an Australian air stewardess who accidentally stumbled into the TARDIS in Logopolis. She has a tendency to moan. In Time-Flight she was left behind in her native time, but in Arc of Infinity she happened to run into the Doctor and rejoined him on his travels.

Vislor Turlough

Vislor Turlough is an alien who was exiled to Earth. He was posing as a schoolboy at Brendon School. In Mawdryn Undead he made a deal with the Black Guardian to kill the Doctor in exchange for returning home. He did not manage to do so during that story but did stow away on the TARDIS and then ask the Doctor to allow him to join him on his travels. In Enlightenment he cancelled the deal.
