Do we need a doctor?

I mentioned a while back that I was undecided on the new Doctor Who.  Frankly, I sort of liked her, although something bothered me about the new show.  When I watched the New Year's Spacial, which I liked, I realized what I didn't like.  It's her crew--her travelling companions.  I don't like any of them.

Now, historically, the doctor has traveled with a female companion.  There have been many exceptions. Matt Smith traveled with a couple--Amy and Rory for quite a while.  I didn't like Rory, either.  

I guess, now that the doctor has had a sex change, traveling with a lone female might be viewed as strange.  I don't know.  I've said before she should get a dog--preferably a golden retriever.  As far as traveling companions, I'd be happy to travel with her.  I don't really like any of the whiny sniveling companions she has now and they should all go home.  I did like the older black lady, but they killed her off.  So much for what I think.

Maybe she should wander around by herself for a while. Maybe go to beaches in a skimpy bathing suit and play Frisbee with her new dog.  I'd like that. And she could un-jam the sod machine with her sonic screwdriver. That would be awesome. And she could give dog treats to her dog. Even more awesome.

One last thought: They got rid of Unit due to budget cuts.  I thought that was kind of clever, actually.

And that's my take on the new doctor, after a whole season went by. Of, course these BBC seasons are fairly short.
