btw the other companion who didn’t wander off.

Sometimes I think I should take up running, just in case I meet the Doctor.
The route into the TARDIS can be a surprisingly common one, if you happen to be (or have been) female, youngish, human and British during the last 50-odd years of Earth history. All you have to do is wait for an alien invasion of some sort, and keep your eye out for a big blue box. If you see one, chances are there will be an eccentric man somewhere in the vicinity, barking strange orders and running about.
Now, here comes the tricky bit, you need to make yourself useful to him, and sort of insinuate your way into his attention. This can either be because you need saving from the aliens and he can’t resist a damsel (or mansel) in distress, or because you’re in a position of authority and he needs you to do what he says right away. It might help to see if you can join your nearest branch of UNIT, or, if you’re a journalist like Sarah Jane Smith, just barge your way in and start asking questions until you and he are face to face.
What you need to do is be ready to be won over by him, be enchanted by his personality, and then occasionally bring his rampaging ego up short. It’s a bit like looking after a toddler, if a toddler had access to weaponised Lego.
The best part is that the post starts off with this phrase:

Before we get into the full glory of this exciting web feature, let’s clear one thing up: if the companion you feel most kinship with is missing from this quiz, we’re sorry. Clearly we couldn’t put all of the companions in, or there’s a very real chance it would become less a fun way to think about your favorite TV show and more of an administrative nightmare, so we picked the six key TARDIS-dwellers of the modern Whovian era: Rose, Martha, Donna, River Song, Amy and Rory.
Each one has a different approach to the bizarre life they find themselves living, and each one has characteristics that help them adjust to the weirdness, the stress and all the running.
But which of these characteristics is the one closest to your own? There’s only one way to find out…
This is the first quiz that told us that we’re not K-9.
