So, Dinosaurs On A Spaceship featured Egyptian queen Nefertiti as one of The Doctor’s new ‘gang’. We’ve seen the Time Lord run into historical characters in the past: Charles Dickens, Agatha Christie, Winston Churchill. He’s even had a variety of otherworldy companions – such as Adric, Leela and Romana.
The question is: would it be cool if The Doctor ‘adopted’ an historical figure for a certain amount of time, or even for a single series, as he did with Donna Noble? Could you see him going on adventures with someone straight out of the history books, poking fun at their achievements or well-documented quirks?
I thought the inclusion of Nefertiti was a brilliant twist, but it could have been played out a little bit more. In the same way that Asylum Of The Daleks teased Jenna Louise Coleman’s future involvement, I sort of hope that Nefertiti or some other historical character might stow away in the TARDIS for some fun and games. What about you?
