  • A wonderful read from start to finish, and yes, I'd say that even if I didn't have an essay in the book -- after all, I hadn't read any of the others before now! As with Chicks Unravel Time, Companion Piece made me want to go back and re-watch episodes I haven't seen in a long time -- even, shockingly, Mel's episodes, which I was never in love with at the time but am now willing to give a second chance based on Liz Barr's enthusiastic essay. It also seems like it's long past time for me to give [...]


  • Full disclosure: I am friends with one of the authors, which is how I was alerted to the existence of this book. Although L M Myles is also a name that is familiar to me from Twitter, being someone who is often retweeted by Paul Cornell. Social media, eh? Anyway, I bought this book because Anna's in it and I trust her to write for Quality Publications.The five stars is because it's a quality publication and I really enjoyed reading it. Not only did I learn stuff, it also made me feel better abo [...]


  • This is an essential read for Whovians, particularly women, to get an excellent view into the psychology and themes of "Doctor Who" across its many seasons (or series, for the Anglophiles). While a couple of the critical essays are a bit overlong, the overwhelming majority are well-written, well-researched pieces that explore the role of companions and their histories. This level of critical analysis (really, academic essays at times) helps give greater social context to many of the companions f [...]


  • So yes, I have an essay in this book (about self-professed "mouth on legs" Aussie firecracker Tegan), and yes, I know several other contributors personally or as a fan of their writing, and yes, I've enjoyed Mad Norwegian books in the past… That said, I'm a huge Doctor Who fan, and this book is really darn good, so regardless of any personal feelings, I would say the same thing. It's five star, it's fantastic for dipping in and out of, nodding furiously when an author says something I agree wi [...]


  • Yet another collection of essays by the folks behind Chicks Dig Time Lords and Chicks Unravel Time, Companion Piece discusses the characters who travel in the TARDIS as guests of the Doctor. Naturally, most of the essays are on Classic Who companions, simply because there are so many more of them, as opposed to New Who companions. But I'm trying to broaden my Who-rizons and learn more about the Classic era, so I was more than happy to read about companions I've never even heard of, such as Steve [...]


  • So I've learnt that it is possible to read too many essays about doctor who in one sitting. I've also learnt that everyone views the doctor's companions slightly differently, and that many of us are able to find feminist meaning in work not intended to be feminist.


  • Companion Piece is another book in the "Chicks Dig" series (other volumes include: Chicks Dig Time Lords, Chicks Dig Comics, etc.). This essay collection focuses on the companions in Doctor Who. The essays represent a variety of viewpoints, but often have a Feminist perspective. What I love about Companion Piece is that the essays really get you to think and to re-consider one's opinions about various eras of Doctor Who and the companions therein. This collection begs the reader to reconsider co [...]


  • nwhytevejournal/2530005mlThis is the sixth of the Geek Girl Chronicles, and the third of them to collect essays by women about Doctor Who (following on from Chicks Dig Time Lords and Chicks Unravel Time). Published earlier this year, it is eligible for next year's Hugo nominations as Best Related Work; the first in the series won that category in 2011, and Mad Norwegian Press has had three more nominations since (Chicks Unravel Time, Chicks Dig Gaming and Queers Dig Time Lords).Obviously this is [...]


  • A collection of essays examining the many and various companions that have traveled with the Doctor over the years. I read the earlier collection, Chicks Dig Time Lords and really enjoyed it so I was happy to get my hands on this one and it did not disappoint.I have to admit I am a Classic Who fan and not a New Who fan at all, so I found the older companions much easier and interesting to read about but all of the essays were well written and make interesting points. Some covered the same compan [...]


  • These are the people who can't ever tell me too much about Doctor Who. They're just the best, in general and at pointing out interesting things about one of my favorite shows. Plus, short essays. So much easier to read in pieces than full-length academia-type books.


  • An interesting collection of essays on the companions of Doctor Who, ranging from reminiscences to more academic pieces. It's well worth a read, but not my favourite of the Mad Norwegian Press books.


  • Picked up a copy at Gallifrey One and am very excited to read it (though I have already, predictably, read the essay about Polly and enjoyed it).
