Billie and Elizabeth Shook Sci-Fi

Two of Doctor Who's best-loved and popular companions have been listed in the Total Sci-Fi website's Top 25 Women Who Shook Sci-Fi.

Billie Piper, who is most well-known for playing Rose Tyler since 2005, came at number 7 in the list, Total Sci-Fi say, "Out of all the new Who’s companions, it is indisputably Rose Tyler who has had the most impact on both fans and the Doctor himself. The plucky young woman is one of the rare companions to fall for the Doctor, while the Doctor is unable to get over losing her in the second series. Thankfully, it isn’t the last we see of the shopgirl-turned-deity."

Elizabeth Sladen, who became known for her highly popular role as Sarah Jane Smith since 1973, came at number 20 in the list: "The shrewd investigative journalist of The Sarah Jane Adventures first popped up as the Third Doctor’s assistant in The Time Warrior and went on to accompany the Fourth Doctor on his jaunts. The SJA proved the character was strong enough to warrant a series of her own, and saw Sarah Jane develop a newfound motherly instinct."

Personally, I think both these two (especially Liz) should have come a lot closer to number 1!
