Hands down, Donna Noble was by far the best companion in the new "Doctor Who" series. Having a Who companion of this caliber and strength was a breath of fresh air. She was tough, caring, smart, resourceful, fierce, loyal and the best person the Doctor needed after his most recent adventures. Catherine Tate's performance was filled with powerful emotion and humor that brought the show to new heights.
"The Runaway Bride"
Donna Noble materialized randomly (but not really) in the TARDIS and into our lives, and immediately showed all of us that she would not be someone that we would ever forget. The first adventure with these was incredibly fun, bizarre and ultimately tragic. However, her arrival was necessary and revealed that even though the Doctor was in an extremely dark place, she was the one who told him to stop when it mattered the most. She became an anchor to his unchecked rage. Despite the life-changing event, Donna refused to go with the Doctor this time but her introduction was by far one of the best in the whole series.
"Partners In Crime"
Donna returned and through a series of ridiculous and unlikely events, was reunited with the Doctor. Despite all odds, they found each other in one of the funniest moments in the episode. The timing and snappy reactions was a perfect bit of much-needed levity. Time and space could not keep them apart and together again, they defeated the alien threat. Her intelligence and determination were some of her most important attributes, yet again helping the Doctor when he needed it the most. She got things done and showed incredible resourcefulness. She was independent and was someone you couldn't push around.
The Doctor and Donna would be traveling on forever, at least that's what the latter had hoped. Their adventures seemed more strange than the last and each one left us emotionally drained. They saved countless civilizations and changed so many lives in innumerable ways. However, their last one would the most heart-breaking of them all. Despite gaining the knowledge and ability to save everyone, Donna could not hold onto it forever, forcing the Doctor to make one of the most difficult decisions of all. Donna didn't die. She wasn't lost in time. She had to lose every bit of knowledge the Doctor and her adventures and we had to let go of this amazing woman.
"The most important woman in the whole wide universe"
Companions have come and gone, and while every single one of them brought something unique, Donna Noble stood out above the rest. She had been told she was never good enough or smart enough, but soon she realized how important she really was. We could all relate to that and never be convinced otherwise. Her role and her addition to the show was an important one, showing that everyone needs to give themselves more credit and embrace our best qualities, and like Donna Noble, be magnificent.
