Minor favourites!  
To get us started...

1. Who are your favourite minor characters from the Whoniverse?

2. Do you have any secret or not-so-secret minor character pairings? This can obviously be a major character paired with a minor character.



Note: We define minor characters as characters appearing in no more than three episodes or one story arc. Not Mickey Smith or Jackie Tyler, but Jake Simmonds from "The Rise Of The Cybermen", "The Age of Steel" and "Doomsday"

The REAL Captain Jack but not Torchwood's Captain Jack. Astrid Peth but not Donna Noble, Martha Jones or Rose Tyler.

1. Ross - I adored Ross. Zach and Ida from The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit. Adam Mitchell (yes, I know). Billy Shipton from Blink. Astrid. Jake. Mrs Moore. Emma and Diane from Out of Time. Andrea and Bea from SJA. Cassandra. Flora from Tooth and Claw. Gwyneth. Nancy, Jamie, Algy and Dr Constantine from TEC/TDD. Lynda. LINDA. Tallulah. Real Captain Jack. Cerys from Day One. Everyone we've seen from historical Torchwood.

2. Indeed! Ten/Ross, Mickey/Jake(/Rose), Billy Shipton/Sally Sparrow, Ten/Mrs Moore, Ten/Astrid, Nine/Astrid, Martha/Tallulah, Rose/Flora, Rose/Gwyneth, Rose/Astrid, Jack/real!Jack, Doctor/Diane, Emma/Gwen, Gwen/Cerys, Nine/Lynda, Roger/Davenport, Harriet/Gerald - will probably think of more.

I think my two favourites have to be Ross (he was so adorable) and Sally Sparrow. I also loved Angela <33333 and was so sad when she died. Ummm, the Absorbaloff (because Peter Kay is made of brilliance) and also Reinette fron The Girl in the Fireplace because she is beautiful and the Doctor really fancied her and she was PROPERLY left behind. Does she count? I suppose she's an actual person in history...


So many ships I can't begin to name them. All of them/the Doctor. Ross/everyone. Reinette/Rose would have been amusing. This community is awesome.
will this do?: ross! // doctor whomosquitosong on May 26th, 2008 04:35 pm (UTC)
1. Midshipman Frame, Ross Jenkins(♥), Sally Sparrow, Kathy Nightingale and Larry from Blink are my favourites. I think Sally would be an amazing companion. Tommy, Adam Mitchell (fucked up, but interesting) and Diana are probably my favourites from Torchwood.

2. Ross/Ten, Sally/Larry, Sally/Ross (the fact they never met is irrelevant) and Tosh/Tommy.

So you've done it! You go girl! As soon as I'm off hiatus I'll make sure to bring my proper contribution to this ;).

Anyway, Torchwood taken, I'm a huge fan of Tommy (and Tommy/Tosh), and I also love Beth (you know, the programmed mass destructor who was so witty and all smart); I also have a love/hate relationship with Diane Holmes (still can't get over her femme fatale image and what she did to Owen, though).

See you later then!

1) Novice Hame has to be my favourite Minor Character in Doctor Who and Suize Costello in Torchwood.
I also have a soft sport for The Castellan.

2) Colonel Mace/Captain Price- The Sontaran Stratagem/The Poison Sky FTW. I love it.

Does Torchwood's PC Andy count? I count him sort of under your rules?
poor puzzled moon: [:D] iantoharmyjo on May 26th, 2008 11:59 pm (UTC)
Ahhh. I have asked myself this question. He's been in six episodes... but I'm saying he counts because he's undoubtedly still a minor character. Much loved.. but still minor.

Besides. He's PC Andy. I think he's the exception to every rule :)

Yay for the Andy love!! And other characters of limited duration...
this is my story; this is my songinsevens on May 27th, 2008 10:10 am (UTC)
1. Roger and Davenport! Jake! Frame! And of course the beautiful, beautiful Ross who is, as we speak, recovering from a bump on the head from a trip just before the Sonartans fired at him and, and... yeah. He's alive out there. Somewhere. I also have a secret crush on Sally Sparrow.

2. Roger/Davenport, Ross/Ten (because this basically happened in the show, yeah, you saw this too?), Mickey/Jake.

Tim - Captain Jack Harkness, Billy Shipton - Blink, Eugene Jones - Random Shoes, Jasmine Pearce - Small Worlds (which I'm not sure I understand; children (fictional or otherwise make me feel very uncomfortable at the best of times), Beth Halloran - Sleeper and PC Andy.

P.S
I'm sorry, I didn't answer the second question.


I’m not a very ship-ish/shippy/shipper/chip-ship person. Mainly due to my imagination containing too many specific factors and conditions for a pairing to seem appealing to me; it kills them off before they've had a chance to present themselves.

To contradict this, though, I'm content with almost any pairing that's cannon or otherwise. =)
