My favorite companion of the Nu Whoverse has gotta be Donna Noble.
Perhaps she won me over with her feistiness. Or perhaps it’s because Catherine Tate’s casting caused so much uproar and divisiveness amongst fans and she ended up proving them all wrong. Or perhaps it was because I was tired of the Doctor getting so embroiled in romantic tension with his companions, and I needed the snarky level-headedness of someone who successfully maintained and made believable a platonic relationship with him instead.
Or perhaps it’s because she’s closer in age to me than the previous two and I could realistically live vicariously through her.
So of course I’d initially planned on a Donna-inspired outfit for companion day. But time passed and so did Donna, and I fell in love with the Ponds instead and then had to mourn their passing and now…well, now here we are.
Clara Oswin Osgood. The newest companion. The Impossible Girl. And although it’s too early to tell whether she’ll win my respect as Donna did or my heart as the Ponds had, Clara has managed to pique my curiousity. And I do love her sense of style.
Of all the companions in Nu Who, Clara seems the most real. She actually changes her clothes. At one point, we even see her with wet hair and a towel slung over her shoulders, making it seem like she truly lives in the TARDIS. Which is weird because she’s also the first companion who spends as much time in her daily life as she does traveling with the Doctor.
But this is not a Doctor Who blog; it’s a style blog. And to channel my inner Clara, I had to decide which of her outfits I could easily replicate. Can you guess which I chose?
