Dennis and Gnasher are stars of the British comic strip, Dennis the Menace and Gnasher. As his name implies, Dennis is a troublemaking schoolboy who likes add excitement to a dull day, especially with the help of his slingshot. Coincidentally, he sure looks a lot like the British version of this guy.
Detective Chief Inspector John Luther (Idris Elba) works for the Serious and Serial Crime Unit on the BBC show Luther. He’s a brilliant, gritty detective who often toes the line between following the law and breaking it. Either way, tweed’s never looked better than it does on him.
Change is good. The 11th Doctor knows this. That’s why he wears a bowtie now. Bowties are cool. And sure, his regeneration was a little rocky and maybe the TARDIS needed a new desktop theme anyway, but he’s got everything under control. Really. You can stop laughing at any time.
After first meeting the Doctor when she was seven, Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) thought for years he was an imaginary friend. Until he showed up again the day before her wedding and it turned out her Raggedy Doctor was really an alien Time Lord (tangentially, what is up with the Doctor and redheads’ weddings?).
Accidentally drawn onto the Doctor’s ship on her wedding day, Donna Noble never thought she’d see the lonely alien man again. But unable to get him out of her mind, she began searching for him wherever something strange or paranormal cropped up, eventually joining him as a full-time companion.
Sherlock Holmes’s flatmate and blogger seems harmless enough when you first meet him, but don’t let the frumpy exterior and questionable taste in sweaters fool you. Underneath the plaid and knits is a sharp-eyed ex-soldier and adrenaline junkie who loves the chase almost as much as his partner-in-crime-solving does.
Mycroft, Sherlock’s older and possibly smarter brother, prefers observation to action. He humbly insists he occupies but a minor role in Her Majesty’s government (if by ‘minor,’ you mean ‘occasionally IS Her Majesty’s government’), however, he gets tetchy when asked how his diet’s going (it’s going fine, thank you).
Time agent, conman, companion – Jack Harkness has been all of that and more over the course of his long, strange life. If he’s not off adventuring with the Doctor, this omnisexual, immortal flirt can be found running the Torchwood Institute on Earth, defending the planet when the Doctor can’t.
