HEROES OF DOCTOR WHO DODO CHAPLETT

A CHARACTER THAT LITERALLY SEEMED TO POP INTO EXISTENCE ABOARD THE TARDIS, DODO SEEMED TO BE A QUICK UNPLANNED REPLACEMENT COMPANION TO FILL THE TARDIS. BELIEVED TO BE AN ANCESTOR OF ANNE CHAPLETT, A WOMAN THE DOCTOR HAD TO LET DIE IN THE MASSACRE OF ST BARTHOLEMEW AGAINST STEVEN’S PROTESTS, SHE WAS QUICKLY ADOPTED BY THE DOCTOR AND STEVEN. HER ORIGIN STORY CAM MANY YEARS LATER IN THE BBC BOOK SALVATION WHICH GAVE HER A MORE SOLID REASON FOR BEING IN THE TARDIS.

THE CHARACTER WAS LET DOWN BY POOR WRITING BUT FACED THE CELESTIAL TOYMAKER, THE MONOIDS IN THE ARK AND THE WAR MACHINES WHICH SET THE THREAD OF DOCTOR WHO ADVENTURES IN THE REAL WORLD OF TODAY USING LONDON LANDMARKS. SHE LEFT BY GOING TO A NIGHTCLUB AND THE MUSIC MUST HAVE BEEN GOOD BECAUSE SHE DECIDED NOT TO RETURN. AGAIN THIS WAS A FAULT OF THE WRITERS WHO JUST SHOWED THEY HAD NO IDEA WHAT TO DO WITH HER. SHE HAD REAPPEARED IN THE MISSING ADVENTURES NOVELS, A GREAT PLATFORM TO EXPAND AND IMPROVE ON COMPANIONS BUT AS YET HAS NEVER RETURNED TO THE SHOW OR THE BIG FINISH AUDIO ADVENTURES.
