Who's the greatest Doctor Who companion?

Hey there cult enthusiasts,

Welcome to my debate about who should the title of best companion on Doctor Who ever! I'm going to be going through the companions that I love and admit that I will miss some out because I haven't seen all of them in action.

 I will start with Rose; she was a sassy, brave, empathic and sometimes moody nineteen year old. Watching her journey was certainly incredible as she started as a girl who didn't have many aspirations and didn't believe she'd have a future- poor Mickey! to a caring, courageous, universe jumping time traveller who was inspired to defeat monsters and save the world!
Clearly, this places Rose high up on the board here as the first companion introduced into a new era of Doctor Who who definitely left a remarkable legacy to uphold; You don't give up, you say no, you have the courage to do what's right.

Next, I move onto Martha Jones; the feisty, intelligent and generous medical doctor who landed on the Moon. Her growth and personality changed over the course of one season. At the beginning she utterly fascinated by the wonders the Doctor showed her and fell in love with him which made her more vulnerable and unaware of who exactly the Doctor was. Towards the end though, once the Master rained supreme the Doctor had put his absolute trust in her and she became a global hero. Her bravery and determination to travel the world and tell stories of the Doctor to save the world really did make her a legendary hero. This is getting tricky!

Moving on to the hilarious Donna Noble; who's witty, roughness, warmth and madness was one of the most heartbroken companions and she didn't even know it as a cost of saving the universe from the Daleks and becoming half Time Lord, this new and improved Donna ultimately had to die to save her real self and forget about all the adventures and wonders she had seen.
In the end, her bravery and strength to save billions of lives was the key to her becoming a very memorable companion indeed.

Then there is Amy Pond who's fliratious, bonkers and very Scottish behaviour deemed her as a unique member of the Doctor Who family. Throughout her time in the TARDIS she didn't save the world all on her own but contributed to the many defeats and held the right frame of mind for justice. 
However, she was the saviour of the Star Whale and took the iniatitive to admit to the Doctor that he was wrong which is a very noble and brave thing to do which showed a real committment to saving planets, races and even the Doctor from himself.

Delving into the earlier years of Doctor Who, I have to include Jo Grant in this list; the funny, caring, witty, crazy and brave character who always no matter what stuck by the Doctor and only decided to leave his side to get married. But the reason why I believe she should have a rightful place in this list is because she was the only companion who sacrificed her life for the Doctor's on almost every adventure they went on which to me proves her devotion to him and the peace and harmony of the Earth and universe.

Lastly, this spot has to be awarded to the delighful Sarah Jane Smith who was a noisy, playful, clever, imaginative and strong minded woman who always stood up to the bad guys even after her travels with the Doctor. Her love for the Earth and the many races out there shown through and her acceptance of them helped people watching her to learn something about the world and themselves.

Now for the big reveal, (drum roll)- the winner is........... Everyone! Every single companion on this list and the ones I haven't mentioned are the greatest companion ever all in their own unique qualities because they all travelled with the Doctor and they all saved the world many times! 

Got you there didn't I!
