    Ace should return to the series like Sarah Jane did!

      @Yeti season 6 only has a couple of episodes missing so it could be animated and released fairly soon

      With all the missing episodes, I think it'll be a couple years before we see a 60s season
      And we have the animations coming out in the meantime

    How great would it be if in series 12 the TARDIS Team walk by a building with the sign saying A Charitable Earth, then later on that series or the next Ace actually meets the gang.

    Ace was Billie Piper’s template for Rose Tyler. Both are some of the greatest companions ever.

    I didn’t like Ace probably because it was the 7th doctors companion

    Here's how I like to imagine the scene playing out.
    Ace here is walking down the street, when all of a sudden the Doctor comes tearing around the corner just up ahead. The Doctor sees her, doesn't blink, doesn't stop, doesn't even slow down; just grabs her arm as she runs past and tries to pull her along, calling "Come on Ace, there's work to do!"

    Would be amazing to see Ace actually return to Doctor Who. Along with some decent writing... Nothing could fix Jodie Whitaker's Doctor quite like a believable interaction with a former companion...

      @Yeti because he can't act, his "character" is annoying, boring and badly written and I hate him and you and your mum....

      Bradley Walsh was the best thing about series 11, why would you get rid of him of all people?

    This trailer shows the real potential of Ace returning to the show. I made a video a while back on if Ace should return if anyone wants to check it out

  • nikonbear

    2:10 minutes with Ace was better than the whole of Series 11.

  • a man of many parts

    Unfortunately this is The Doctor (and his companion) that I know so little about. I didn't have a VCR and I was working all the time. I know Ace made her own explosives and was afraid of clowns, and that's about it.

    Dude. What if we got a return from more classic Who companions for guest appearances? I'd love to see that.

  • dancingmonkey08
    dancingmonkey08 Month ago +1

    can we please get all the classic characters doing this, Carole Ann Ford (Susan) for an eventual Season 1 boxset, William (Ian) for Season 2, Peter Purves (Steven) or Maureen O'Brien (Vicki) for Season 3, Anneke (Polly) for Season 4 (Polly), Frazer for Season 5 (Jamie), Wendy (Zoe) for Season 6, John Levene (Benton) for Season 7, Katy Manning (Jo Grant) for Season 8, Richard (Mike Yates) for Season 9 & 11, Louise (Leela) for Season 14 and 15, Tom Baker (as the Curator version of the Doctor for Season 16), Lalla (Romana) for Season 17, Janet (Tegan) for Season 20, Mark (Turlough) for Season 21, Nicola (Peri) for Season 22, Bonnie (Mel) for Season 24 and the next part of this video for Season 25 with Sophie coming back

    Please please please, its so clever, and could give a little mini-epilogue to what happened to a bunch of the classic series characters

      The other two are top notch

    Yay, Ace!
    She could come back, but not sure what audience they would be appealing too..
    Most golden age fans stopped watching during Simon Baker, before Ace came along, and most reboot fans wouldn't know who she is!! : \
    But hey, they can but try!

    Next to Leela, Ace was my fave companion. SJS was awesome, but never wielded a dagger OR a bazooka.

    I got excited thinking Ace would be in the new season, then realized it was a collection release and got sad. There is hope though, since they gave Ace a backstory for the last 30 years.

    Funny how many people thought Ace was coming back. The last thing the show runners today want is a strong female character on the show.

    Playing the nostalgia card. Clever, but this will not be enough to bring casual fans back. You need to get rid of the not-doctor.

      How DARE people age? Especially women: they should always look hot and 20 years old.

      You'd love the world of Logan's Run, then. Nobody lives past 21. Bad part is that it's all falling apart.

    This trailer was better than the last season of Dr Who. BRING ACE BACK! This looks too good just to be an ad!

    I never watched Dr Who before, I was told be a friend that the new series reboot was great and I got sucked in with Eccleston and the Tennant and Smith. I never watched the seventh doctor.,,.Before my time, but just the commercial alone of the return of a former companion was more interesting than the last season of Dr Who. I will need to pick up the set....looks a lot more interesting than what they are releasing now.

    Doctor Who is deader than Disney Soy Wars at this point.
    It takes a special kind of incompetent buffoon to destroy a highly lucrative 50+ year old franchise, or 40+ in the case of Star Wars.
    The two most popular and cherished sci-fi franchises in TV and movies respectively, destroyed by incompetence, arrogance, political ideology and buffoonery.

    Ace is such an underrated companion. She literally beat up a dalek with a baseball bat and took out the cybermen with a catapult. Not to mention how handy she was with her nitro-9. Legend!

    This was the first Doctor Who I enjoyed as a teen in 1988. Ace was just cool and the 7th Doctor was fun and brilliant. Love 9 and 10 but 7 and Ace were my faves. Ace was a strong companion equal to the Doctor. Rose was great but too clingy and jealous. Martha was strong in her right but underappreciated. Donna stood her own(although she annoyed me at times).Captain Jack, Love him!!

    Ace wielding a baseball bat taking out Daleks was wicked cool! She is also a precursor to Lisbeth Salander. The Curse of Fenric is essential WHO.
