'The marquis. Well, you know, to be honest, he seems a little bit dodgy to me.'
'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."
I think it also provides a little more 'mixing and matching' among interpersonal relationships. And things don't have to then be quite so binary with the two choices with Doctor-Companion relationships always seeming to be either "friendship" or "in love with the Doctor".
I'd dearly LOVE to see them do a series with a parent-child companion pair on Team TARDIS -- like a father and son, or mother and daughter (hey, you could get TWO 'something for the dads' for the price of one), or a father and daughter or a mother and son... It could really bring an interesting dynamic.

I believe the pyramid is from the final episode.
I wonder how many travellers The Doctor has inspired or created during his life?
For example, recently we saw those Pirates gain a spaceship and fly off.
Before that, Jenny blasted off to explore the Universe.
Even in the classic series, Ghostlight showed us a rag-tag band who flew off into the unknown in a spaceship.
On a sidenote, I'm rewatching Ghostlight right now. Excellent sets and theme work, works to set up tension very nicely at the start. A great 7th Doctor story which allows his 'manipulative bastard' side to come out in a non-violent way. Almost surreal in places, it keeps you wondering.

Mary Jane and her attic crew
the jewel theif with the flying bus
the waitress floating through space
the Silurion and her lady friend
the Sontaran nurse
there was a comic strip the Dr Who threads linked to a while back featuring the 1st 10 Doctors that had a guy in a teleporting car and a guy and gal in a spaceship, and Leela living on Galifrey

Pull List; seems to be too long to fit in my sig...
Captain Jack was already travelling through space and time the Doctor just got him to clean up his act.
Siriel; You have spectacularly failed to understand my post.
Also, Sarah Jane and her crew don't really fit the bill since they stay on Earth and don't really explore the universe.
Neither does the Sontaran nurse since he was already a Sontaran warrior and so he traveled with others of his kind. Also, he implied that the whole "nurse" thing had been *forced* on him by the Doctor rather than something he took on because he was inspired by the Doctor.
Also, the Silurian Lady and Jenny don't really count because, again, they are Earthbound and therefore not explorers.
My only qualm so far with the current story that started with River's death(?) is that everything would be making a lot more sense for the fans who have trouble keeping track with all the time travel aspects of this story if it had a longer season, say 16-18 uninterupted episodes instead of 6 here, one there, wait half a year, etc.
I am really respecting Moffat's use of time travel and how many events are interlapping over each other back and forth and how one thing can't happen w/out the other, even when a result of actions may happen BEFORE all the events that led up to it (the Doctor getting shot & killed). Truly brilliant!
And I still believe that Madame Kovarian IS the "weapon" that Melody/River is turned into, until another regeneration makes Kovarian into the River Song we all know and love. There's a wacky paradox right there, the evil Kovarian/River kidnaps HERSELF as an infant in the form of Melody/River and what we perceive as the present more or less River keeps a wide berth of these events because she doesn't want her younger self in the form of the older bodied Kovarian to know that she will one day switch sides after a regeneration that results in the current River's body!
Moffat does for time travel what no one else has really done before!
