"Frankham-Allen's style is engaging and enthusiastic, maintaining a pacey discourse throughout when it would have been easy to just provide a droning list... As the role of the companion continues to grow and develop within Doctor Who, on screen and off, there's a sense that this is just the beginning of a work that is ripe for updating in a few year's time. Let's hope that Andy Frankham-allen is already working on volume two." – Mark Wright, Doctor Who Magazine
"Companions is a very thorough volume and consequently suited to the more dedicated fan. We found it fascinating to see all the touches that have been added to our favourite characters over the years and it really motivates us to catch up on some of the non-television adventures we have missed!" – Ian McArdell, Cultbox
"A well-written and thoroughly detailed book by a writer that clearly knows their stuff when it comes to Doctor Who... an effective and important guide to many of the people who have helped the Doctor save the universe so many times." – Meredith Burdett, Kasterborous Online
"Companions: Fifty Years of Doctor Who Assistants is a thorough and fun read for the die-hard Doctor Who fan; if you've spent ages debating exactly how many grandchildren Jo Grant has or what exactly happened to poor Peri, then this will thoroughly entertain you." – Starburst Magazine Online
