1/? The Doctor’s Companions: Ian and Barbara Chesterton


Companion #2 and 3

Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright

Last Episode - The Chase (The Planet of Decision)

Last Words Spoken:

Barbara  ”Hey, how are we going to explain our absence?”  (talking to Ian of how they are going to explain to Coal School why they were away for 2 years)

Ian “Uh, no but you’re getting warm” (responding to the bus driver about about living on the moon”) 

I love the clips of them running in London happy to be home!


”[…] But always her eyes turned to Ian and their hands were ready to reach out and touch […]”

"Hear this now: I will always come for you.

But how can you be sure?

This is true love - you think this happens every day?”

I got up and walked over to Barbara and took her hand lightly. I felt her fingers pressing into mine. Asking for comfort? Affection? I still didn’t dare hope it might be love. Only time could tell. I turned and faced the Doctor with a smile.

Barbara went on. ‘He hates me. I know he does. I was stupid. Trying to fight… the way I felt.’

I wonder neither of them could hear my heart pounding. Was I hearing things properly? There was another long silence and I hardly dared to breathe.

'I don't know about these things,' said Kristas slowly, 'but I know that time is never wasted, Barbara. You and he have been forced together, a bond has been created. Let time test both your feelings.' He picked up a branch and began snapping little pieces off it and throwing them away. 'Mind you, I'm speaking from my knowledge, my little knowledge,' he added with a smile, 'of you as a person. My own ways are simple and direct. There was a girl I sat next to at the feast tonight. Salthyana was her name. I will tell her tomorrow that I wish her to stay at my side for the rest of our lives, but that,' he ended seriously, 'would be too direct for you I suppose.

Barbara said ‘Yes,’ very softly and added, ‘Besides, the man asks the woman if she is willing.’

Ian discover that Barbara has feelings for him, but thinks he hates her in The Daleks novelisation. (via thechestertons)

The Keys of Marinus // The Chase

(via fabricati-diem-pvnc)

Love it that Ian and Barbara are so in sync with each other, the way they glance at each other and turn to face Susan at the exact same time, both wanting Susan to help them.

Really love this shot of Ian and Barbara looking down at the crashed ship on Planet Dido. It looks really effective and alien.
