I can't stand a few companions, most coming from the Nathan-Turner era, and a few coming from Russel himself, and rhymes with 'shmany one of the companions from the specials who are never heard from or mentioned again'. However, Ace is the Seventh Doctor companion I liked. Despite how much I like Colin Baker, I can't stand either Peri or Mel, which were his only two companions in the televised run, not counting Jamie from the Two Doctors. Plus, Ace is part of the whole 'There are worlds out there where the stars are burning...' speech, which is a plus.
