Brother Flaming Sword of Moderation

I wrote this in reply to a bit of fanfic last year, but after watching "School Reunions" last night, I think it applies still:

Many times it's been said the show Doctor Who needs the companions, so that the Doctor may explain to them (and by extension the audience) what is going on.

Rarely has it been discussed how the Doctor himself, needs his companions to keep him sane, keep him grounded and remind him that it is all worth while.

I teared up several times while watching this episode as I realized that the companions know this too. It's not their job, it's their fate, and despite the hardships and pain involved, their joy as well.
