Best companion in recent years has been Donna Noble (Catherine Tate). Having a companion who did not fancy the Doctor in anyway was a nice change. They acted more like siblings, which was a nice change.
Have quite a few favourite episodes, but "Midnight" with David Tennant was a lot of fun and creepy.
I've watched the recent seasons a few times now, and I think that the best season was David Tennant's w/ Martha Jones (although she was a bad companion) and Matt Smith's first season.
Although I like Matt Smith's take on the Doctor more than Tennant's, the seasons have been getting progressively worse for Smith. The first season was really great. Last year's season was all over the place, had maybe two or three good episodes, "The Doctor's Wife" by far the most interesting (written by Neil Gaiman).
This season has been really quite forgettable. I have all of them PVR'd and I don't remember what happened in the season opener. I'm attributing the quality the last two seasons not because of the writing or because of Smith, but due to his companions. There is a reason why the Doctor always has new companions every season, and that's to keep the Doctor always on his toes.
Amy and Rory were interesting the first season, but have since not added anything of worth.
Kinda hot in these rhinos.
