On behalf of all those would be companions of The Doctor who just want to leave earth and not come back...

I wonder what it’d be like to have a companion on Doctor Who written from the all too common POV of a space geek or internet free spirit/sci-fi hero(ine) to be, who only dreamed of ever getting away from this miserable little mudball and all the short-sighted humans on it.
