Well, it would actually depend. For one trip? In a heartbeat. As his permanent companion? Have to switch to answer #2.

Travel, unfamiliar people, extradimensional weirdness that involves quick thinking under pressure, and running, all in one handy package? I am proud to be your sole "HELL NO."

Swing by Morocco to pick up Aliza, and I'm there.
Maybe not for long, but definitely a trip or two, before the plungers and eyestalks show up.

How about you?

I knew I liked you for a reason.

I, um, am a terrible person. I would probably demand that he give me enough time to call my boyfriend and my parents, and find someone to feed my cat, but... other than that? Um. I'd totally leave. Because I'm a horrible, selfish person like that, I guess.

Husband and little kids. If the kids were adults and Stu dead... then maybe.

Before I met Alex and got accepted to SCAD? In a heartbeat. No second thoughts. Now, I'd have to VERY reluctantly say "no," which given the way the Companion plots tend to happen would mean that of course I'd get dragged along anyway. :)

I had to think about my response for a minute, though. Does the lack of attachment to someone necessarily mean you'd easily give over and go running off with the Doctor? or similarly, having such attachments mean you'd say no? There might be something to that, but in my case, I'd still want to go, either way -- but I wouldn't want to leave Alex behind. (I'd want to take him with me! Miss the adventure and excitement? ARE YOU KIDDING?)

...I want an icon that says EXTERMINATE DAFFODILS. Preferably with daffodils and daleks.

My answer actually surprised me a little ... but especially in later episodes, things turn out so badly for so many of his companions that ... no. I really couldn't.

I'd say I'd be totally willing to have a one-off adventure with him here instead, but--still no. Things turn out even worse for the one-episode companions, sometimes.

My mom would take care of my cat, so there's that. And honestly - being able to see the wonders of the known and unknown universe? Maybe it's the scientist in me, but I don't know that I could live with myself if I didn't take an opportunity like that.

I suspect if I had little kids, I'd change my mind from my heck yeah...

I'd have to be able to do something stellar for the left-behinds, though.

As it is, I'd also take a one-way trip to colonize Mars and live in a lava-tube. (

I guess I have a certain kind of wanderlust? Interstellar, interdimensional wanderlust?

since i really believe nothing in life is certain from one day to the next, except that stuff changes, (unless you're completely stagnant), yes, i'd go. it would be weird and scary life threatening and awesome, but life is often most of those things (my life is not threatened on a regular basis other than when i'm eating my own cooking), but with ALIENS.

YES YES YES, absolutely. I don't feel like I'm accomplishing anything in my life here, or like I'm anything special. In fact, things are actively bad for me right now. I would take that escape in a heartbeat. Traveling with the Doctor would be risky, but it would be worth it to challenge myself and improve myself and save the world. And to see the world. I want to travel more than anything, but I'll probably never have the opportunity to see all the places I want to see. I want to see the Earth, and I want to see other worlds. I'm fascinated by history, by the future, and I dearly want to see them. I often daydream about the Doctor kidnapping me...I'm sad he's not real.

Don't know that I'd want to do it forever, but oh, HELL YES. I've got nothing tying me down right now, and moreover I've been actively unhappy with my situation the past few months. Interstellar travel? Saving the universe and/or blowing lots of stuff up? Free room and board? I'm so there. Getting a chance to say goodbye to people/my cat would be nice, but if he could pull the jiggery-pokery and make my phone connect from wherever we went first so I could let everyone know not to expect me for awhile (and Twitter while traveling?), that'd do too. Don't know about Ten, because I have a seething dislike of him, but even then I'd probably just be a bit more irritable than the others.

(Hell, my mom's the one I'd likely miss the most, but she'd also be the first to smack me upside the head if I didn't go. Especially if it was for her sake.)

Because the Doctor, in his TARDIS, could take me all over the Universe and all of history and future and still bring me back in time to go back to bed for work in the morning. Of course I'd go. As it stands my life is mundane and mediocre, I don't have amazing prospects, and the idea of going along on a time-and-space adventure is so mind-bogglingly fascinating that there's no WAY I could pass up a chance to go. There is so much in the universe I want to explore, so much of history I'd want to see-- I can't imagine a circumstance where I would say no.

Where's the "I have no clue who the doctor is or where he'd be taking me" option?

Hmm! I guess it never even occured to me that someone wouldn't be familiar with the Doctor! More info here.

I love my life. I love my boyfriend. But I would regret what I hadn't seen forever if I didn't go with the Doctor. Opportunity of a lifetime. I would absolutely, positively go in a heartbeat.

Presumably he would be able to bring you back the same moment you left, so why worry about leaving your whole life behind? Of course, I'd probably get killed and eaten immediately, so maybe not.

Because that worked so well for Rose that one time. It seems to me I'd have to operate under the assumption that I wouldn't be able to time travel right back to the moment I left home and pick up like nothing happened. It just never seems to work out like that.

For the purposes of this poll: am I ME, who has seen Doctor Who and can recognize a TARDIS, or am I alt!me, who would have to trust a complete stranger?

Let's say you're familiar with the Doctor and the TARDIS but aren't intensely familiar with every detail of his most recent adventures. Yes?

Fair enough! HELL TO THE YES, then.

I never ever ever want to leave my babies.
