* TheEveryman: Bill is the first companion in a long time to just be ''normal''. Unlike several past companions, with Donna being "The Most Important Woman In Creation" or Amy being "The Girl who Waited" or Clara being "The Impossible Girl", Bill is just an everyday girl with nothing unusual about her.

** Forms most of the tension with Sarah Jane when they first meet, and she ''really'' doesn't seem to like the idea that the Doctor has had female friends other than her in the past (or may have in future). In Rose's defense, the one time the Ninth Doctor mentioned having previous companions ("The Doctor Dances") she wasn't really listening at the time (she had 'dancing' on the mind), and when they encounter Sarah Jane he's more interested in catching up with Sarah Jane, while her main concern was being left behind. By the end of "School Reunion" the tension between Sarah Jane and Rose has disappeared and the two are delighted to see each other again in "Journey's End".

* RoboticReveal: The opening scene of "The Pilot" strongly implies that Nardole's replacement body is robotic, as it ''squeaks'' when he moves and a bolt drops out of his sleeve when he's not carrying anything.

* HumanAlien: Though it's not mentioned on screen pre-Series 10, according to Matt Lucas in ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'' #507, Nardole's not human, and is possessed of strange abilities and knowledge - making him the TV series' first non-human companion since the Fifth Doctor's era.

* MoralityChain: This Doctor knows all too well by the time of "The Return of Doctor Mysterio" that he needs companions to serve as this and keep him from getting lonesome, so after he says his final goodbye to River he "reassembles" Nardole and takes him on. In Series 10 it is Nardole who serves as the main anchor keeping the Doctor guarding the Vault.

* MoralityChain: This Doctor knows all too well by the time of "The Return of Doctor Mysterio" that he needs companions to serve as this and keep him from getting lonesome, so after he says his final goodbye to River he "reassembles" Nardole and takes Song assigned him on. In Series 10 it is Nardole who serves as the main anchor keeping to be this to the Doctor guarding before her death, knowing that he shouldn't be alone. At Missy's execution, he warned the Doctor not to go through with killing her, and subsequently has been doing his best to hold the bored, lonesome Doctor to his vow to watch over her and the Vault.


Added DiffLines:

* ApocalypseMaiden: Becomes this thanks to her consenting to let the Monks conquer the planet; though they don't realize it, she is the psychic conduit their MassHypnosis of humanity works through. Missy advises the Doctor to kill her or render her braindead to stop the Monks, and over his objections Bill is ready to make a HeroicSacrifice to do so. However, she survives ''and'' breaks off their link, whereupon they flee.


Added DiffLines:

* CharacterDevelopment: By the time of "The Pyramid at the End of the World", she has learned enough from the Doctor to make the kind of choice he would when she's faced with the prospect of his death: She agrees to let the Monks TakeOverTheWorld if they'll restore his lost eyesight so he can escape the lab that's about to explode, taking the line of thinking that she'll not only save him but he will be able to liberate her and her people. While she must suffer through six lonely months and a grueling SecretTestOfCharacter in "The Lie of the Land" before she and the Doctor are reunited and he can put his plan to defeat the Monks into action, she endures and ultimately is willing to make a HeroicSacrifice to save Earth. Luckily, she survives the process.


Added DiffLines:

* ImaginaryFriend: Her MissingMom becomes this once she has pictures of her. In "The Lie of the Land", she talks to her as a friend because she has no one else to turn to at the time; she knows the truth about the Monks but no one else around her does and she will be arrested for speaking up. Ultimately, her created memories of her mother -- a pure fiction -- are what defeat the Monks in a BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind, as they cannot rewrite fiction, only the truth.
