The True Companions
have a scrappy-but-lovable
talking Non-Human Sidekick
, Robot Buddy
, Cute Monster
, or even an active imaginary friend.
Due to the Applied Phlebotinum
of the week, she is suddenly transformed into a human, and - heLLOOO NURSE!!
All of a sudden, there are thousands of less than safe for work
fan fictions and drawings about her, everywhere.
Expect even the characters in the show to view her in a different light.
Alternately, the phlebotinum
may simply show
the audience what she would look like if she were human.
If the transformation is only temporary,
it allows for a high-profile Cameo
