4. Wendy Padbury as Zoe Heriot

Zoe Heriot was the first companion on Doctor Who with an intelligence that could match the Doctor's. She was a scientist from the future, who travelled with Patrick Troughton's Second Doctor. Check out the classic story The Invasion, where she destroys a computer with a brain, cackling the whole time. It's pretty brilliant!
