Kylie Minogue as Astrid Peth

Even if you are not a fan of her musical endeavors, it’s hard not to love Kylie Minogue as Astrid Peth. She was “officially” the Doctor’s companion for a single episode, but died before she had a chance to get on the TARDIS and go out into space and time. “Voyage of the Damned” was definitely one of the better episodes that year on Doctor Who, and it’s nice that Astrid was a good enough character that we were genuinely bummed out when she died, despite only knowing her for an hour!
