Biography Edit

Sharon grew up in the northern English city of Blackcastle, a steel mill town. Her best friend on Earth was schoolmate nicknamed Fudge Higgins. After hearing reports of alleged U.F.O. sightings, Fudge forced Sharon to search for the shuttle with him. In a shed, the two discovered Beep the Meep. The small alien appeared to be peaceful, and they were convinced that it needed help. They took care of it at Fudge's house, unaware that it was being hunted for extreme war crimes.

Under the mental influence of his black light radiation, she tried to kill the Doctor. After being cured and seeing the true nature of Beep, she helped him defeat the creature afterwards, the Doctor tried to take Sharon home (COMIC: Doctor Who and the Star Beast) but the TARDIS accidentally landed aboard the Space Hog, an astrofighter in the New Earth System, instead of Sharon's hometown. The ship hich was attacked by the Werelox and their masters, the Daleks. After helping defeat the Daleks, Sharon decided to keep traveling with the Doctor. (COMIC: Doctor Who and the Dogs of Doom)

Sharon experienced a retinal implant viddy machine education (on Galactic Crime-Fighting rather than advanced high school physics as the Doctor had intended) while onboard the Doctor's TARDIS. A new, more mature hair style was nothing compared to suddenly ageing four years when the TARDIS' chrono-compensator made everyone aboard older while passing through a time rift to escape the evil Brimo. While this did not affect the Doctor significantly, Sharon was suddenly in her early twenties. Not having been fond of being an adolescent, however, she was pleased with the results. (COMIC: Doctor Who and the Time Witch)

Her adventures continued in China, 1522 AD, where stranded Sontarans were using Shaolin Monks to fight and retrieve crystals needed to send a distress signal. (COMIC: Dragon's Claw)

As the Doctor returned Sharon home, the Doctor, K9, Sharon and the TARDIS were caught by a teleport beam operated by Varan Tak. Their ship was collecting samples of lifeforms throughout the universe. (COMIC: The Collector)

Her next journey saw her revisiting old friends of the Doctor on Unicepter IV, where she struck up a relationship with Vernon Allen, a professional dreamer who used a Slinth called Miki. When the Slinth were drained and no longer used for dreaming, Sharon decided to start a new life with Vernor, feeling it impossible to return to Blackcastle since she had grown up. (COMIC: Dreamers of Death)

Legacy Edit

Long after Sharon left the Doctor, a facsimile of her was included in a recreation by the TARDIS of the Eighth Doctor's friends and allies from its own memories. (COMIC: A Life of Matter and Death)

Behind the scenes Edit

  • Created for the Doctor Who Weekly comic strip, Sharon has the distinction of being the first recurring person of colour as a companion of the Doctor to appear in any medium, predating Mickey Smith by 26 years. She is predated as a POC character only by Nick Willard from Zeron Invasion in TV Action, who only appeared in one story. She was also the first original companion to be created for the comic strip. Her creator, Pat Mills, designed her deliberately as a nontraditional comics heroine. Mills, noticing the preponderance of dumb, rich white girls as heroines, made Sharon deliberately black, poor and intelligent. Apart from K9, it would be several years before the comic strip began featuring TV companions.
  • Sharon's surname "Davies", never mentioned in Doctor Who Weekly, comes from a data file on the Doctor in the Marvel UK comic book Death's Head, starring the character of the same name.
