Can The Doctor's Companions Save The Day?

According to The Sun, in Doctor Who Series 4 there will an episode where The Doctor is lost in space, this leaving it up to his faithful companions Rose, Martha and Donna to save the day. How will they react with each other, will they be friends or foes? Either way if this story is true they are all going to have to work together as a team to save The Doctor and the world from an alien invasion. This episode is thought to be the Doctor-lite episode of the series, like Blink and Love and Monsters where The Doctor doesn't appear in the episode much. Here is what The Sun have to say;

BBC bosses are so confident in Doctor Who that they are making an episode without him in it. Instead, the Time Lord’s three female assistants – Rose, Martha and Donna – take the starring roles. The shock twist comes after the Doctor, played by David Tennant, gets lost in space. His faithful sidekicks – played by Billie Piper, Freema Agyeman and Catherine Tate – are left to take control of the Tardis as they battle to save the world from an alien invasion. An insider on the show’s top-secret Cardiff set said: “The chemistry between the three assistants is electric. It is so strong that we realised the doctor could be in danger of getting in the way. “So it is left to the girls to sort things out, having to save civilisation and the Doctor himself.” Former assistants Billie, 25, and Freema, 28, will team up with the Doctor’s new companion Catherine, 39, for the one-off episode towards the end of the next series. It will be screened in March. The insider added: “It is a bit of a gamble having Doctor Who without the Doctor – it has never been done before. But everyone is so interested in the different assistants that it should be fantastic. “Donna, Martha and Rose are all competing for his attention in different ways and all want to be the best. But the question will be, can they work together?” The Beeb are hoping for huge viewing figures for series four after the Christmas Special featuring Kylie Minogue pulled in 12.2million viewers.

This may be why David Tennant said to Newsround recently that even though Billie Piper has been on set, he hasn't filmed any scenes with her yet. He then went on to say that we will understand why when we have watched the series. A clip from Series 4 has also appeared on youtube showing how Rose returns. In the clip Donna is walking down a street on her own, without The Doctor, so maybe this is how Rose and Donna meet in the episode. You can watch the youtube video here, but beware of major spoilers.
Please note that this story hasn't been confirmed and at this moment in time is a rumour. I think it would be a great plotline for an episode and that it would expand Rose's, Martha's and Donna's characters even more. Would you like this story to be true?

    It seems inevitable that Martha and Donna would meet Rose, since they have been in her shadow. What I hope is true is that Rose is around for more than one episode. The rumour that she helps the Doctor battle Davros sounds like it would be amazing.

    This seems good. I'd love it if this happened.
