Inner dustjacket flaps read as follows:

From the authors of the best-selling Doctor Who books The Sixties, The Seventies and Timeframe comes Companions, the complete guide to everyone who has been dragged along on the Doctor's adventures in time and space. All the Time Lord's travelling companions are here: three decades of miniskirts and platform boots, kilts and crinolines, leather bikinis and silver jump-suits. Companions includes interviews with the stars, the facts behind the headlines, and hundreds of photos — including glamourous shots of the actresses who played the damsels in distress and warrior women in the changing TARDIS crew.

David J Howe and Mark Stammers have spent many years researching and writing about Doctor Who for magazines, both professional and amateur, as well as contributing to books about the series and other cult television programmes.
