Pretty sure Grace (and Chang Lee) are off limits per rights (Fox).
Goes without saying...which you didn't in the original post. ;)
Because Spanner didn't make the original post. I did.

And yeah, it goes without saying that Grace (and Chang Lee) are off limits per rights (Fox).

:P
We need a facepalm smilie here...I certainly do. ;)

My apologies chaps, chapettes, non-chap/ette identifying!

If they ever make a figure of me I could pair her up with Paul, that would work fine, Tiny Deborah's Tiny Paul Adventures.
Don’t be silly. You’d be paired up with the David Warner Doctor. Preorder now and get a free bin accessory with no extra charge.
that would make more sense. I'm like the oscar the grouch of David Warner's life

The "Companion for Eight" question is a tough one. They can't do anyone from the Fox movie, so that essentially leaves only comics and Big Finish.

In my opinion, EDAs > Big Finish > Comics. That means Bernice, Sam, Fitz Kreiner, etc too.

A Dying Days set would be great with post-TVM 8th and Benny. Great way to finally get a Bernice Summerfield!

Hmmm... How many EDA's was Bernice in? I've been using a repurposed Helen Cutter as a Benny stand-in for a while now. (Using for what is another question.)

Hypothetical question: If they released a Bernice Summerfield figure, would they need to use the actual face of [whoever the voice artist BF used], or could they make one up since she started in print?

In theory they could make up a book one but the most recognisable Benny is definitely Lisa Bowerman at this point so they'd be more likely to make her. Wonder if the license would technically cover the VNAs?

There is definitely a portion of fandom that would cry foul if Bowerman wasn't used, and the Venn diagram of those people and the ones that buy Big Finish related figure sets is probably a solid circle.
