Rosita Farisi
Also known as:
Race: Human
Home Planet: Earth
Home Era: 19th century
Appearances: DW: The Next Doctor
Actor: Velile Tshabalala

Rosita Farisi was the companion of Jackson Lake.


Rosita was saved by Jackson Lake, who believed himself to be The Doctor, from a Cyberman. They started to hear about people going missing and decided to investigate. She first encountered the real Doctor when a Cybershade was caught in a building. She saved them both from almost dying. She later told the doctor about everything that was going on. The Doctor explained to her and the "Doctor" what had happened. She later went with the Doctor and even punched Miss Hartigan in the face when she found out what she was going to do. She saved the orphan children who lived at the work house and were being forced to work the mechanics of the CyberKing. After the Doctor went away she went to live with Jackson Lake and his son. (DW: The Next Doctor)


Rosita is very brassy and liked to keep everyone in line, which is why she stayed with Jackson Lake. She is very caring and likes to look after people, and if she is in danger she calls for help. (DW: The Next Doctor)

Behind the Scenes

  • She is not a companion of the Doctor, but rather a companion of Jackson Lake, who believed himself to be the Doctor.
  • According to a digital spy interview with Velile Tshabala, Rosita was a prostitute before meeting Jackson Lake. This is hinted at in the episode when Rosita and the Doctor confront Miss Hartigan and she replies to her by saying, 'You can be quiet; I doubt he paid you to talk'.
  • Rosita's name was decided on because it contains elements of the names Rose and Martha. It is also Spanish for "little rose".
  • Her second name is never revealed in the episode but is given as Farisi in the reference book Doctor Who: Companions and Allies. It should be noted, however, that some information in this book is disputed (such as the title of the Children in Need Special).
