The Companion Departures - #30 - Dodo Chaplet

Dodo’s departure so ineffective that it occurs when being referenced in dialogue spoken by other characters, at which point we realize that she actually left two episodes ago.

And yet it still is not as bad as Mel’s departure (which shows you how bad I think Mel’s is). At the very least, we can understand why she decides to leave the TARDIS (because she has the chance to stay in her own time) which puts it above Mel’s departure at the very least. And in this case, it is the very least.
