New companions inspired by past companions

Following the announcement of a second teacher from Coal Hill School becoming a recurring character in the new series, which characters or groups of characters from the series’ history could you reference or draw inspiration from without copying exactly?

(Thinking about this recently as a friend started running the Dragonlance adventures for D&D with the players creating new characters, with some intentional similarities and some strong differences.)

What kind of character would you create from a brief of “investigative journalist” or “U.N.I.T. soldier” or “refugee from a famous battle in British history” or “stranded astronaut” or “lost heir to the throne of a pseudo-mediaeval planet” or “robot in disguise” or “shop assistant”?
