The Companion brings you exclusive deep-dives, long reads and untold stories from creators, experts and journalists. Part magazine, part 'making of' companion, part DVD extras. We also include podcasts and documentaries, all packaged in a premium app experience.

The Companion offers members the chance to go further into their favourite TV shows and films. No click-bait. No ads. Instead, you can dive into long-reads, podcasts and video documentaries created by a team that shares your passion for these landmark game-changers and cult classics.

Highly recommend

Let me start by saying I’m not someone who usually writes reviews, but I’m really impressed by The Companion. I am clearly one of the first members and it already feels like a very inclusive and high quality environment. Looking forward to more content but from the kickstarter updates and newsletters it feels like its perfect for a sci-fi fan like me!

Sci-fi content without the B.S.

I’ve been a sci-fi fan my whole life and it’s so good to finally find a source of content that isn’t just click-bait headlines and surface-level ‘news’. This is real, in-depth coverage for real fans, presented in a slick, clean, easy to use interface. Two big nerdy thumbs up.

Amazing user interface, slick and the content I’ve been waiting for! Seems like I’ve been waiting a lifetime for an app like this. Great job.
