Couldn't they have put Ada in the cell?

No, Ada had been experimented on, not placed the poison.

I must admit when The Doctor looked at her eyes I was expecting to say he knew how to fix it

Damnit Jim, he's a doctor not a. miracle worker.

It would have felt a little hollow and schmaltzy tbh. One of the main things that always jarred with me in the 'Flesh 2 Parter' was after all the dramatic character buildup surrounding Cleaves's brain tumour, the Doctor just magically pulls out a cure from the TARDIS and gives it to her, negating any develoment thus far and begging the question, why doesn't he help EVERYONE he meets.

Besides, Ada seemed less concerned about her condition than how it had come about, she wasn't ashamed of it.

He might not be able to save everyone but he can still try. Think back to Abigail in ACC if he had spent more time with her he might have been able to cure her. Then there was Amys infertility how did she know he couldn't have fixed it if she never told him ?. Shame he couldn't have restored Adas sight but maybe the damage was too severe. She had been experimented on for a long time after all.

I really wanted Ada to be a companion. She was a great character, and lethal with a cane!

The actress might not have wanted to play the part long-term. Diana Rigg said the lenses she'd to wear were very painful.

Considering in the previous episode he was with a human who had artificial eyes you'd have thought she could have done her a favour

She was an accomplice to murder, though. She was happy enough to be around the mass conversions and killing and help her mother with her plan of wiping out all but the chosen few.

She only got angry when it turned out that she wasn't one of the chosen few!

Do we really want people like that as companions? The Doctor probably felt she deserved to keep her injuries.
