Day 15 - Doctor Who Challenge

My Favourite/Least Favourite Recurring Character

My Favourite Recurring Character

I suppose Wifred Mott would garner a lot of votes here.  I've never been a fan of Bernard Cribbins but I do think this is by far the best I've seen him on screen.  he's far from a favourite of mine though.  Wilfred is the best of the New Who companion's family members by far.  I am not a fan of the 'family' characters so none of those make the cut.

I loved the Meddling Monk character but as I am not lucky enough to have seen his appearance in Dalek's Masterplan I feel he isn't recurring enough.  I like the Rani, female villains are lacking, but she hasn't been given the right stories, yet....  I liked the disruption captain Jack brought in his early appearances but he's just a touch too Lord Flashheart.

Mike Yates and Sergeant Benton are special.  I have a fondness for them.  They may give you a clue to where I'm ultimately headed...   It's a no-brainer for me really.  The obvious favourite of mine is Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart.  A nice settling presence.  Sometimes written well, sometimes not.  My fondness makes me forgive his pompousness and his over-eager trigger finger.  I sympathis a lot for him having to deal with the Third Doctor's superior attitude.  It's nice when the Brig' appears.  He's a Doctor Who stalwart :-)

My Least Favourite Recurring Character

This is a no-contest piece.  Alpha f'ing Centauri.  Squeak off you annoying delegate.

See, now I avoided UNIT people cos I thought it was a bit too easy - however, he is a great choice. And he would have been mine too :)

Spot on with Alpha Centauri as well!
