I don’t understand why people dislike Adric. I really don’t.
I mean, is it an issue of disliking him on his own merits (????) or disliking teenage boys in general? Because that’s really the only thing I could see why anyone could dislike him is that he is a teenage boy and… acts like a typical… teenage boy……..
Is it an issue of him being a know-it-all? Because so is Zoe, and Romana, and Nyssa.
Is it because he doesn’t listen to what the Doctor tells him to do a great deal of the time? Neither does….. any other companion……………..
