Classic and EU Who Appreciation Week Day 3:

A Favourite Classic Series Companion >> Doctor Harry Sullivan RN

The very well-spoken, terribly earnest, ever well-meaning and always good-natured Surgeon-Lieutenant Harry Sullivan has always been a favourite of mine. He’s an officer and a gentleman. He’s a healer by vocation, gentle and kind, but when called upon is also a man of action. He can be a bit of a dork, with a droll sense of humour and a taste for really bad puns. He’s old-fashioned and stuffy and a bit bumbling by nature, often two steps behind everyone else, but is quick to learn and always eager to help. He’s more capable than he probably realises, accomplishing every task he is set, no matter how far outside his own particular field of expertise. He’s a loyal friend and a stalwart right-hand man. He’s a lot more, in fact, than most people give him credit for.

With honourable mentions to Barbara Wright and Ian Chesterton and Liz Shaw and Steven Taylor and Leela and Jamie McCrimmon and Zoe Heriot and Vicki Pallister and Sarah Jane Smith and…oh, too many to name, or I’d just end up naming them all!

“One day, I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine.”
