The Rescue - Doctor: My dear, why don’t you come with us, hmm? Vicki: In that old box? Doctor: We can travel anywhere and everywhere in that old box as you call it. Regardless of space and time. Vicki: Then it is a time machine? Doctor: And if you like adventure, my dear, I can promise you an abundance of it.
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.
