    Well to be frank, I hated the character. He was just so ... well wet ... and boring. He always look bored and sullen. To be Frank I think that Mr Waterhouse was just a pretty poor actor. Period.

    Reviewing some of the classic episodes that have been released recently I have spotted quite a bit of awful acting. e.g., there are some pretty awful bits with Lalla Ward in Destiny of the Daleks - particularly where she is captured and interogated by the aforementioned metal meanies (Suzanne Danielle was also pretty wooden - at least she was a robot!)

    he was alright. i thought he was nothing special. kind of character you'd expect to get killed off.

    anybody else think he looked like tattoo from fantasy island?

    Well.... I like Adric, I really really do.

    I just think his character was damaged due to poor scripting, too many companions, and inexperience on Matthew's part regarding the acting front. He was only quite young after all.

    Take all that away and I really like Adric, really really really like Adric. He's adorable, and I'm not afraid to admit that, in fact in my list of my top 10 favorite companions he comes in 5th place.

    I love him with the Fourth Doctor at the beginning of Keeper of Traken and him and Fivey are great together too. ^_^

    bye bye david :(

    I thought he was okay too, nothing special.

    Although, if you are going to employ a floor runner then that's what your going to get.

    Please check out my blog, as I attempt to watch and review EVERY Doctor Who episode!
