ADRIC CHARACTER BIO---
Okay, never been a big Benny fan. I collected all the older novels, a few short story collections, and loved her in the audios where she appears with the 7th Doctor and Ace (there are not that many audios where the trio come together). I collected some of her audios when an old monster appeared but to be honest I always found that gimmicky and never liked her habit of drinking. I did like her sarcasm. And the fact that she might be the only companion to have bedded the Doctor (the 8th before you go and throw up).
Anyway SEASON NINE was wonderful and giving Benny a son, played by a marvelous child voice actor, was a stroke of genius. It gives her such a new POV. I don't even mind her drinking now as she does it away from the boy. And her quips and attitude are just a hoot. GET SEASON NINE now, it's great.
I am not sure which ep of this fan made series this was but I"m always amazed by these fan made series. They look better than I expect and they are really quite entertaining. The best one I've ever seen, detailing Kirk's nephew marrying another man, was, aside from that great development, just like watching a really good ep of the origina Trek, down to the music, effects, sets, and sound effects as well as the acting. It's amazing and if I can track that down again and watch it again and recall it's name I'll review that but there's not much more to say than I loved it! I wish they'd finish it. I understand that time is a problem as fans make it in their spare time, film it and then others have to CSI it. It is worth the wait if it ever gets finished.
last night the sci fi group I belong to viewed these two episodes. Let me start by saying I enjoyed both of them a great deal. I also have to say that I hated Babylon 5 in its original run. I just thought it was boring, too political, and tedious with characters that I could not relate to. I may have been wrong judging by these two episodes. There was always one I missed that I wanted to see in which an alien couple refuses to allow their son to be treated by the doctor due to religious reasons.
