    Default Rate My Supporting Character (S1)

    For a series that could go anywhere in time and space, Doctor Who Series One did an amazing job of bringing back a wealth of supporting characters, from Rose's family to a planet-hoping, Torchwood-forming, space-slut. All of them were wonderful, but which were the best? Who won you over straight away and who took a bit longer? Are there any of them you still don't like?

    Let's have a look at their BBC Biogs:

    Jackie Tyler:
    "Always ready with a conga and a shepherd's pie". I'd have loved her even more if that were true.

    Mickey (de Mick, Mickey) Smith:
    "Computer expert, conspiracy expert and lovesick." The last one was some-way true.

    Peter Tyler:
    "Nothing." Pete is cruelly overlooked!

    Captain Jack Harkness:
    "Dashing intergalactic rogue." Missed out omnisexual.

    Adam Mitchell:
    "Nothing." He lasted two whole episodes! Though he was slightly over-shadowed by the Dalek in Dalek.

    I think that's all the main ones, but tell us about any others you especially liked.
    Pity. I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank. EXTERMINATE!

    "ooh! It's aged you"

    Jackie is the best and most iconic of this little lot. I loved her from the start and still think she's one of the best of RTD's characters.

    I liked Jackie too, but I think Jack was the best.

    Does Pete really qualify as being a supporting character, what with only being in one episode?

    Captain Jack was damn brilliant and really set Season 1 alight. It's a shame though that in his repeat usage he's lost that initial sparkle, but I loved his character, he played well off Ecclestones slightly dour-at-times Doctor.

    Somehow Jack-Tennant never really had the chemistry. It's ironic when you consider how it sounds like Ecclestone and Barrowman never got on.

    I voted for Ricky, err...Mickey Smith. Wasn't served very well by Boak in Rose, but very quickly improved after that. He's brilliant in Boom Town.
