It's also a lie, according to Eleven.

It is? When was that? (But it's such a pretty turn of phrase!)

She was Peter Davison's favourite out of all his companions, and you can clearly see why. It has always frustrated him that Nyssa was so often set aside to give Adric and Tegan more protagonism, because she was the one more in tune with Five's temperament and way of working.

Peter had very lovely taste in companions, I must say. :D I can definitely see the potential for Nyssa to have become an equal to Five - she knew a lot about the TARDIS (& I think she even attempts to repair the chameleon circuit in a Short Trips story) & was so scientifically minded, as Romana was. With that said, I don't understand why Tegan always ends up being the most popular of the two (lalala, watch me pretend Adric doesn't exist, lalala), considering how damn annoying she could be. (I've seen people say she's rather Donna-esque, which I really don't agree with - Donna may have been outspoken, but she wasn't a bloody whiny nag like Tegan can be!)

Hopefully, future events in this watch-a-thon will please you on this regard... *is mysterious*

You tease! :P

I still see him as Little Lord Fauntleroy. :P

Teehee! I still say he's a schoolboy, myself! (I SHOULD read some Wodehouse, shoudn't I?)

Peri seems to become the object of affection of deformed pervs quite a lot, I'm afraid.


I don't know if you've noticed, but when Five is at the controls of the gun runners' ship (incidentally, badass. SO badass.), you can notice the regeneration effects appearing at some point, but Five quickly forces his body to withhold the regeneration so that he can carry on with the task at hand.

Oooo, I did! That's the scene I was talking about when I was all 'Five you ARE a badass'! & now that you mention it, I DO remember the effect in question, but I didn't actually associate it with him trying to stave off his regeneration. He really IS a BAMF in this story, I must say. & I barely even like him. :D

In the documentary about regenerations (I don't remember the DVD where it is, but I'm guessing it's something like The War Games) Peter complains that he was acting his socks off in that scene, but the only thing people (himself included) notice when they see it is BOOBS.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA! XD XD Poor Peter! But Peri's boobies are so pretty! Pretty & well . . . THERE! :P
