DOCTOR WHO HEROES STEVEN PETER PURVES

STEVEN TAYLOR HAD TO FILL BIG SHOES. IAN AND BARBARA, WELL LOVED BY THE WORLD WERE LEAVING DOCTOR WHO AND STEVEN WAS TO BE THE NEW LEADING MAN, THE DOCTOR’S PERSONAL BODYGUARD. FIRST SEEN IN THE DALEK TALE THE CHASE, HE FIRST PLAYED A LOUD AMERICAN IN THE STORY AT THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING BEFORE BEING FOUND A PRISONER OF THE MECHANOIDS, THEN TOUTED TO REPLACE THE DALEKS. THE DOCTOR WASN’T EVEN AWARE STEVEN WAS ABOARD THE TARDIS UNTIL HE FOUND THE INJURED PILOT. STEVEN QUICKLY BECAME A FIRM FAVOURITE, LOYAL TO THE DOCTOR BUT NOT AFRAID TO CHALLENGE THE TIME LORD ESPECIALLY IN THE MASSACRE. STEVEN WAS VERY PROTECTIVE OF HIS FELLOW COMPANIONS, BEING VERY UPSET AT VICKI LEAVING AND THE SUBSEQUENT DEATHS OF KATARINA AND SARA KINGDOM. HE BATTLED THE TOYMAKER WITH DODO , MET THE MEDDLING MONK, THE DALEKS IN THE LONGEST DOCTOR WHO STORY EVER BEFORE FINALLY STAYING BEHIND IN THE SAVAGES TO BECOME LEADER OF THE NEWLY FORMED SOCIETY. STEVEN HAS RETURNED IN BIG FINISH AUDIO ONCE MORE IN THE COMPANION CHRONICLES FURTHER EXPANDING THE CHARACTER. PETER WENT ON TO BECOME FAMOUS WITH BLUE PETER AND STILL PRESENTS TODAY, RECENTLY HAVING DONE AN ADVERT WITH PETER KAY. HE HAS ALSO BEEN FEATURED IN THE MISSING ADVENTURES SERIES OF NOVELS WHICH BROUGHT OUT THE BEST OF HIS CHARACTER. GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN.
