HEROES OF DOCTOR WHO SERGEANT BENTON JOHN LEVENE

JOHN LEVENE BEGAN HIS DOCTOR WHO ASSOCIATION IN THE PATRICK TROUGHTON ERA BUT IS FAMOUSLY KNOWN AS THE OLD RELIABLE SERGEANT BENTON WHO WAS PART OF THE UNIT FAMILY RIGHT THROUGH UNTIL TOM BAKER TOOK OVER. HIS LAST APPEARANCE WAS IN THE ANDROID INVASION BUT HE WAS MENTIONED BY THE BRIGADIER IN MAWDRYN UNDEAD AND WAS NOW SELLING CARS.

NO MATTER WHAT MONSTER APPEARED SERGEANT BENTON FACED THEM WITH BRAVERY AND WAS TOTALLY LOYAL TO THE DOCTOR AND THE BRIG. IN THE THREE DOCTORS HE GOT A TRIP TO THE ANTIMATTER UNIVERSE AND IT DIDN’T PHASE HIM WHEN THE SECOND DOCTOR REAPPEARED ALONGSIDE THE THIRD DOCTOR. EVEN THE MASTER DIDN’T SCARE HIM AND THERE WERE TIMES YOU COULD SEE THE MASTER WAS ALMOST ASTONISHED THAT THIS GRUNT WOULD DARE OPPOSE HIM LIKE THIS. BUT THAT WAS BENTON, STRONG, RESOLUTE, LOVED HIS FRIENDS AND DUTY WAS EVERYTHING TO HIM.

AS UNIT FACED SOME OF THE GREAT STORIES IN THE SERIES, BENTON IS THE ONLY COMPANION TO HAVE BEEN A BABY AND APPEARED NAKED UNTIL JOHN BARROWMAN AND DAVID TENNANT IN THE RECENT SHOWS.
