HEROES OF DOCTOR WHO JAMIE MCCRIMMON FRAZER HINES

FIRST BROUGHT INTO THE SERIES IN THE HIGHLANDERS, JAMIE WAS NOT TO BE A COMPANION BUT THE PRODUCERS SAW SOMETHING AND KNOWING BEN AND POLLY WERE LEAVING, THOUGHT JAME WOULD E A GOOD REPLACEMENT.

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TI THINK OF PATRICK TROUGHTON’S DOCTOR WITHOUT JAMIE BY HIS SIDE AND THE CHEMISTRY AND CAMARADERIE IS EVIDENT TO THIS DAY. BUT A LOT OF THEIR STORIES HAVE BEEN LOST TO TIME BUT ENOUGH SURVIVES TO SEE THE 2ND DOCTOR COULD NOT EXIST WITHOUT THE YOUNG HUGHLANDER AND THEIR OFF SCREEN LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP TRANSLATED WELL TO THE SCREEN. BRAVE AND FIERCELY LOYAL TO THE DOCTOR JAMIE WAS INVOLVED IN SOME OF THE SERIES CLASSICS, BOTH SURVIVING AND THE LOST. FROM DALEKS TO CYBERMEN, CHAMELEONS AND SEAWEED MONSTERS, JAMIE FOUGHT AND IS THE ONLY COMPANION TO BE REPLACED MIDSTORY IN THE MIND ROBBER WHEN FRAZER TOOK CHICKENPOX. HE HAD A BRIEF CAMEO IN THE FIVE DOCTORS DUE TO WORK COMMITMENTS BUT SUCH WAS THE CLAMOUR FOR A FULL SCALE RETURN HE AND PATRICK TROUGHTON RETURNED IN THE TWO DOCTORS WITH COLIN BAKER AGAINST THE SONTARANS. JAMIE TEAMED UP WITH THE SIXTH DOCTOR AND THE RAPPORT NEVER CHANGED; TO HIM IT AS STILL THE DOCTOR. IF THE TIME LORDS HADN’T FORCED HIS DEPARTURE AND WIPED HIS MEMORY, JAMIE WOULD PROBABLY STILL BE IN THE TARDIS.

IT IS NO SURPRISE THEN THAT THE 6TH DOCTOR TEAM UP WAS REVISITED IN A TRILOGY OF BIG FINISH STORIES WHEN JAMIE RETURNS TO THE TARDIS WITH NO MEMORY OF BEING THERE THE FIRST TIME ROUND. JAMIE HAS ALSO FEATURED IN VARIOUS NOVELS AND COMPANION CHRONICLES ALSO FOR BIG FINISH. JAMIE’S STORY WAS ALSO CONCLUDED IN THE COMIC STRIPS WHEN THE 6TH DOCTOR DISCOVERS JAMIE AS AN OLD MAN, LAUGHED AT BECAUSE OF HIS STORIES OF ALIENS AND OTHER WORLDS. THE TIME LORD MIND WIPE DIDN’T WORK. TOGETHER THEY BATTLE THE CYBERMEN, TYING UP A LOOSE END FROM THE SERIES AND ENDING WITH JAMIE SACRIFICING HIMSELF TO STOP THE CYBERNETIC MONSTERS.

FRAZER HINES IS AS FRIENDLY AND IN LOVE WITH THE SERIES AS EVER AND IS A GREAT ADDITION TO ANY CONVENTION. JAMIE’S LEGACY WILL NEVER DIE.
