HEROES OF DOCTOR WHO BEN JACKSON MICHAEL CRAZE

ABLE SEAMAN BEN JACKSON CAME ABOARD THE TARDIS WITH POLLY AFTER THE WAR MACHINES AND WAS A BREATH OF FRESH AIR AT THE TIME. LOYAL TO THE DOCTOR AND WITH A CRUSH ON POLLY, BEN PROTECTED THEM FROM SMUGGLERS IN OLD ENGLAND AND THE THREAT OF THE CYBERMEN WHEN THEY ARRIVED AT THE POLAR ICE CAPS. BEN WAS READY TO FIGHT ANYTHING THAT THREATENED HIS FRIENDS AND WHEN THE DOCTOR REGENERATED, HE WAS VERY MISTRUSTFUL OF THIS NEWCOMER WHO CLAIMED TO BE THE DOCTOR. WITH NO WAY HOME AND THE TARDIS APPARENTLY VULNERABLE, HE WASN’T GOING TO LET ANYONE CLAIM IT EVEN IF IT MEANT NOT GETTING HOME. BUT BEHIND THE SCENES CHANGES MEANT HIS AND POLLY’S DAYS WERE NUMBERED AND AFTER DEFEATING THE CYBERMEN AGAIN ON THE MOONBASE, THE MACRA, VISITING ATLANTIS, THEY DISAPPEARED DURING THE FACELESS ONES NEVER TO RETURN, HAVING ARRIVED BACK THE DAY THEY LEFT. WITH THE PASSING OF ACTOR MICHAEL CRAZE, BEN CONTINUED IN NOVELS AND MISSING ADVENTURES BUT IS STILL REFERRED TO IN COMPANION CHRONICLES IN THE BIG FINISH SERIES.
