Characters/Letters Meme

Picked this up from Jennie. Rules as follows:

1. Comment on this post.
2. I will give you a letter.
3. Think of 5 fictional characters whose names begin with that letter and post their names and your comments on these characters in your LJ.

Anyhoo, my letter was B, so these were what came to mind:

Bernice Summerfield – Dr Who companion through much of the NAs, which I am trying to read in order at the moment (and have been doing since forever, tbh). Not yet managed to quite “get” the high levels of affection for the character, to be honest.

Bilal – Exxilon from Death to the Daleks. Don’t really know why this occured to me, other than that he’s quite sweet. (Don’t worry, won’t all be Whovian).

Aww.

Bloody Stupid Johnson – Terry Pratchett’s carnival-hall-of-mirrors reflection of Capability Brown. A great archetype.

The Black Man – enigmatic seller of illicit materials from This Town Will Never Let Us Go (and also a cameo in Alien Bodies?). One of the more effective bits of the book, for me.

Big Brother – Orwell’s enduring anthropomorphic vision of an overbearing state. Inevitably always quoted by people making points about something or other, but not always the most relevant dystopia.

So, anyone want a letter?
