Me too. So glad that she got to be 8Doc's first smut! (If we pretend the curtain didn't fall in Dying Days)

I love Benny too. I think cos she's original to the NAs, so she doesn't violate my childhood.

Benny's one of the few original novel characters I've really gotten into. Sam, almost, but not quite, and I rather gave up towards the end of her tenure, while Fitz hadn't quite had the chance to grow on me.

Re violating childhoods: yeah. This is true. PC is the Great Retconartist when it comes to Gallifrey. Depending on my mood, I either think I like what he's done, or want to grab him by the scruff and throw him out the window, and he can take his Looms and his Others with him.

He was himself weaved on a loom. And he is Other and Special.

Snerk.

Benny Summerfield (Bernice) is a character from the Doctor Who: New Adventures novels. Nostalgia had posted lo the rant about the evils of Benny's creator, the author Paul Cornell (who used to be just plain old fan/BNF Paul Cornell), so I'd assumed (wrongly) that she wasn't a Benny fan.

Bernice "Surprise" Summerfield rules! And she taught Samwise Gamgee everything he knows about wielding a frying pan!

Hee! (Anyone who can star in a book called The Mary-Sue Extrusion and use Mary Sue in its original context hundreds of years into the future? Gets my vote.)
