Ignore what you may have heard or read and try him out fir yourself. You may be pleasantly surprised Smiley

First I've heard of him is on this forum and he's been praised here so I think I'll end up liking him. *Shrugs* Smiley

finally found other people woh love adric!!!! hate it when people keep putting him down just because he was young!!!! argh ever since i first watched him in the keeper of traken i fell in love with him, yeah he can be cheesey at times but in a cute way haha, i even went round all my digital names and renamed myself missadric2 its like my second name now everyone calls me it, even in college sometimes haha. So proud of myself hehe anyway youre completely right in the character ideas if Adric had been left on his own with the Doctor maybe more people would have liked him oh but no he's young, arrogant and naive we dont like him, come on guys we were all like that at some point in our lives grow up!!!! sorry rant over *coughs*

I've read some truly awful things about Adric, but I've seen him in a few episodes now and I think he's alright. Not the most easy to warm to, but not as bad as people have indicated. I also think his acting is fine, too, despite what many have said.

I've always liked the character of Adric and I've never fully understood why so many people don't. I mean, everyone has their tastes of course, but the amount of negativity aimed at this one character is overwhelming. As character arcs go, he had a pretty interesting one, and though at times the acting for the character was a little off centre, for the most part I'd argue that he was played as well as, or even better than some of his castmates.

I think the biggest problem for the character was behind the scenes. Tom Baker didn't like Matthew Waterhouse (though has said in the years since that he was far too hard on him and that he was a nice guy and better than he gets credit for, which is nice), Janet Fielding and Peter Davison seemed to hate the poor guy too, even now rarely having a nice word to say about him, and the writers didn't seem all too keen on having a male companion around, especially once he had been joined by two attractive young women and the TARDIS started getting crowded. The whole thing seemed doomed to fail and I think possibly many fans have latched on to that.

I'd heard bad things about Adric, so I was skeptical to say the least. But I had also heard bad things about the 6th Doctor, and I ended up liking him pretty well.

After watching...I freaking LOVED Adric. I wish he'd stuck around longer, but he also got the exit of all exits. Nobody's going to forget The Companion That Died. Really, truly dead. I cried, and I cried quite a bit.

I completely agree 100% with your assessment here. In fact, I prefer Adric to Tegan, who I've always found annoying, and your Adric/ Wesley analogy was spot-on. Of course, that may be because I like Wil Wheaton's characterization and portrayal too. Hey, he's better than Deanna Troi! ("I can sense you're feeling upset, Captain." So can I! Patrick Stewart is a mater emoter!)
PS: If you don't get what I said about Troi above, immediately, don't bother to figure it out. You won't understand it.

Tegan is very hard to like and I go through waves with her. For the most part she is ok but she is horribly written in some stories and I think my view is slightly tainted because I've also come to hear a lot that the actress isn't particularly nice either.
