I was thinking about this the other day... I am a massive fan of Sci-fi... I love the escapism and the stories!!!
There have been so many GREAT characters over the years... Captain Kirk, Han Solo, Roy Batty, Ed209, Q... I could go on all day...
So... Film, Book, TV Series, Human, Alien, Robot, Cyborg or whatever, doesn’t matter... who is your favourite Sci-Fi Character and why?
At the moment... my vote would go to Dr Walter Bishop from the Fringe series...
John Noble's performance, to bring this character to life, is second to none in my opinion!
Amazing bit of work has gone into this character... Dr Bishop has a very dark past, sometimes reminding me almost of the evil Nazi scientists from the
1930's and 40's... but, since his mental breakdown, has turned into an innocent, almost childlike character!
Couple this with his amazing intelligence, the writers have given us a character that you cannot help but love... Raising moral and ethical questions
in my own mind about forgiveness and punishment!!
