* CharcterizationMarchesOn: A fairly severe example, as he was not originally intended to be a companion and was added on after they'd already filmed a scene of the crew saying goodbye to him, with the next few scripts written initially without his character. As a result, he's playing virtually a completely different and unexpectedly minor character in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS4E4TheHighlanders The Highlanders]]", and in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS4E5TheUnderwaterMenace The Underwater Menace]]", while he's a fairly active player in events, his dialogue and actions are mostly pilfered from Ben, Polly and some of the RagtagBunchOfMisfits characters in the episode and rewritten in Scottish dialect, leading to a lot of out of character behaviour (notably, [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan slapping Polly]]). He gets a little scene penned specifically for him in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS4E6TheMoonbase The Moonbase]]" that expands upon his backstory, but he's playing a [[DistressedDamsel damsel role]] where he's sweet and vulnerable and gets menaced by the monster. In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS4E7TheMacraTerror The Macra Terror]]" he again gets a little scene capitalising on his Scottishness (when he dances the Highland Fling for the cheerleaders) but spends most of the script as a substitute Polly. He doesn't settle down into his main personality until "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS4E8TheFacelessOnes The Faceless Ones]]", which gives him a lot of things to do, some solid character development and even a GirlOfTheWeek.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He was introduced in his first full story "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS2E9TheTimeMeddler The Time Meddler]]" as a LoveableRogue and extremely hot-tempered character who (being a space pilot) was already familiar with the way most things worked, condescendingly calling the Doctor 'Doc' and knowing lots about aliens and time travel science. In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS3E1Galaxy4 Galaxy 4]]" he suddenly develops a much less hot-headed way of voicing disagreements, due to the serial being written for Barbara, and his lines just being hers with some tweaks. In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS3E3TheMythMakers The Myth Makers]]", he takes a middle route between these two characterisations - the more sombre and respectful air of "Galaxy 4" while getting his confrontational personality from "The Time Meddler" back, which remains his default personality from then on.



* ADayInTheLimelight: "The Massacre" is told from his perspective, which arguably makes it the first Doctor-lite episode.

* BadassAdorable: As seen in "The Mind Robber", she's very capable of taking care of herself, when facing off and winning a fight against her favorite fictional character, the Karkus. And the smile on her face when she got Karkus to submit? Priceless.
