These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Gently Benevolent: Like all children outside France, I was not born evil.
Draco in Leather Pants: Well... in the fourth series, Gently Benevolent starts wearing leather pants, and by some strange coincidence this is also the series that calls most attention to how good-looking he is and where women seem to be falling for him all the time.
Taken even further in the appendix to the novelization, where it's revealed that at the age of 90, long after the death of Ripely, Sir Philip and Mister Benevolent (well over a hundred, but thanks to dabbling in the dark arts still appearing in his forties) set up a home together in Worcestershire. For the next twenty years or so they're rumored to be traveling the pan-dimensional universe together — though, the text implies, they "may just have stayed in Worcestershire, really, really quietly, without anyone noticing."
