I only missed Avon out cos he's bound to appear in everyone's list. He would however feature in my 'character you must watch no matter what is happening all around him' list. Heavily...

Amazingly your list is the same as mine. Ditto Avon!!!

One little point of discussion.

Surely Travis is just a single character, isn't he? Two actors playing one character. So surely when it comes to the character, which is the discussion here, it's just "Travis" than "Travis Mk 1". Why exclude Brian Croucher's episodes that consist of 8/13ths of the appearances of Travis, including arguably the finest moments for the character in Trial?

Stephen and Brian were equally great, but different, as Travis and it all adds up to make a fascinating character, who develops well in episodes such as Duel, Deliverance, Trial, The Keeper and Star One, and turns out to be far more than an archetypal bad guy.

I completely accept what you are saying but I DO prefer Mk 1. I will say this though: for me, it is maybe what the writers do with the character in Series B rather than it being any reflection on BC.

[Edit - replying to Trevor Travis]

Very fair point. But for me, Travis is a single name that covers two pretty distinct characters. Some of the difference is in the acting, some of it is in the writing. For the purposes of picking my 'favourites', the key point is that the two net results are so divergent that I wouldn't be comfortable trying to give some kind of composite score to 'Travis' and ranking him/them accordingly. Some people no doubt prefer Brian's interpretation to Stephen's - and more power to them. Personally, I really like Series 1 Travis and I'd have much preferred more of the same in Series 2 (even if that meant him remaining more of a 2D villain) and I'm happy reflecting that in my '5 favourite characters' list.

Mind you, there IS one thing I WOULD change about Series 1 Travis - I'd stop him crossing his legs. Might be in Project Avalon, but he does it in a 'sitting in a corridor waiting for an appointment with the specialist' kind of way, rather than a 'nonchalant air of casual menace' way. Somewhat undermines the hardman persona.

Fair enough! But, to me, there is only one character, albeit played by two different actors. Not sure if I agree with the writing of Travis being THAT bad in Season B. Yes, he's badly written in e.g. Voice From The Past and maybe Hostage too, but then again Trial is THE Travis episode - the best of the lot for the character, with tremendous writing by Chris Boucher and tremendous acting by Brian. I rate both Stephen and Brian in the role - both brought the right aspect to the character at the right time.
 
Deva
I put Travis as my number 4 just based on the character of Travis rather than thinking about the actors or scripts. I think that he is just one character who Brian could reinterpret quite liberally in the second series thanks to a deft piece of CB writing, 'The therapists have left me... I don't know...'
Other characters changed too over the course of their adventures, series 4 Avon is a very different to series 1 Avon, and Cally seemed to be one character in Time Squad and then pretty much change into another overnight, which I wish she hadn't.
