Energetic and thoughtful
I had a boyfriend when I was 13, around 1995 who loved this, and I hated it!
Later, about four years ago I ended up reading one of the novels and faint recollections came back. I saw the episode "Kryten" and from then on was hooked
I came across the audio book of the first novel and then read the novel itself before finding an episode free with a newspaper.
It insipired me to write my first ever fan fiction, and my first TV script, and my first story for years.
It only changed my view of the world in that for a while I was constantly trying to think of new storylines to write about.
