WARNING: Spoilers for the Season 1 episode 'Seige I'


Don't be ridiculous.

He was annoying, smug and, and, British, don't let's forget British.

There is no way that we could have ever been friends, at least not in the traditional sense of the word.

He disliked me because I was smarter than he was.

He disliked me because, well I was better looking.

And yes I know I shouted at him when he dropped me from a great height, but it really hurt and I still have the bruises even now, and you wouldn't believe the time I have to spend on chiropractic treatment but...

I miss him.

Those clipped phrases and, and his way of relating to Elizabeth that none of us have ever quite managed.

His innate ability to state the oh-so-obvious without a moment's thought and believe it was a real contribution to the team.

His natural skills with the technology.

It's absolutely ridiculous...

But just occasionally, I wish it had been anyone else, rather than Peter on the satellite that day.

God, I miss him.
