Jamie McCrimmon (Frazer Hines)

The Doctor rescued Jamie from the aftermath of the battle of Culloden in 1746. The young Highlander is tough, hardy and full of fighting spirit, although his upbringing means he is superstitious and largely ignorant of technology.

Jamie is brave and sometimes has to be restrained from rash actions that would endanger his life. He is more a fighter than a thinker, but he has a shrewd mind which is quite capable of tackling practical problems. Despite coming from a culture which uses muskets and flintlock pistols, Jamie has no difficulty understanding how to use weapons such as blasters.

The Doctor's actions sometimes puzzle Jamie, who cannot always work out what the Doctor intends to do. When he does understand what is happening it is quite likely that he will unintentionally blurt out part of the plan before realizing that it was meant to be a secret.

Jamie is a brawny youth with brown hair and blue eyes. He wears a kilt and sometimes a plaid; his tunic is often supplemented or replaced by clothes from the TARDIS's wardrobe. Unusually for one of the Doctor's companions, Jamie carries a weapon, a dirk which is usually stuck in the top of one of his long socks.
