B is for... Barclay
A young man who was travelling on the No. 200 bus from Westminster to South London when it passed through a wormhole as it drove through a road tunnel. The bus ended up on the planet San Helios, where it came under threat from the omnivorous Swarm. He had been on his way to have a meal with a friend named Tina, who he hoped would become his girlfriend. Barclay had an aptitude for mechanics, and helped fix the bus' engines. Once the Doctor had succeeded in getting the bus back to Earth, he recommended that Captain Magambo enlist Barclay for UNIT, due to his technical skills.
Played by: Daniel Kaluuya. Appearances: Planet of the Dead (2009).
