Month-long TV Meme - Day #14 - Favourite male character.

When nicis_anatomy started to post this meme last month, I promised her that I would do it in June. So I am keeping my promise. From seeing Nici's posts last month, I know several of my answers will be the same as hers.

Day 14 - Favourite male character.

This is not an easy one as I have two equal favourite male characters: Gibbs and Ducky, I simply cannot separate them. However, as I'm being good and sticking to the 'terms' of this meme, I am going to make a choice. I go for Doctor Donald 'Ducky' Mallard.



I have two reasons for choosing Ducky over Gibbs: 1) Ducky needs more love showing to him and 2) Ducky (well David McCallum) was the reason I started to watch NCIS in the first place.

Ducky is a wonderful character; he's an expert at his job, but not content with just dissecting bodies, he studied further and got another degree to enable him to dissect the mind. He now performs psychological autopsies as well as bodily autopsies. He has many stories to tell and just about everything reminds him of something. He's a good friend, colleague and mentor, supportive, loyal, caring, compassionate, loving - he's just 'ducky'. And he is, of course, one half of my favourite pairing. And he most definitely is 'older not dead' something Gibbs said about him and he should know *g*

I could wax lyrical about him for a considerable time. However, given I wrote an essay on him a few years back, I'll direct you to that instead.
