Able Seaman Benjamin "Ben" Jackson was a Royal Navy sailor serving aboard the HMS Teazer during the mid-1960s. Having travelled with the Time Lord known as the Doctor, he took the opportunity to return to his own time when the TARDIS arrived on the day he had departed.


Early lifeEdit

When he was a child, he lived with others in a residence opposite a brewery. He claimed that you could take a walk and get tipsy at the same time. He had a headmaster who was nicked for not paying his bus fare. (DW: "The Power of the Daleks")

He joined the Royal Navy, and held the rank of able seaman. By July 1966, he served as a radar plot rating on the HMS Teazer. (DW: "The War Machines")
