In which Patricia realizes she should get a Benton icon.  
I've just finished watching episode 1 of Day of the Daleks, and a scene caught my attention.

(Jo is checking the creepy, empty house.)

(Suddenly, a noise makes her start.)

(It's Benton.)
Benton: Everything all right, miss?

Jo: It was until you came along! You took years off my life creeping about like that!
Benton: Well, I didn't want to disturb the Doc.

Benton: (whispers) What's he up to?
Jo: Well, at the moment, he's carrying on rather like a one-man food and wine society.

Benton: Oh, talking of food, you, er, you couldn't get us a bite to eat, could you, miss? I'm famished!

Jo: Hang on.
(She goes back into the study.)

(Smiling, she picks up the plate of cheese and a glass of wine and starts to walk out.)

Doctor: (Puzzled.) Jo?
Jo: All in a good cause.

(She passes the items to Benton.)
Benton: Ah, you've saved my life.
(He cuts a piece of cheese and is about to eat it when...)

Mike Yates: Sergeant Benton!
Benton: Sir!

Benton: (muttering) Oh, no...

Mike: Just what do you think you're up to, Benton?
Benton: Er, I... was just checking, sir.
Mike: Yes, well I want you to go and check on number three patrol.

Mike: Move, Sergeant Benton.
Benton: Sir.

(He leaves.)

(Mike spots the plate and glass.)
Mike: Jo, how thoughtful!

(He takes the glass and has a large swig of the wine, then hands it back.)
Jo: Well, that wasn't very kind of you.

(Mike takes a piece of cheese.)
Mike: R.H.I.P., Jo.
Jo: Pardon?

Mike: Rank Has Its Privileges. Thank you.
(He walks off.)

Forget Invasion of the Dinosaurs. THIS is why you should feel like kicking Mike.

*pets Benton* There, there, my dolly little soldier. I'll fix you a big pizza and wait for mean ol' Captain Yates with a mallet while you eat.

Yeah, I'm all for kicking Yates. He just has that face that says "do it!". Stealing from Benton is just a bonus.
You could make an icon of nothing but Benton's chin and that serious dimple. Everyone would know who it was...

I normally bear no ill feelings for Mike, whom I see as misguided rather than evil. However, stealing from Benton, especially after all the bonding they did in The Daemons? Ugh.

Ooh, yeah. That would look perfect. :)
