Ode to Doug!
There will be times where I will focus on the minor characters of ‘Skins.’ Today is my first minor character detour. However to call this guy “minor” is a bit of an insult. He basically is Skins. He is the only character to be in every single Series and to greet every single generation with open arms. I can think of no better person to start this ode to the lesser credited than the godfather of Skins: Doug.
hardletskins asked: Doug or Toxic Bob
Oh god. They are both leaders among men. They are both friggin’ awesome and give the best advice. I can’t choose man. It’s like choosing between the Dalai Lama and Mother Teresa. I guess I will go with loyalty, because honestly there is no other way I can answer this question… and go with Doug. I have known him the longest.
“I wish adults could make more promises.” - Doug
I feel that way quite a bit around my students. We want to promise them a wonderful world with amazing things where everything will work out. We can’t though. Doug a great educator.
I’m a student teacher and my life goal is to become a teacher like Doug.
