Today: Carson Beckett

A few weeks ago, I got the most distrubing news possible, through the wrong medium. I found out as I watched an episode of Stargate Atlantis...that Dr. Carson Beckett died.

I have to tell you that the shock of his death lasted almost a week (I still don't think I'm over it - hence the post). I felt lost, there was a piece of me missing. I think it affected me so much, because I was not expecting it. Absolutely NO warning prepared me for the loss.

This post is in memory of the dear, scottish doctor. He was kind and caring and did everything he could to save the lives of those around him. The actor: Paul McGillion:: is way cool too. And now, in a single episode, they're both gone.

I should be used to it...with Dr. Daniel Jackson (My favorite Stargate SG-1 character) dying ALL THE TIME. Seriously....he dies a few times a season. But I wasn't used to it. I'll never be used to it. They should bring the good doc back for us poor, addicted fans.

My best friend, Mel, wrote a very stirring poem about the episode and posted it on under the author name: dream_painter .

I'll always miss him...
