No replacement for R. Biggs


In one of his recent posts on the moderated newsgroup, JMS said that will not be a recast for Dr. Franklin character.

More than a fair tribute.

His own words here.

Far better (and probably easier, anyway) to replace a ships Doctor with another one than to replace such a loved and well known actor with a "duplicate". :(
Judging from his response, the thought to recast him never crossed his mind. It would be a travesty if he even considered it.
