Which version of Spike/William did you like best? State your reasons for your choices below.
I don't particularly like William - I don't see him as dorky, sweet or timid. I tend to read him in terms of class arrogance combined with the manners of Victorian Medievalism...and his hair gets on my nerves. TBH, I think the allusion to Jack the Ripper via the Dr Gull reference is a clever hint that darker things lie beneath the surface (and what those things might be)...and suggests how the logic of Spike's life pans out. Though I understand where he comes from, Bratty Spike irritates me (plus I don't like his hair). I ticked all the others because I like his hair and because I follow the future anterior guidance offered in Lessons...I go back to the beginning and connect everything. As a result, I can't separate the manifestations.
