    As much as I wish I could talk to some of those who have passed away for this post let us deal with those who are still with us.

    I'm not a big enough fan to want to chase people on any show - but I would love to know why Ben and Polly were written out so quickly off the show. Maybe either actor mentioned this on a dvd/etc...

    Anneke Wills covers some of this on the Lost TV Episodes Audio Soundtracks Collection Four 1967 CD set and The Tenth Planet DVD. It seem they want Ben out to open more time for Jamie. They wanted Polly to stay but Ms. Wills decided to leave with Craze rather than take a chance of staying on the show too long.
