Ben in series five (the final series)
Benjamin David Brockman more commonly known as Ben is a fictional character in the British comedy series 'Outnumbered'.
Ben is the middle child in the Brockman family, and is 15 or 14 years old. (in Season 5). He is a hyperactive and crafty kid. In Series 1, he had developed an extraordinary talent for lying, which his parents are clearly annoyed about. They actually have good reason to be annoyed about his lying as it is causing them a few headaches. For example, at a school football match, parents come up to Pete (his father) and he realises that Ben has been telling them lies about him, such as that he is a SAS bodyguard and how he is so bravely fighting.
Ben is a very eccentric, stubborn, unusual, nosy, immature, and funny child - he often refuses to do what his parents tell him to. Pete and Sue often give up with Ben.
He is very clever and is exceedingly skilled at chess. He is well versed in science though his curiosity and impulsivity towards the subject has been known to cause 'health and safety' issues within the classroom. He has a passion for history and often quotes random historical facts. He also seems to know a lot about religion despite not being religious himself.
Ben has many friends at school which he plays games with usually involving rounding people up. His form tutor notes that he is very popular.
He sometimes can be argumentative sometimes with his siblings, mostly Karen but overall the three get along.
