I haven't seen all the episodes featuring the various characters on your list.

But I enjoyed the performances of both Allistair Dimple and Caleb Stokes.

I really liked Aunt Lilian. She was so happy and nice and witty. :)

I really liked Jonathan Ravenhurst Blackwell and his storyline with Sara.

I didn't really like Evelyn, but that is more because I hated the way the old gossips talked about Alec and Evelyn together.

I liked Aunt Lilian the most.
Johnathan Blackwell was my favorite, too. At first I thought he was going to strike up a romance with Sara.

My least favorite is easy--I hated Sydney Carver from the moment she stepped off the stagecoach. My favorite is Caleb Stokes, I think. Or maybe Romney Penhallow, for the more youthful side of Hetty that he brought out.

Hobbie, I'd have to say Ezekiel Crane is my favorite special guest star. He really helped establish Gus's story and didn't try to steal the spotlight. He was also interesting. He would scare the children to keep them away from real threats, like Abe Pike.

My least favorite character... There are a lot of candidates. Maybe Countess Polenska. I still can't understand half of what she said. Also, I got the sense that Faye Dunaway was grandstanding and had no interest in the other Avonlea characters.

I'd have to say Romney Penhallow. Too bad he couldn't stick around!

Now that I've seen season 7, I must say that I really like Aunt Lillian. Isabelle Carrington is another of my least favorites. What an irritating woman!

I thought Allistair Dimple was wonderful in that role.

I also enjoyed Caleb Stokes' character. I can see why they thought of keeping him on the show.

Maybe he and Olivia could've gotten together...

Couldn't agree more!

Each and every "special guest" was interesting, but I'd say:
- Romney Penhallow
- Jonathan Ravenhurst Blackwell
- Aunt Liliane ("Woman of Importance" - one of my favourite episodes).
