In the novels Edit
In the TV series Edit
Because of this, Styles resented Doughty, and this resentment only grew over time, finally coming to a boiling point as the Hotspur was quarantined to prevent talk of Betsy and Jerome Bonaparte coming out. Styles blamed their bad luck on Doughty, Doughty insulted Styles, and a fight broke out. When Midshipman Orrock tried to break up the fight, Doughty struck out at him.
Doughty was supposed to hang for this, but Hornblower allowed him to escape to the American ship Liberty.
Doughty was portrayed by Ron Cook.
