Day Ten: Favourite female character in a scifi/supernatural show
Oh, jeepers, I don't know. The main sci-fi/supernatural show I watch at the moment is Doctor Who. I love Donna and River Song both but I've discussed River Song already and I plan to discuss Donna later. I suppose I could go with something from Star Wars, but that isn't technically a show and I've already done some there, too. I've recently started watching Blake's 7 and am about half-way through the first season, but I don't feel any strong attachment to either of the two main female characters yet. Reaching back into my past viewing, I guess I could pick someone from Highlander, but the only main recurring female character there is Amanda. I like Amanda, I think she's a bit of fun and fluff for the show, but I don't love her precisely because she is a bit of fun and fluff. She is in many ways a combination of the stereotypes of "strong woman" and "femme fatale" and is therefore somewhat flat and certainly not a fully realized, three-dimensional, character. I suppose the lesson here is that I really need to stop saying "I need to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer someday" and instead actually watch it since from everything I've heard I'd almost certainly have a better answer to this question if I'd watched that.
