So, here is yet another attempt at doing a 30 days meme in the space of 40 days. This is the 30 days of female characters meme, stolen from [personal profile] scrollgirl.

Day 1 - Favourite lead female character - Lynda Day

The fabulous Lynda Day only just beats out Kathryn Janeway for favourite lead female character, but I have loved Lynda for many more years. Lynda Day, editor of the Junior Gazette, the symbol of my high school ambitions, and possibly also an early crush... Lynda, who won't take crap from anyone, and certainly not from any male. Even thought Spike was clearly perfect for her. But her independence was far more important than her happiness in a relationship, and her ambition was her defining characteristic AND THAT WAS OKAY. Never once, watching Press Gang, even while I was cheering for Lynda/Spike, did I get the idea that Lynda was a negative role model. My mother had no problem with me adoring Lynda Day. My English teacher encouraged it.

The thing is, every time anyone says that Moffat can't write women, I boggle, because Moffat wrote Lynda Day. And I've heard Julia Sawalha's commentaries for some of those episodes: all Lynda's intelligence and awesomeness comes from Moffat, not from Sawalha. (It seems to me that Lydia Bennett is the role of Sawalha's that most matches her own personality.)
