Day 2: Favourite supporting female character

Clearly, not Janeway. She's a lead character if ever there was one.

So: supporting characters that are up for the "best supporting" role: Sarah Jackson, B'Elanna Torres, Willow Rosenberg, Cordelia Chase, Hotlips Houlihan, CJ Cregg, Abigail Bartlet, Donnatella Moss.

But I think it's Ruth Evershed who wins. Ruth was never a lead role, even when she was the lead in individual episodes. But she was the heart of MI-5 for the years she was there. And when she was no longer there, it wasn't the same place at all. I suspect this only makes sense to fans of Spooks, but the importance of Ruth Evershed is... so very central to how I see that team. That group of people. That team.

Ruth is awesome. Ruth is my choice for favourite supporting female character.

I've never watched Spooks, but I have a fondness for this character because she must be one of my in-laws. (All the Eversheds in the world come from the same Sussex family, and I'm married to one of them.)
