Top 10: Favourite Fictional Characters often better than reality. Far off places, weird and wonderful situations, and characters who are totally captivating. It's a tough ask, picking ten favourite characters, but I've narrowed it to television in the hope of making it less of an ordeal.

  • Olivia Dunham - Fringe

Olivia: I was hoping you might have one of your... weird connections...
Peter: Weird connections?
Olivia: They're always a little weird.
Peter: Well, you're always a little weird.

  • Sherlock Holmes - Sherlock

I'm in shock! Look, I have a blanket!

  • Captain Jack Harkness - Torchwood

Jack: Who has a sonic screwdriver?
The Doctor: I do!
Jack: Who looks at a screwdriver and thinks, "Ooh, this could be a little more sonic."?
The Doctor: What, you've never been bored? Never had a long night? Never had a lot of cabinets to put up?

  • The Doctor - Doctor Who

Adelaide: State your name, rank, and intention!
The Doctor: The Doctor. Doctor. Fun.

  • Peter Bishop - Fringe

Peter: You know, until this year I'd never actually been to a mental hospital.
Olivia: Learn to like new things

  • Walter Bishop - Fringe

  • Most of us experience life as a linear progression... ...but this is an illusion - because every day, life presents us with an array of choices... ...each choice leads to a new path. To go to work. To stay home. And each choice we take creates a new reality.

    • Ianto Jones - Torchwood

    That's what I love about Torchwood. By day, chasing the scum of the universe; come midnight, you're the wedding fairy.

    • Sheldon Cooper - The Big Bang Theory

    I think that you have as much of a chance of having a sexual relationship with Penny as the Hubble Telescope does of discovering that in the center of every black hole there’s a little man with a flashlight searching for a circuit breaker.

    • Cal Lightman - Lie to Me

    Torres: What am I supposed to believe about you?
    Cal: You can believe whatever you want. It's what everybody else does.

    Honourable mentions to Sam Tyler and Gene Hunt from Life on Mars, Ziva David and Abby Sciuto from NCIS, Veronica Mars from Veronica Mars, Charlie Eppes and Larry Fleinhardt from Numb3rs, Mal Reynolds from Firefly and Spike from Buffy The Vampire Slayer. 

    Music: Watching Spirited
