Who’s your favourite fictional journalist?

Occasional contributor Linda Jones is asking over on her blog who our favourite fictional journalists are. My somewhat incoherent reply:

Ooh, tricky. So many good ones to choose from. Tin Tin? Sarah Jane Smith in Doctor Who, etc? There’s Kevin McKidd in Journeyman to look forward to. I was always kind of partial to David Warner in Hold the Back Page. And Julia Sawalha in Press Gang. Danny in The West Wing? John Simm in State of Play?
I’d probably go for Darren McGavin in Kolchak: The Night Stalker though.
Who says I watch too much television?

But how about you guys? Answer here, answer there, answer in your own blog: the meme is on.
