Meme of the week: Who’s your TV heroine?

Quite a simple one this week:

Who’s your TV heroine and why?

Heroine obviously has a lot of mileage, so it can be someone you admire (since your TV heroine need not be fictional), a favourite character, or even someone you think is a good role model.

I’m going to go for a combo of Verity Lambert, Kate Adie and someone else I’ll probably think of later once everyone’s started suggesting people (otherwise, I’ll end up picking Liz Shaw again). How about you?

As always, leave a comment with your answer or a link to your answer on your own blog.
