I’m just re-watching Downton Abbey, and think Lady Grantham, played by Maggie Smith, might be mine.
Mind you, I also liked Pam Shipman, played by Alison Steadman, in Gavin and Stacey.

I love Saul Goodman/Jimmy McGill played by Bob Odenkirk in Better Call Saul.

I like the lady detectives - Vera and Miss Marple. Brenda Blethyn and Joan Hickson.
Also loved Sydney Poitier as Mr Tibbs.

Tom Hardy as James Delaney in Taboo

Jerome Flynn as Bennet Drake in Ripper Street (also his side kick Homer Jackson)

Andy Whitfield as Spartacus in the first of that series. Tragically Andy died shortly afterwards.

Gorgeous Luca Zingaretti as Montalbano, David Tennant and Michael Sheen in anything. Stephanie Cole has been brilliant in so many things and I really like Holliday Grainger in Strike.
