Each day in Advent I will be celebrating one of the TV heroines of 2016 -as let’s face it, it has been a pretty sucky year, and we could all use some female fictional icons to take our mind off Brexit, Trump, and the general doomsday vibe!
Why a heroine and not a hero? Well one of the reasons I am such a TV fanatic is that the genre seems to be far more ‘equal-opportunities than it’s film relation. No longer are the fairer sex subjected to the role of love interest or sister – they are now allowed to be rulers, protagonists, and saviours of mankind. This is both forward-thinking and inspiring, as, let’s face it, a story with twice as many complex characters is twice as interesting!
She started off a battered woman, witnessing the apocalypse and staying alive by the skin of her teeth. She lost friends and family members, yet somehow struggled on through the zombie hordes. She became stronger with each dystopian near-death-experience, and now is arguably the strongest of the entire survivors gang. Unafraid to fight for those she loves, she has crossed a few lines, but she has saved many many lives, and said the things others dare not utter. Long may she reign in King Ezekiel’s court!
