I genuinely can't think of one. People slag off Beryl Reid in Earthshock, but I thought she was fabulous. There's a number of female characters I dislike, but they are almost exclusively played by genuinely lovely actresses. I suppose I shall have to say Catherine Tate, although I recognise that my dislike of her is mostly irrational and based on her comedy persona rather than her personally.

I think the reason I'm reluctant to answer this one is because this morning I dipped into Chicks Dig Timelords. Obviously me being me I read the Sixie articles first, and while Tansy Rayner Roberts's one about Trial of a Timelord was awesome, the one about season 22 (my favourite season, lets not forget) was a sour, one-sided, cherry-picking rant about how awful Peri is. And I recognised in it some of the way I can be cruel about other companions. I think, to an extent, the writer reacts to Peri the same way I react to Ace, and while I have had the opportunity to revisit and re-examine that reaction I don't think she has. And it makes me very cross that my favourite season is covered solely from the point of view of slagging off a character I like instead of the wider story points it has to offer.

So I have resolved to do less slagging off and more positive stuff.

We'll see how long that resolution lasts.

So, the Torygraph have printed an article which is going to piss off a lot of people in the Lib Dems. There are a couple of theories as to the source: one is that the parliamentary Lib Dems haven't thought through how controversial the idea is and have leaked it themselves because they are proud of it, and/or are running it up the flagpole to see who salutes. The other theory is that the tories know it will cause the Lib Dems to fight like cats in a sack and have leaked it and are right now popping corn. Dear reader, which of these theories do you think is more likely?
