Television Heroes (#1 in an occasional series): Harriet Jones
Harriet Jones, Prime Minister and MP for Flydale North. Who stood up to the Daleks and the Slitheen and the Sycorax and the Doctor and said “Not today, not here.” Who, when faced with a worldwide crisis or two, puts her best efforts into dispensing soothing hot beverages. Who would have given her life many times over, and eventually did, to to protect her country and her planet. Who was modest and faithful and selfless and so so brave, even at the end.
