To the man in the street who remembers the show and indeed to many fans, the two iconic characters from the series where Avon and Servalan.

Buit which was the greatest icon? I don't just mean in terms of acting - where personally I'd give Jackie the edge - but in terms of capturing the public imagination.

I believe his hairdo eventually went off and had a career of its own, stunt doubling for Captain Janeway's hair.

Avon is definitely the more iconic of the two.

I voted for Avon
maybe you should have had 2 Polls one male and one female
next time ok?
I am also a big fan of Jackie Pearce so would have preferred 2
there was a Eurovision style Poll on another forum I post on and
it was really fun. First time I did a Poll like that
Moggy had the poll and it was a number one-ten choice for fave
character

Pitting the two most popular characters in the series against each other was too good a poll not to do!

In my experience, the non-fan remembers Servalan far better than any other character. Jacqueline Pearce gave the 70s and early-80s viewing public something that they had literally never seen before.

The other iconic character even the most casual viewer remembers is, I am sure, Orac. How many people watching B7 thought "Having a portable computer that can fit on your lap and talk to all the other computers in the world seems like a really great idea. I want one!!" Even that noise Orac made when he was switched on seems to have entered the popular consciousness. I remember everyone at school making it whenever the class swot said anything.
