By this, I don't mean the one with the greatest detectoring skill, but the one we most enjoy watching or reading. So, if anyone wishes to nominate their five most favourite from literature, film, tv, or stage; I can then compile a poll of the top five (or more depending on the spread/amount of interest) most nominated 'tecs on the 1st Oct with the voting to run for a couple of weeks before announcing the winner. Incidentally, detectives that come as a pair, such as Starsky & Hutch for example, only counts as one nomination.
Just to kick off, my five nominations are:
- 1: Sherlock Holmes
3: 'Dirty' Harry Callahan
4: Hercule Poirot
5: Endeavour Morse
