For me it has to be Daryl. He's calm, composed and I love his sarcastic manner, it's hilarious. I also like how he's trustworthy and more of a partner to Rick than Shane really was. I mean, when Shane tried it on with Lori for a second time that was just pure ignorance, especially since his partner had actually returned.

Daryl has the best weapon too. I think it's very inventive and clever to have somebody in the cast carrying something other than a gun for once. Yes he does use guns sometimes but the Crossbow is his main weapon.

Just box setting and watching via television this! I am on series 4 now though!

Hershal - Towards the end of Series 2 I really started to like this character. Series 3 he was really quiet minus the amputation of his lower leg. Then in series 4 so far he has been much more prominent. Top actor and tough S.O.B!

The Governor - David Morrissey has been amazing and looks the part! Series 3 and 4 have been entertaining due to him. I look forward to seeing the actor in previous and future roles.

Daryl - I surprise for me as I thought the actor was AWFUL in the pilot episode, but with time he has kicked ass and has been invaluable to the survivors safety. I hated the fact Meryl was alive and looking for him until his demise. His family are now the survivors. The actor has fitted into his role nicely to.

Rick Grimes - An outsider favourite for me. The actor is good as was in C4 Comedy Teachers. I like the fact he isn't in every episode in series 3 and 4. The character just needs a rest at times. I like the fact they explore his battle with trying to be a good human being, a leader yet a father as well despite his loss and mental exhaustion.

I love this show.

Got to be Michonne, i love her!

Least favourite is Glen, I used to like him in Season One but I wish they'd kill him off now, he's annoying, although I reckon either him or Maggie will die in Season 5 and i'm going to hazard a guess that it will be her.

For the first 2 seasons or so I'd probably have to say Rick, then he changed a bit and started making poor/hypocritical decisions so it became a close call between Hershel and Daryl, then . Rick started to grow on me towards the end of S4 though so I'm looking forward to where he goes in S5.

I'm on the side of the zombies! My particular favourite was zombie number 12 at the prison fence. Wow - he really knew how to take a sword to the head.

From the other side, I don't mind most of the characters. Carol has an interesting path with difficult choices, Rick doesn't bother me as he seems to bother others, Michonne also has her baggage, and Tyreese too. I like the characters to be quite conflicted and somewhat broken down as it seems more like what people would actually be like in those circumstances (if those circumstances are even imaginable).

All in all, I enjoy the show best when things go badly for the characters in it, so I'm hoping for plenty of high-profile deaths in upcoming episodes.

Michonne I think, followed by Daryl.

I used to like Glen but he's got a bit too brooding for me (I suppose your loved ones being constantly slaughtered by zombies would do that to a person)

Too scared to like anyone that much in case they unexpectedly get bumped off. Very much like game of thrones in that respect.

Rick, then Daryl, Carl and Michonne. I was sad Hersel got killed.
My least fav is Sasha, then Tyreese.

The episode that featured on her in the last season (maybe the penultimate or the one before) was the best episode last season. Carol seems to have the toughest path of them all.

Tough question! My favourite characters right now are Michonne, Carol and Daryl. I also like Maggie though realise that's probably an unpopular opinion...

Carol, Michonne, Maggie. That order. All the rest are kind of meh for me. Rick is a toss pot of the highest order. Carl needs a hole in the head. Daryl is a mumbling cliche at this point, I adored Hershel and Andrea, two of the best characters and they kill them off! I honestly feel like some of the walking dead budget needs to go on acting lessons, as Daryl, Beth and a few others could do with a serious brush up.

I liked the Governor. I thought he had an interesting character twist when he grew the beard, became a kind of Snake Plissken anti-hero and hooked up with that family before he got killed, but that story arc seemed to be over as quickly as it began, which was a shame.

Probably Carol & Michonne - Always hated Carol in the first 2 seasons but she's come on the most out of all of them.
