    Ok, I would make a list of them all, but lets all just post and see who get the most votes!

    In no particular order:
    1) Esther Sommerson
    2) Lady Dedlock
    3) Sergent George
    4) Alan Woodcourt

    Esther. Those pockmarks look like freckles or acne. Her eyes are very blue. I like her personality. She seems like a nice person to have for a friend.

    Inspector Bucket is a great character.

    The actress that plays Esther is incredible though. Bleak House is my favorite book of all time and I was shocked when they actually made a mini series that was worthy of it. And that actress is the one that made it go.

    Smallweed was funny too. Poor granddaughter!
    I bet when his family gets their portraits done, it's in x-rays!

    Lady Deadlock for me. That charactor made me forget all about Scully.

    This fantastic show only came to Australia this week, but so far i totally adore Esther! She's great! Great casting too. I can't wait to see the next episode. Alan! Great character. Who plays him? I can't wait to find out. He's always been my favourite!

    indeed, he seemed pretty unfair at times, but turns out to be a good guy for sure.

    I would have to say Guppy. He's great! I'll marry him instead of Esther. Do you think he'd mind? I him!

    There are so many good ones to choose from. Just to name my personal favourites....

    1.Smallweed, a humourous character played by a favourite of mine Phil Davis.

    2. Guppy, another humorous character with his status-seeking mother

    3. Esther, the star, is a sweet character played by the young up and comer Anna Maxwell-Martin.

    4. Tulkinghorn the villain played by a pro Charles Dance.

    5. Bucket played by the experienced and talented New Tricks star Alun Armstrong.

    Lady Dedlock of course, but I was surprised that I like Tulkinghorn pretty much, although he is not one of the 'good' characters...

    Lady Dedlock is at first place for me (how obvious is that^^), but I think the whole casting is just fascinating!!I liked even negative characters..to sum up I want to say that everybody were in their places
    I've just finished watching the show and I already miss it..
