Top 10 Secondary TV Characters who were Primary in our Hearts

   You know them, and love them. The secondary characters from your favorite TV shows of years gone by. They always have an important key role to play, even though they may not be in every episode. They make the primary characters look good, even though they out shine them at times. Without further ado I present my Top Ten list of Secondary characters, in no particular order.


Rockford Files: Angel
Batman: Batgirl
Battlestar Galactica: Boomer
Magnum PI: TC and Rick
Star Trek: Nurse Chappel and Lt. Barclay
Starsky and Hutch: Huggybear
Land of the Lost: Enoch
The Adventures of Wonder Woman: Etta Candy
Babylon 5: Linear and Vir Cotto


Doctor Who: Brigadier General Lethbridge-Stewart

   Each one of these characters would have made an interesting lead / co-lead in their own series. Who wouldn’t have watched a television show called “U.N.I.T.” headed by the Brigadier? Even Etta who could have been a spy in the vein of the Pink Panther where everything she stumbled into just went her way.
