The greatest TV characters are the ones you never see, Mrs. Columbo and "Carlton, your doorman" (Rhoda).

Frasier, I think. Although, Hannah Horvath in ‘Girls’ is an unholy favourite, essentially because she’s pretty appalling.

Oh no! Hang on; it has to be Malcolm Tucker from ‘The Thick Of It’. A hero for our times, surely...
