I had created a similar poll a number of years ago until the database malfunctions removed it from the board.

My favorite is Theo Kojak - Who loves ya baby!

PS: I may have left more notable names off the list.  Each of those TV detectives was on the air for at least 5 seasons.

I could've included Lenny Briscoe, Goren and others; I didn't want the poll to be too unwieldy.   laugh

John Munch is more a Baltimore detective than a NY detective...

And, really, Stabler and Benson, but no Lennie Briscoe?

Munch started out as a Baltimore detective and moved to NYC. 

I could've included Odafin Tutuola (played by Ice-T) - just didn't want an unwieldy poll.

If you're talking L&O SVU two characters who deserve honorable mention are Dr Huang and Dr. Warner.

Yes, he's from London, but his character is a consultant detective for NYC.  And Watson is played by Lucy Liu and does a fabulous job.  I love the twist they've taken.  It isn't classic Sherlock Holmes, but it is. . .he's the classic character, everything else has been tweaked for modern day.

John Munch.  He kept a level head during stressful situations.

I had to go "other" - Lennie Briscoe was missing, Andy Sipowicz and Bobby Simone ought to have been listed together, and the same for Olivia and Eliot = and, somehow, I ought to have been able to vote for all of those.

Many years,

Neil
