If every Phyllis Logan fan on tumblr votes in the Radio Times poll 5 times, Mrs. Hughes could easily overtake the two male characters who are currently in 1st and 2nd place. Her character is one of the few females on a popular television show that is allowed to be both independent and caring. Help send the message that we want to see more complex female characters in the media. More women over 40 who LOOK like they’re over 40. More women who are allowed to be plural. More women who stand toe to toe with male characters, working with them without falling back on tropes.
More characters like Mrs. Hughes open up the doors for diversity of age and color for all female actors.
Signal boost, this is a thing I support.
Vote ladies! Our Mrs. Hughes needs us :) xo
