The 15 Best Female TV Characters of The Modern Day

Debra Morgan

Debra Morgan (Dexter)

Deb is a character that has received a lot of flack from some Dexter fans but I always loved her. She was good at her job (well, better than anyone else at Miami Metro at least) and cursed a lot, and even if she did get distracted by one-too-many boyfriends over the show’s run, it still never stopped her from being her brother’s best friend, always caring about him and supporting him, even after she discovered about his “Dark Passenger.” And hey, if somehow finding out and then dealing with the fact that your brother is a serial killer doesn’t make you a great character, then what does?
