TV’s Best Female Villains

There are a lot of ingredients that make good TV and a scheming cow is definitely top of my list. We have never had so much viewing choice with Netflix’s increasing popularity, people streaming US shows and more TV channels being added by the week. I find less and less shows are relying on the TV bitch to bring in ratings. We need this to change. I am going to pay homage to some of the best female TV villains over the years to whet your appetite.

Tanya Turner Footballers’ Wives

Tanya is my favourite TV bitch. Married three times with each of her husbands having an untimely end. Cold and ruthless she made for great TV viewing.

Janine Butcher Eastenders

Janine is Walford’s best bitch. Over the years she has turned to prostitution, drugs, married for money, killed two husbands, had affairs and ruined lives. Just your typical soap bitch I guess.

Victoria Grayson Revenge

Victoria is the queen of plotting. She will stop at nothing to protect her family and social status. She is not afraid to get blood on her hands having killed adversaries who got in her way. This is all done while looking pristine in an expensive bandage dress.

Alexis Carrington Colby Dynasty

Alexis was the original queen bitch on TV. Always seen swigging out of a drink, ciggie in hand and massive shoulder pads. She was the ultimate GAL.

Tracy Barlow Coronation Street

Tracy brings the right amount of bitch to the cobbles. From murder to selling her baby there is not much that she wouldn’t do. She did seem to have a soft spot for her late gran Blanche – who was also well able to give anyone a good tongue lashing.

Shell Dockley Bad Girls

Shell was top dog at Larkhall Prison which is no mean feat. She is probably the most unhinged on this list. She had affairs with prison officers and eventually stabbed one of them, Fenner, to death. Don’t mess with Shell.
