- Buffy the vampire slayer,
- Det. Supt. Jane Tennison (Helen Mirren) from the English "Prime Suspect" series is shows.
- Detective Jane Timoney (played by Maria Bello) from the American version of "Prime Suspect" ( boy didI get pissed off when that one got canceled.. I truly thought Bello was doing a better job with her role that anybody at that time).
- both Cagney and Lacey from the show of the same name.
- Colleen McMurphy from "China Beach"
- Queen Mary Stuart in "Reign"
Every one of the "Birds If Prey" (I'm one of the few who loved to watch it,)
- and just for a joke , Murphy Brown And Roseanne.

1. I have added Buffy SummersJane Tennison,  Detective JaneTimoney Colleen McMurphy

2. Is this the character page of Queen Mary Stuart in "Reign". Just confirming.
http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0395158/?ref_=tt_cl_t1

3. Can Cagney and Lacey be considered as protagonists? I mean, even while listing from the comedy shows, I didn't add Two Broke Girls, Broad City, Gilmore Girls for the same reason.

Section 2, the answer is yes.
Section 3, yes they both are since they act as a team solving police cases. I can see why you just want one per show.

Suggestion, if you need space, axe "Detective Jane Timoney". Why? The show was canceled after 12 episodes of it's first season and didn't run it's full 22 to 24 episode run of an American TV season.
I suggest you have a multiple seasons requirement or (since shows from Britain and Canada run lower episodes per season) a minimum episode count so that the show ran long enough for people to remember it. I'm trying to create a tv poll that requires both a multiple seasons run and a 25 episode count that evens the playing field between all countries.

I'm probably going to be accused of being biased here, but I don't care.  I'm going with "Sarah Manning(Tatiana Maslany)" from "Orphan Black(2013-2017)".  Now, can anyone argue against my selection?

Akash Charudatta Deshpande,

Jen's poll is similar. However her poll focuses on the show, whereas your poll focuses on the female protagonist from a drama series. I believe they are different enough not to be a problem.

By the way, please capitalize "from" in your title; change the title to:
Best Female Protagonist From a Drama Series
