Vote in the Anglo Fan Favorites Tournament, Women of 2011: Quarterfinals

JK Rowling vs. Catherine Tate

For the first time in the tournament, Doctor Who‘s Karen Gillan is not our top seed. Novelist JK Rowling enters this round looking nearly unbeatable, but Catherine Tate should not be underestimated as a competitor. Anyone who watched Tate’s Donna Noble on DW knows she has bite.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
