    psychopath
    ˈsʌɪkəpaθ/
    noun

    'A person suffering from chronic mental disorder with abnormal or violent social behaviour'.


    It's time to vote for your Top 5 favourite soap psychos. Lots of soap characters went a bit loopy, but as the definition above describes, we're looking for those that became unhinged and dangerous.

    To me it looked as if she settled the score, the way mafiosi do, instead of a deranged person who kills because he/she feels there's no alternative.
    But I guess there's a sociopath in every criminal.

    I've chosen not to go with the episodic antagonists such as Peyton Allan - who didn't get what he came to Southfork for - or Knots Landing's Mrs Handleman - one of soap's earliest stalkers. Which leaves...

    1. Joshua Rush [Knots Landing]
    2. Chip Roberts [Knots Landing]
    3. Jill Bennett [Knots Landing]
    4. Jessica Montford [Dallas]
    5. Angelica Nero [Dallas]



    Special mention:

    Claudia Blaisdel [Dynasty]
    This was a fine line for me. That incident with the loaded gun ticks the box of "abnormal or violent social behaviour", but overall she was more a victim of circumstance.

    Claudia Whittaker [Knots Landing]
    Another fine line. The pretended poison in the food; the liver-stealing and the framing of her own son almost clinched it. But she was too well fleshed-out and I understood her motives. She came close to the line, in my opinion, but never quite crossed it.


    Apologies to Julia Cumson fans. I suspect she'd have made my list had I got round to watching Falcon Crest.




    Oh yes! If we were including the Nineties shows Kim would have been my top choice.

    Of course but I didn't wanna go there because people would expect it of me. But yeah, she's a psycho bitch from hell. Look at her. Pure Evil. Narcissistic tramp.

    No, she really wasn't. Maybe slightly trampy. Otherwise, Mandy was just a girl who had an affair with a man who kept insisting he was about to leave his wife, and who eventually did.

    Your description, however, does more closely fit Sue Ellen at certain phases of her development, which Linda Gray openly conceded back in the '80s.
