    1. Pamela Barnes/Ewing. No Pam, no Dallas.
    2. Katherine Wentworth. A character never fully understood but pivotal in one of the most iconic moments in Dallas history when Pam screamed over Bobby in that driveway.
    3. Jock Ewing. I've never known another character to have such a lasting effect on a television series, long after his death.

    1. Ray
    The forth son.

    2. Lucy
    In some ways she was like a Ewing daughter more than a grand daughter. Also the character did well in the Dallas world cup.

    3. Pam
    Wihout her the Ewing-Barnes fued made no sense.

    2017 I think (unless it is 2016)
    1.Pam--though the actress was taking self-involved to new levels in every interview, Bobby and Pam was the core of the show's original drive
    2.Cliff--obviously needed to try his Scooby Doo attempts to get J.R.

    Mr Torrence, you still have a third vote if you want to use it, although your other 2 votes will still be valid if you chose not to.

    Thank you. I was unsure of whether to include Rebecca or Katherine Wentworth, but in the end I decided to leave it to just the two basic ones.

    But but but... Scooby was always successful. I'd more compare Cliff to Wile Coyote.

    Pam is recovering after her heated discussion with JR in the barn. She fell from the hayloft and sadly lost her baby. Bobby is watching on as Jock speaks to her, while she is in bed, (a scene from the mini-series, DVD-1, 1978):


    "Little lady us Ewings are not an easy family to get on with, as you've found out. We've had our own way for so long that maybe it stood in the way of us being just people. I know you have no reason to really care but I want to keep my family together."

    The vote for the Dallas qualifying round has now closed. Fifteen of us voted in total for 9 different characters. The results are as follows (3 points were given to first preferences, 2 points to second preferences and 1 point to third preferences):

    Pam: 31
    Cliff: 24
    Jock: 10
    Katherine: 9
    Ray: 6
    John Ross: 3
    Lucy: 2
    Donna: 2
    Afton: 1


    The following 2 characters therefore qualify for the knock out round of the World Cup.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    The next runner up was Jock Ewing who will now go through to join characters from the other soaps in a vote for a final chance to qualify.

    Thank you everyone who voted in this round.

    Details of the next vote (the Dynasty Qualification Round) will be posted later today.

    To clarify what this round is about.

    Blake, Krystle, Alexis and Fallon were chosen to automatically qualify for the knockout round of the contest. This round is to select 2 more Dynasty characters to join them in the next round.

    Please select the THREE additional Dynasty characters you would like be part of the World Cup. List your choices in order of preference. You can give reasons for your vote which might help others with their choices but this is entirely optional, it's absolutely fine just to give the names.

    As before, the top 2 characters of all the votes will go through to the next round and the character in third place will join characters from the other soaps in a final vote off for the remaining 2 places in the knock out rounds.

    For the purpose of this game, characters will be categorised according to the soap in which they appeared in the most. Therefore Jeff Colby and Fallon Carrington will only be eligible to play as Dynasty characters whereas Sable, Jason, Monica, etc. will only be considered as characters from The Colbys even though they all appeared in both soaps.

    Remember this is a game about the 80s prime time soaps so please do not consider characters as they appeared in the 2017 reboot series.

    This week's vote will end at midnight on Sunday 12th August 2018.

    My votes:

    1. Steven Carrington (a key character, involved in so many important storylines, deserves to be in the next round).
    2. Jeff Colby (ditto).
    3. Dominique Deveraux (loved that she was a strong, female, bitchy rival to Alexis).
