Match 7 - Pamela - After JR, Cliff and Pam are my favourite characters so deciding was more difficult than for the JR versus Sue Ellen match. I think Pam's role was arguably the most important in the whole series as she was the link between the two families. Pam also featured in many of my all time favourite Dallas scenes (the Thanksgiving Square break up with Bobby, finding out that Gerald Kane was paid to deceive her by JR, her reconciliation with Bobby before his 'death', her joy at thinking Bobby brought Christopher to Southfork to be their child etc.) I also think her character was always interesting whereas in the final seasons, Cliff was written more and more like a caricature of who he used to be. After Pam was written out, the series went down the toilet which was an indicator of how crucial she was to the success of the show. On balance, Pam scores a points victory over Cliff. Match 8 - Jock - Although I liked Clayton more than Jock, the senior Ewing was such a great character, strong, arrogant and sometimes cruel but also with a loving and caring side too. Multi-dimensional and always interesting, Jock lands a knockout punch on Digger.
