Posted without commentary, Carrie Frye at the Awl has compiled a list of 111 Male Characters Of British Literature, In Order Of Bangability. But of course British literature is not all Shakespeare and Jane Austin, so the author must tackle questions such as, Who would you rather do: Frankenstein or Uriah Heep? (Numbers 111 and 110 respectively!) Here’s how some other favorites fared:

96. Dr. Watson (”A Study In Scarlet”)
95. Willy Wonka (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)

78. Leopold Bloom (Ulysses)

63. Romeo (Romeo and Juliet)
