Not quite a cop, but I'm a massive fan of Jonny Lee Miller's Sherlock.

I like Elementary a lot as well, really good show. I prefer it to the English one, though both have their merits. I like Columbo too, great character.

@Jugula;
I loved the first three seasons of NYPD Blue, but lost interest during the fourth, I think. I don't think I can say any one of the detectives was my favourite cop of all shows, but I certainly fancied a couple of them- Janice Licalsi in the first season, played by Amy Brenneman, and Diane Russell, played by Kim Delaney. I think my favourite cop of the whole series was Bobby Simone; when he died I think I lost a lot of interest. He and Sipowicz were great, though the latter's repeated troubles and screw ups in his personal life wound me up a bit sometimes. I remember when it first aired and the novel camera technique was mocked on sketch shows. I watched the first 3 seasons on DVD a few years ago, and it's stood the test of time faultlessly, unlike a lot of 90s tv.

If I had to plump for one tv detective, I think it would be Morse (John Thaw).
