Doctor Who Needs You!

To celebrate their 200th issue SFX have launched a campaign to find the 200 best SF characters – so its time to get cracking and vote for your favourite Doctor Who characters.

Vote Doctor Who in the SFX 200To submit simply go to the thread on the SFX forum, comment on the article itself or drop them an email at [email protected] and enter your top 5 characters in SF be they goodies or baddies, alien or earthling- remembering to list which medium they’re from (you don’t want your vote for the Doctor to go to the Doctor from Star Trek: Voyager…)

The thread has already been busy with twenty new members signing up during one day, just to vote.

For the Whoinverse, it’s the Doctor who has most votes though only a few people have singled out one incarnation – the Fourth Doctor Tom Baker.

Other characters who received votes include, Ace, Captain Jack Harkness, Martha Jones, Donna Noble, Davros, Rose Tyler, the Brigadier, the Master and, bizarrely, Baltazar from The Infinite Quest.

The results of the vote will be revealed over five days, in the week commencing 23rd August, the same week SFX#200 goes on sale, on the Wednesday.

So get voting – and feel free to let us know who you will be voting for, be it Doctor Who or any SF character.


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
