Daleks Top Monster Poll!

They’ve take on all the competition, exterminated them if you will and now resting proudly on a plinth of their fallen foes; ladies and gentlemen the greatest monsters in Sci-Fi film and television history – the Daleks!

Doctor Who monsters the Daleks won SFX PollThe pepperpot despots tore Angels‘ Lorne (Andy Hallett) assunder to claim their prize in the SFX poll.

They also retained the bragging rights over their rivals the Cybermen, who bruised and bloodied, only survived long enough to be classified 13th. Among those that beat the Cybermen were Gizmo from the Gremlins franchise (who came 7th) by technical knock-out.

Other victims included the titular Aliens from the Alien films (who came 3rd), Gollum from The Lord of the Rings (who came 5th) and the Borg from Star Trek (who assimilated the whole group until they were penalised by judges and dropped down to 11th).

All their next of kin have been notified.

Having won their catagory, the Daleks now go on to face the winners of 9 other catagories in a vote-off, where you, yes you, will be asked to vote in The Ultimate Best SF or Fantasy Character Ever poll in celebration of SFX’s 200th issue which hits the shops next Wednesday.

You can vote by squashing this word and poking it with your arrow key.

Doctor Who will return to BBC 1 this Christmas for a one off special followed by the new series in 2011.

About the Author


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.
