SFX Poll Success for Doctor Who
As you may have already read, the Daleks topped the bill in the Favourite Monsters, Supernatural Beings & Fantasy Creatures category beating Predators, Aliens and Cybermen. But special (and well deserved) praise must go to the Master who came first in the Favourite Villains category. Pictured as his Roger Delgado incarnation, the insane Time Lord beat such favourites as Darth Vader (Star Wars), The Joker (Batman), Lex Luthor (Superman) and Magneto (X Men).
The not-surprising news is that in the Favourite Hero category, our favourite Time Lord the Doctor came in at first place! Hardly surprising as heâ€™s brilliant but itâ€™s worth knowing that he beat other favourites such as Han Solo (Star Wars), Captain Jack Harkness (Torchwood), James T Kirk (Star Trek), Sam Beckett (Quantum Leap) and even Indiana Jones himself!
Although they didnâ€™t top their categories, Catherine Tate as Donna Noble, Billie Piper as Rose Tyler and Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith came in at fourth, eighth and tenth places respectively in the Favourite Heroine category.
So itâ€™s almost confirmed that characters from the Doctor Who universe are clearly the coolest ever (as if we didnâ€™t already know that).
The final round is still to come and so thereâ€™s everything to play for, the winners of each category will now go head to head to win the title ofÂ The Ultimate Best SF or Fantasy Character Ever. The results will be published in accordance with the release of SFXâ€™s 200th issue and wouldnâ€™t it be fantastic if the Doctor was voted the all time best character.
Go to the link now and vote for our favourite Gallifreyan, he deserves to be honoured!
