SF is not all cold ideas and even colder exo-skeletons; sometimes it tugs at our heartstrings reducing even the nerdiest of nerds into a sobbing, dribbling wreck.
Celebrating the 31 Best SF Tearjerkers SFX have broken out the kleenexÂ and shared with us some ofÂ SF’s most emotionally gruelling moments.
With four entries into the chart anyone would think Doctor Who was a cold, manipulative fiend- luring us in with promises of a brand new adventure in time and space and then living us hugging the arm of the sofa, rocking back and forth as we recover from such moments as Adric’s death (hurrah!) in Earthshock, Rose’s goodbye in Doomsday (sniff) and:
‘I don’t want to go.’
Also included in the weepy list are two entries from Torchwood including the contentious death of Ianto Jones (he’s dead – get over it!)
