Daleks Defeated by Weeping Angels!

Bad news for the Daleks – they’ve been voted into second place in a new Radio Times poll of over 10,000 Doctor Who fans, replaced in Whovian’s affections by the Weeping Angels…

With more than 10,000 fans voting in the RadioTimes.com poll, nearly half (49.4 per cent) chose the Angels as their favourite monsters. Classic Who adversaries the Daleks were in second place with 17 per cent of the vote, followed by another Moffat creation, The Silence, in third place with almost 12 per cent.

Elsehwhere, the Doctor’s fellow Time Lord, the Master, and Moffat’s microscopic swarm The Vashta Nerada, were in fourth and fifth place, respectively, with the Cybermen, Davros, the Zygons, the Ice Warriors and the Sontarans completing the top ten.

The greatest Doctor Who monsters of all time

  1. The Weeping Angels (49.4%)
  2. The Daleks (17%)
  3. The Silence (11.84%)
  4. The Master (8.66%)
  5. The Vashta Nerada (6.81%)
  6. The Cybermen (2.53%)
  7. Davros (2.2%)
  8. The Zygons (0.69%)
  9. The Ice Warriors (0.54%)
  10. The Sontarans (0.33%)

Tim Glanfield  is the editor at RadioTimes.com:

“The Daleks had generations of children cowering behind the sofa in the past, but our poll shows Steven Moffat’s terrifying Weeping Angels are the stuff of modern nightmares – remember, don’t blink!.”

Here at Kasterborous, we’re confident that a similar poll conducted in Doctor Who Magazine might even things out a bit. It’s all about who is voting, you see…
