Those diabolical pepper pots have done it again! In a feat as impressive as stealing the Earth, the Daleks were named the Ultimate Monster from the 2013 Christmas Special, The Time of the Doctor, according the landslide results of a recent BBC Doctor Who Adventures magazine poll (results printed in the brand new issue).
The original Doctor Who monster “exterminated” the competition to take 55% of the readers’ votes. Now for the full results:
1st The Daleks (55%)
2nd The Cybermen (17%)
3rd The Weeping Angels (14%)
4th The Sontarans (10%)
5th The Silence (4%)
The magazine’s editor, Moray Laing, had this to say about the Dalek victory:
It’s official. Daleks rule! Well done to all the Daleks throughout time and space for coming first in our poll. They must be delighted with the result! It’s great to know that these unstoppable creatures continue to scare and enthrall children in 2014 as much as they did when they first appeared all those years ago. Thanks to our readers for voting!
The poll results can be found in issue 339 of Doctor Who Adventures, out now.
So dear reader, do you agree with the poll results? Or do you think another of the episode’s monsters reigned supreme?
