doctor who is tops

The character of Doctor Who has been named the greatest science fiction character of all time, according to a poll taken by British genre magazine SFX. Rounding out the top ten characters are Spike, Buffy and Willow from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," John Crichton and Aeryn Sun from "Farscape," Han Solo and Darth Vader of the "Star Wars" saga, Angel from the Buffy spinoff "Angel" and Gandalf of "Lord of the Rings". Said SFX editor Dave Golder to BBC News, "It just goes to prove that there is a certain magic to the character and the idea of the face-changing Doctor which strikes a chord with the public's imagination."
