This week's Radio Times (31 Jan-6 Feb) has the results of a recent poll on their website of "Spookiest TV Of All Time". While Doctor Who doesn't specifically feature, author William Gallagher says in his write-up: "If you're wondering where Doctor Who is, we know it could do spooky, but as it walks away with every poll it figures in, we awarded it a Certificate of Advanced Spookiness and left it off the list to give the others a chance". Meanwhile, Sky TV Magazine has done a similar yet more arbitrary poll of "scary moments", presumably selected by the magazine staff, in which Doctor Who does feature; the entry (which comes in ninth place) consists of: "The bit where the Cybermen come out of the sewers." (It doesn't mention the story -- "The Invasion" -- but at least it's there!) (Thanks to Matthew Harris)
