Doctor Who has been voted the best British fantasy TV show by readers of SFX magazine, according to a BBC newsreport. "The sci-fi drama, which began in 1963 and became a hit with a new audience when it was recently revived, beat comedy Red Dwarf into second place. The TV version of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy came third, with space series Blake's 7 in fourth. SFX magazine polled 4,000 readers and editor Dave Bradley said Doctor Who was 'a great British institution which has entertained people for generations. There has always been great affection for Doctor Who.'" The top ten are rounded out with The Prisoner (5), Sapphire and Steel (6), Quatermass (7), Ultraviolet (8), The Avengers (9) and Robin of Sherwood (10). Also reported at U.TV.
