David Tennant's incarnation as the Doctor has been voted the coolest TV character beating federal agent Jack Bauer, played in the hit US show 24 by Kiefer Sutherland, to second place.

The poll for radiotimes.com was conducted to find the coolest character - defined as laidback and sexy - on TV.
The Fonz in the Seventies TV show Happy Days, played by Henry Winkler, now 61, came third.

Colin Firth's heart-fluttering turn as Mr Darcy in the TV adaptation of Jane Austen favourite Pride And Prejudice is fourth, followed by The Cat in Eighties comedy series Red Dwarf, brought to life by Danny John-Jules.

The top 10 list was voted for by more than 4,000 TV fans.

Radio Times deputy TV editor David Butcher said: "David Tennant is so hugely popular as the Doctor - he looks like becoming a bit of an icon.
