DWA editor Moray Laing said:
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 enthral children in 2014 as much as they did when they first appeared all those years ago. Thanks to our readers for voting!
