In a RadioTimes.com online poll that attracted over 10,000 votes, Doctor Who season 4, David Tennant's last, was voted the best series since the show returned in 2005.
The poll, which ran from 10-20 October, asked fans: What's the best series of Doctor Who? (2005 Revival era) and listed all 13 seasons giving fans a chance to look back on some classic moments and episodes as the show gears up for its 60th-anniversary celebrations.
Season 4 was the clear winner with 24% of votes.
Morgan Jeffery, Executive Editor of RadioTimes.com said:
Despite some stiff competition, Doctor Who's fourth series from 2008 has been voted the best of the modern era in this blockbuster poll, which pulled in votes from thousands of fans.
Starring David Tennant as the ever-popular Tenth Doctor and Catherine Tate as the fiery and fantastic Donna Noble, this series was a perfect showcase of everything the show can do, from the larks of Partners in Crime to the chills of Midnight and the blockbuster thrills of two-part finale The Stolen Earth / Journey's End.
It's also a result that bodes well for the programme's imminent 60th anniversary celebrations, which will see award-winning writer/producer Russell T Davies resume his showrunner mantle and Tennant and Tate both returning for new adventures in time and space.
