WEEPING ANGELS EXTERMINATE THE DALEKS AS SCARIEST DOCTOR WHO MONSTER

The chilling Weeping Angels have outblinked the Daleks as the scariest Doctor Who monster of all time, according to a poll of young Doctor Who fans. Despite the scary statues only appearing in a single episode of the TV series, 2 out of 5 readers of Doctor Who Adventures magazine voted the Weeping Angels the monster they’re most likely to dive behind the sofa at the sight of. This is despite the reemergence of old foes the Daleks and the Cybermen in more recent episodes.

The poll, conducted by Doctor Who Adventures magazine to coincide with the upcoming Easter special of the BBC programme, saw the frightening Weeping Angels secure 41% of reader votes with the Daleks coming in second with 22% of votes, followed third by the Cybermen with 8% of the votes.

Perhaps unsurprisingly the younger generation of Doctor Who fans opted for David Tennant as their favourite Doctor. Having made his debut in Christmas 2005 he received an incredible 86% of votes.

Readers voted Tennant’s predecessor Christopher Eccleston into second place with 12% of votes followed closely by Tom Baker with 9% of votes.

Moray Laing, Editor, Doctor Who Adventures says, “The Weeping Angels frightened loads of adults when they appeared in Doctor Who, so I’m not surprised our readers find them scary. Although they only cropped up once in the series a couple of years ago, these silent creatures made a huge impression on children. They really are the stuff of nightmares”.

“And congratulations to David Tennant for winning our favourite Doctor poll – he’s a fantastic Doctor, brilliant actor and great role model for children. Doctor Who Adventures readers can hardly wait for his next special this Easter!”
