  • Of particular note with this release is how 'Doctor Who' fits in to 68 years worth of home-grown cult TV in the UK, its inspirations and the shows it has inspired.
  • With the recent return to television screens and Christopher Eccleston's Ninth Doctor being the hit it was, not surprisingly, 'Doctor Who' comes top in the publics vote for number 1. The magazine makes the comment that many voters expressed a vote in favour of the 'classic' series over the 'new' 2005 version but then goes on to point out that had the votes been separated Doctor Who would have held both first and second positions!
  • Russell T Davies's early SF series Dark Season came in at a respectable number 16.
