Monster Hit

Monster Hit

Weeping Angels beat the Daleks in Scariest Monster Poll.

The Weeping Angels have been voted this year's Scariest Monsters in a poll of over 2,000 Doctor Who Adventures readers.

Although the Daleks will always be popular, it was the stone statues that had the Doctor Who Adventures readers (and their parents) diving behind the sofa.

A massive 55 per cent of the votes went to the angels - created by Steven Moffat for his Blink episode. The Master, played by John Simm, was runner-up with with 15 percent of the votes. The Daleks came in 3rd with 4 per cent.

"The Weeping Angels are a fantastic addition to the long list of scary monsters in Doctor Who," said Moray Laing, Editor of Doctor Who Adventures says. "Children will definitely remember being scared by them for years to come. Also, the idea that you could possibly escape a creature by not blinking is inspired... but it's not as easy as it sounds! The Daleks usually come top of every monster poll - so the Weeping Angels should be proud of their achievement! I wonder what the Daleks would say to the news?"

Dalek Caan was unavailable for comment.

The new issue of Doctor Who Adventures, recently named as the UK's fastest growing consumer magazine, featuring more info on the Weeping Angels, is out on 13th September.
