Since August, the public have been voting on a poll set up by the BFI to find the greatest science-fiction character of all time.
The Doctor beat Alien‘s Ripley to the top spot in the grand finale by a very close 110 votes.
Many other characters from the Doctor Who universe including, Captain Jack, River Song and Sarah Jane Smith made it into the Top 100. BFI also notes that the Master/Missy is the only character on the list to be both male and female.
Full statistics and the top 100 can be found here.
