The Daleks (BBC)

British sci-fi magazine SFX has published the results of a poll asking readers to name the greatest monsters in science fiction.

The results are interesting, to say the least. The list starts off OK, with the Daleks from Doctor Who leading the pack. But Lorne the demon lounge singer from Angel as No. 2? And Aslan, from The Chronicles of Narnia, a monster?

Looks like they have some strange ideas of what constitutes a monster across the pond. Take a look at the list and sound off in the comments section below!
