Features Top 10 Classic Doctor Who villains Published 2 years ago on August 24, 2016 As much as we love new Doctor Who it’s the classic series return to whenever we think about classic villains associated with the show. So it’s time to face our fears and look back on the top ten villains who made original Who so glorious. At 10: The Autons Terrifying plastic mannequins! Well, they didn’t look as absurd as the Yeti, at least. And they certainly deserve a place here as the first Doctor Who villains we saw in colour. At 9: The Rani Doctor Who’s resident femme fatale, the Rani deserves our fury (for causing the Sixth Doctor’s regeneration) and our sympathy (for having to put up with the Seventh Doctor’s ‘hilarious’ wackiness). At 8: The Black Guardian He’s an incredibly powerful, incredibly evil demi-god who almost manipulates Turlough into killing the Doctor. He also has a really, really bad haircut. At 7: Borusa Corrupt Time Lord and Russ Abbot lookalike whose need for immortality drove him to kidnapping the first five Doctors. He also enjoyed playing with his very own set of Doctor Who toy figures. Did he get those from eBay? At 6: The Sontarans Yes, they’re ceaselessly vicious and bent on killing everything, but the scariest thing about your average Sontaran is his head, which is the shape and hue of a giant potato. At 5: Davros You had to feel sorry for dour old Davros. Unbearably ugly and unable to walk, the father of the Daleks had to put up with his ungrateful children trying to kill him all the time. That, and the Sixth Doctor’s jokes. At 4: Raston Warrior Robot His efficient execution of the Cybermen was a highlight of ‘The Five Doctors’. Never mind that he looked like a weedy man in a fencing outfit; when this Robot massacres things, he does it with style. At 3: The Cybermen Humourless, lumbering and a bit thick, the charisma-free Cybermen did at least have great strength on their side. And were they the inspiration for Star Trek’s Borg? At 2: The Master Ah, the Moriarty to the Doctor’s Holmes. By turns a gentleman rogue and cackling psychopath, he’d probably be quite insulted to know he wasn’t the number one villain. But let’s face it: the top spot was only ever going to go to… At 1: The Daleks Metal-clad mutants, remorseless killers, British institution. Come in a variety of exciting colours. Tend to repeat themselves a lot. Undisputed champions of intergalactic villainy. Look a bit like dustbins.
