What do you mean you don't agree?

Are you mad? Just look at the evidence...

10 reasons why Doctor Who is better than all the Star Trek series put together!

1 DW killed off Adric, Wesley Crusher still lives

2 The lead character in DW doesn't try to snog everything in a skirt

3 DW never had a crappy 'animated' series

4 Lead actor in DW never wore a wig or a girdle

5 DW lasted 26 years and a bit, all the Trek series put together still don't come near that

6 No monsters in DW ever wore a Mars bar on their head

7 The Cybermen came years before the Borg

8 Trek has never had a 3D episode

9 DW didn't over-do the spin-offs. It only ever had one, and that was only one episode

10 It just is!!!

And 10 reasons why Doctor Who is better than The X Files...

1 The lead actors in DW went to drama school

2 DW has original ideas of its own

3 Aliens definitely do exist in DW so we don't waste every other episode trying to prove/disprove the theory

4 None of the lead characters in DW catch fatal diseases that go on forever

5 X Files takes itself far too seriously and would never have a Horns of Nimon type story

6 DW went big screen within a couple of years of being broadcast

7 DW characters are sensible enough to switch the light on before entering a room

8 None of the lead characters in DW smoke

9 DW had alien abductions before the X Files ever thought of the idea

10 X Files has never had the honour of being on a Weetabix commercial
