But latter-day 'Buffy' characters fare well, too

LOS ANGELES

In a poll commissioned by the science fiction magazine SFX to determine the top 10 sci fi characters of all time, cult hit Buffy. the Vampire Slayer made an impressive showing, with Spike, Willow, Angel and Buffy herself taking four of the slots.

Three of the remaining six spots were also taken by TV characters, including Farscape's John Crichton and Aeryn Sun.

However, the top spot went to Dr. Who, the eccentric Brit who traveled through time and space in the guise of several actors over the course of 26 years from 1963 to '89.

The Top 10 Sci Fi Characters of All Time, in order, is as follows:

1. Doctor Who (Doctor Who)

2. Spike (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

3. Buffy Summers (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

4. John Crichton (Farscape)

5. Aeryn Sun (Farscape)

6. Han Solo (the Star Wars saga)

7. Willow Rosenberg (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

8. Darth Vader (the Star Wars saga)

9. Angel (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

10. Gandalf (Lord of the Rings)
