Following the Radio Times Fifth Doctor poll, we now have the results from the Sixth Doctor poll. There’s an obvious classic, and a few I wouldn’t have chosen myself. SPOILER — my favourite (possibly) isn’t included. Read the results after the break…
And the most voted for main range titles are…
The results are in for the second of Radiotimes.com’s Doctor Who – The Monthly Adventures polls, in which Big Finish listeners (and Radio Times readers) decide which are their favourite episodes from each Doctor featured in the range.
This week, fans voted for their favourite Sixth Doctor titles, with the winners as follows, and one lucky penguin coming out on top:

Executive Editor of RadioTimes.com Morgan Jeffrey said: “The vote to end all votes continues! With Big Finish fans having flocked to RadioTimes.com and voted in their thousands to help crown the greatest Fifth and Sixth Doctor releases from across 22 years of the Monthly Adventures, our attentions now turn to the Seventh Doctor.
“Once again, fans are spoilt for choice, with 78 releases from The Sirens of Time to The Grey Man of the Mountain pairing Sylvester McCoy’s Time Lord with Ace, Mel, Hex and more, and pitting him against Daleks, Cybermen and the Master – but which story will come out on top?”
Voting begins for the Seventh Doctor’s adventures on Tuesday 18th May at 3pm and closes on Friday 21st May at 2pm, with the winning adventures and final poll announced on Tuesday 25th May.
