Here at the Examiner, we love Doctor Who.

So much so, that when children at Hade Edge Junior and Infant School told us they were enjoying an extra-terrestrial sci-fi themed week, we were jealous.

Then we started talking about our favourite Doctor Who villains over the years.

So take a look at our top ten list of Doctor Who foes below - complete with videos.

These are, by no means, in order of fear factor.

Also take a look at our Doctor Who down the years gallery below

 

The Weeping Angels

The Weeping Angels are 'quantum locked' and can only move when you're not looking at them. But eventually you'll have to blink. And when you do, they'll get you.

 

The Zygons

The Zygons have shape-shifting abilities, allowing them to replicate the appearance of another being, but they must keep the subject alive in order to use its body print.

Davros

Not only is Davros the creator of the Daleks, which he did so he could become ruler of the Universe, he once tried to eradicate the whole of reality. Not a nice chap.

 

The Daleks

Without doubt, the classic Doctor Who villain. All they feel is hate. They want to rule the universe by exterminating everything in their path with their lethal 'death ray' gun - don't get in their way.

The Cybermen

Like the Daleks, the Cybermen have been hounding the Doctor for decades. They want to transform the human race into emotionless steel bots. Beware.

The Silence

Taking the form of a stereotypical extra-terrestrial - large heads and bulging eyes - they have the ability to make you forget you ever saw them. Try forgetting this scary video.

 

The Master

The Master has taken many forms over the years from his first appearance played by Roger Delgado to John Simm's terrifying incarnation. He's a Time Lord with the same powers as the Doctor - except he's mad and evil. Not a great combination.

The Rani

The Rani is a renegade Time Lady and an evil scientific genius, whose villainy comes not from the usual variety of lust for power, but from a mindset that treats everything as secondary to her research. 

The Sontarans

The Sontarans are a race of humanoids with a stocky build, greenish brown skin, and a distinctive dome-shaped head. They only have three fingers on each hand and their special muscles are designed for load-bearing rather than leverage, because of the significant amount of gravity on their home planet of Sontar.

The Vashta Nerada

Vashta Nerada - which literally means "the shadows that melt the flesh" - are microscopic swarm creatures which, when present in a high enough concentration, are totally indistinguishable from shadows. They are described as the "piranhas of the air".
