It’s Sherlock v Doctor Who in our Greatest TV Night Ever poll

Sherlock Holmes and the Doctor go head to head in our 90th anniversary poll, with Downton Abbey, Broadchurch and Pride and Prejudice also on the shortlist


It’s the decision many of you never wanted to make…


Doctor Who is going head to head with Sherlock in our Greatest TV Night Ever poll and it’s time to choose sides…

As part of our 90th birthday celebrations Radio Times is creating a fantasy TV schedule and both BBC1’s Saturday night sensation Doctor Who and much-loved detective reboot Sherlock are on the drama shortlist. But only one can make it onto our ultimate night in.

It’s the Doctor vs Sherlock Holmes. The humanity-saving timelord vs the ultimate crime solver. Matt Smith vs the Cumberbatch. Sonic screwdrivers vs super-quick brain power. The Tardis vs 221b Baker Street. The companions vs Watson. All of space and time vs Holmes’ hunting ground of modern day London.

Impossible, right? Well it may be tough but, sadly, we all have to make a choice. Just go with your heart…

Of course, in the unlikely event that you’re neither a Whovian or a Cumberfan, other options are available.

Hit ITV period drama Downton Abbey and crime sensation Broadchurch have made the list too, as has the 1995 Pride and Prejudice, Brideshead Revisited, EastEnders, Prime Suspect, Bleak House, Coronation Street, Cracker, Edge of Darkness, House of Cards, Inspector Morse, The Jewel in the Crown, Life on Mars, Our Friends in the North, State of Play, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and Upstairs Downstairs.
