If there’s one thing we can say about Radio Times Sci-Fi and Fantasy Champion it’s that the tournament has proven to be one of the most hotly contested in the Radio Times Champion contest.
That”s why we’ve decided to make it even bigger and better this year, with more competitors than ever before and a new qualifying round that really raises the stakes.
In Round 1 our shortlist of competitors is split across four groups – Group A, Group B, Group C and Group D. The 8 contestants with the most votes in each group will qualify for 32 spots in the knock-out stages of the competition. That means the 8 most popular contestants from each group will progress to Round 2, where they’ll go head to head to progress in the competition.
You’ve got 24 hours to see your Champions safely through to Round 2 (the polls will close at 10am BST on Wednesday July 26th) so what are you waiting for? Find them in the groups below, spread the word to your fellow fans on Facebook and Twitter and GET VOTING!
