Voting is officially open in Round 1 of our TV Champion showdown.


You, the fans, have all the power as 16 shows battle it out for the title of Sci-Fi and Fantasy Champion.

From Sci-Fi titans like Doctor Who and Star Trek to Fantasy favourites such as Stranger Things and A Discovery of Witches (and let's not forget the superhero titles), it's time to rally the troops and get voting to put your favourite through to Round 2 – the Quarter-Final.

It's all to play for and remember, this vote is fandom v fandom, with unlimited votes meaning it really is the most passionate fans who emerge victorious. Think of it like a tug of war – stop voting, and your favourite show might fall behind.

Voting closes at 5pm BST today so you only have a matter of hours in which to ensure your pick stays top in their respective head-to-head.

With unlimited votes, you can refresh this page and vote again as many times as you want! So what are you waiting for?

First up it's Stranger Things v The Lazarus Project.

Next we have The Umbrella Academy v Moon Knight.

Then we have Foundation v A Discovery of Witches. Who will you put through to the Quarter-Final?

The Boys v Obi-Wan Kenobi should be an interesting showdown.

And the battle between two huge and passionate fandoms when it comes to this head-to-head: Doctor Who v Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.

Who will emerge victorious: Arcane or Outlander?

And who will you put through to the next round: Loki or Severance?

Finally, we have a big one: Ms. Marvel v The Witcher.

If you want the best chance of keeping your favourite in the running, you'll need to spread the word and get your fellow fans involved.

You can join in on social media by following @RadioTimes on Twitter and Instagram, and tweeting along with the hashtag #TVChampion.

The Quarter-Final takes place tomorrow – with voting opening at 12pm and closing at 5pm once again – so don't forget to come back then and back your pick to get them through to Wednesday's Semi-Final. Then it's on to Thursday's grand Final, where you will crown your ultimate Sci-Fi and Fantasy Champion.
