20 best tv shows of the last 20 years

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - News -

Will you agree with our list of the best sci- fi telly since SFX’s in­cep­tion in our sec­ond 20/ 20 fea­ture?

SFX has been on hand to chart

the rise and fall of many fan­tas­tic ( and, let’s face it,

not- so- fan­tas­tic – hello Crime Trav­eller, Demons and Krod Mandoon And The Flam­ing Sword Of

Fire) tele­vi­sion shows over the past two decades. We’ve seen science fic­tion shows go from be­ing a niche part of TV pro­gram­ming ( Farscape, Baby­lon 5, Fire­fly) to hit­ting the main­stream so hard we’re still feel­ing the reper­cus­sions ( The X- Files, Lost, Doc­tor Who). We’re sure you have your favourites – although not all of them might be present in this list – but here ( in no par­tic­u­lar or­der) are the 20 shows we be­lieve have de­liv­ered the ab­so­lute best in small- screen fan­tasy from 1995 un­til to­day. Get your box sets ready now…

Doc­tor Who

Our favourite Time Lord’s re­turn to Satur­day night prime- time has been a joy, from Christo­pher Ec­cle­ston telling every­girl Rose Tyler to “Run!” through to Peter Ca­paldi’s Christ­mas Day attack- eye­brows. It’s a de­light to live in a world in which David Ten­nant cried “Al­lons- y!”, Matt Smith waxed lyri­cal about bow ties and John motherf ** king Hurt was the bloody Doc­tor. And on top of all this good­ness, thanks to Rus­sell T Davies and Steven Mof­fat’s life- long love of the show, 21st cen­tury Doc­tor Who feels ut­terly,

un­mis­tak­ably right.
