The Time Lord has been confronted by many enemies during his adventures, including Cybermen, Daleks and Zygons, and this programme aims to shed light on why some of these creatures still inspire awe in members of the public. The first of three compilations looks at the monsters and villains in places 10 to seven, which make an appearance in four back-to-back Doctor Who episodes. Presented by Joel Dommett.

Part 2 (16 November at 8pm on BBC3) – With the long-anticipated 50th anniversary now just a week away, the countdown of the sci-fi show’s 10 most popular antagonists continues. Monsters from the classic era line up alongside aliens and ne’er-do-wells from 2005 onwards as comedian Joel Dommett reveals which of the Doctor’s many nemeses have been ranked six to four in the public vote.

Part 3 (17 November at 7.30pm on BBC3) – The countdown draws to a close as comedian Joel Dommett reveals which of the show’s impressive roster of enemies have been voted the top three. Among the villains expected to place highly on the list are the ancient Earth-dwelling Silurians, the legions of the Ood and the memory-bending assassins the Silence, along with the cold, calculating Cybermen, the hateful mutant Daleks and the Master, the Doctor’s nihilistic Time Lord nemesis.
