Doctor Who has ousted Star Trek as the favourite cult TV programme, according to a poll of genre fans. It's the first time in 10 years that the Star Trek franchise has been demoted from top berth in an annual poll of Cult TV Festival attendees.

Newcomers to the chart include SF serial Firefly (in with a bolt at number 16), 24 (22), and CSI (25). These mingle with traditional favourites such as Blake's 7 (5), The Avengers (7) and The Prisoner (8).

Saturday (17 June) marked the season finale of the revamped version of Doctor Who, seen by an estimated 6.2m viewers on BBC1, a 41.8 per cent audience share. A BBC spokeswoman said that figures were lower than previous episodes probably because warm weather kept many people away from their TVs. ®
