Scariest Doctor Who Monsters / Aliens


The Top Ten

1 Weeping Angels Weeping Angels

Umm duhhh...they are kinda scary and even though they don't give me nightmares or anything (which none of the others do anyway) they are creepy to watch and the episodes with them in them are really chilling. Also, angels can be on video and when the person watching it looks away they would have moved and the person would look way again and it would move...and not long later they would turn around and there was a weeping angel behind them. Also, If you are aware of an angel near you, and they are in a different room with no one in there, as soon as you can't see them its scary as you know that within seconds they will be inside of your room. I mean you can close one eye and open it and keep doing that with the opposite eye but if it is outside your door and you are unable to see it it will probably come in to your room anyway. They have been known to turn people back in time and imagine if like rory did, you saw yourself die and how scary that must have been.

My favorite villain even though they... SPOILERS! I mean I think their's scarier like the headless monks but I NEEDED to vote for Weeping angels!

Don't blink

Must I explain?

2 Cybermen Cybermen

Scarier than normal cyber men...they are so creepy looking. They are people who were gradually being turned into metal and becoming cybermen. All of them were once humans.Apparently the process was painful and ill or injured people were made into them so that they were automatically given all the things they need to keep them alive. Basically their suits were controlling them they started taking random people and turning them into cybermen. They started attacking others humans. It was creepy.

Although it may sound ironic, these are the scariest because they DON'T kill you, but turn you (painfully) into them.

These guys made me stop watching doctor who when I was little because I was so terrified.

3 Daleks Daleks The Daleks are a fictional extraterrestrial race of mutants principally portrayed in the British science fiction television programme Doctor Who.

The last episode with the Daleks in it showed you that just one Dalek is enough to destroy the human race.


Weeping angels are not scary just close one eye open it, and close the other open it and ots basically
Like blinking and it still can't do anything

4 The Silence

You could be reading this list...then look behind you...only to find one of these guys...and then forget it when you look back at this list.

Just imagine if the silence were on earth. One could be watching you while you sleep. One could be watching you right now. And if you saw it, you would forget it exists then second you look away.

I coudn't sleep because of them!

Crepy! The cybermen and daleks are kinda stupid and the vampires are strange, weepingangels, creepy, but the worst is the silense, I imagine a silence with a perception filter... Oh my god that iss scary. The ultamate assassin.

6 Vampire

I really hate and I am scared of vampires. I don't want them to exist in real life. - DinoLover4242

7 Satan (The Beast)
8 The Empty Child

Stopped watching Doctor who for awhile after this episode, even looking at pictures of the empty child, still scares me today

The way that the Empty Child says "Are you my mummy? " just chills me to the bone. And let's not forget that the old guy's transformation is one of the most terrifying scenes of that episode. I say that this thing is the second scariest monster in Dr. Who.

"Are you my mummy? "

Mummy, mummy, are you my mummy?

There's a reason people have got this irrational fear of the dark - except it isn't irrational.

It's the dark. Literally the dark will eat you.
That was this entire episode.

10 Werewolf

The Newcomers

? The Ravenous
? The Meem

The Contenders

11 The Flood

I watched this when I was ten, and I still have nightmares about it. The flood are so creepy, and the cracks in their mouth and eyes with just a pupil is so terrifying.

The idea that a single drop of water could kill you and turn into a body for a malevolent creature oozing deadly water is terrifying. And the designs are chilling to the bone with cracks in their mouth and white eyes.

When I first watched waters of mars I wouldn't go near water for the rest of the day and even the day after that I was still not very happy about it

The fact that this is number 12 baffles me, it should be in top 5.

12 The Midnight Entity

Creepy and nearly caused The Doctor to die


The thing that makes this monster the scariest is that it doesn't kill you. It makes your friends kill you. It doesn't need to be deadly, it just needs the darkness of humanity. THAT'S terrifying.

It looks for the cleverest person and steals their voice and turns friendships against them. This was one of the few monsters who scared The Doctor and almost killed him by stealing his voice. We know nothing about it at all and it could still be alive out there. Someone somewhere is being copied.
