Russell Lewin
SFX Production Editor

Favourite Film Of 2009
CRANK 2

Honorable mentions:
District 13 (I haven’t got the number wrong – I enjoyed this parkour film more than District 9!), Dorian Gray, 17 Again

Worst Film Of 2009
LESBIAN VAMPIRE KILLERS

Honorable mentions:
Doghouse, Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel, Tormented

Favourite TV Show Of 2009
DOCTOR WHO

I know I shouldn’t because there’ve only been three episodes all year, but – sorry! - I’m going for, as usual, Doctor Who (especially the great “Waters Of Mars”)

Honorable mentions:
Torchwood: Children Of Earth, Ashes To Ashes, Psychoville

Worst TV Show of 2009
LIFE ON MARS US

I could provoke the ire of most SFX readers and say "any American television" show... but I won’t – though I will go for Life On Mars US. Only saw a few eps but looked like a pitiful shadow of its fine Brit parent show

Favourite Book Of 2009
THE ART OF STEVE DITKO

Fabulous book, fabulous vintage stories, fabulous artist. Perfect to curl up with on a cold winter’s night.
