- Unlike Doctor Who Magazine or Doctor Who Adventures, SFX is "100% unofficial and independent".
- This Collection looked at the Best of British "your top 50 greatest UK SF and fantasy shows ever!" and was priced £5.99 (UK) and was packaged o include an 80-page exclusive book The Art of Doctor Who (SFX).
- Of particular note with this release is how 'Doctor Who' fits in to 68 years worth of home-grown cult TV in the UK, its inspirations and the shows it has inspired.
- With the recent return to television screens and Christopher Eccleston's Ninth Doctor being the hit it was, not surprisingly, 'Doctor Who' comes top in the publics vote for number 1. The magazine makes the comment that many voters expressed a vote in favour of the 'classic' series over the 'new' 2005 version but then goes on to point out that had the votes been separated Doctor Who would have held both first and second positions!
- Russell T Davies's early SF series Dark Season came in at a respectable number 16.
- The closing page features the SFX teams 10 worst things about UK telefantasy. Doctor Who again secures the top position "1: Bonnie Langford in Doctor Who – The Horror called Bonnie!"
