Doctor Who was recently awarded a second Guinness World Record for its consistent high ratings, popularity in downloads and outstanding sales of DVDs, books and other related merchandise. The award was presented to Russell T Davies at the San Diego Comic Con last weekend and the world record shows recognition of Doctor Who as the most successful science fiction series to date. Doctor Who received its first Guinness World Record back in 2006 when the show was recognised as the longest running science fiction show ever made with its first transmission taking place on the twenty third of November in 1963. Fans of the show also managed to gain a world record for the most Daleks gathered in one place a few years ago and the gathering place for the Daleks was the popular Doctor Who Exhibition in Manchester.
