Billie Piper really has come a long way from her teen pop star days, and even her weekend long pub sessions with ex-husband Chris Evans days, in fact it is fair to say she has matured into one of the biggest, and brightest stars that this country has to offer.

Not only was she a Doctor Who companion (not even the Queen can issue an honour that big), but she is also now starring in an incredibly popular period series, Penny Dreadful, in which she has had rave reviews.

One thing that sci-fans are not lacking in is passion, so it makes perfect sense to us that the scene they have voted in as their favourite of all time, is Billie Piper’s last moments on Doctor Who.

The hit BBC show was always sure to feature highly in the chart, but we were surprised by some other results and the lack thereof. It may surprise you is that not a single Star Trek moment was listed, whilst Star Wars only just made the top five, for scenes which saw Luke Skywalker finding out about his Darth Vader parentage in The Empire Strikes Back.
