Doctor Who’s adversaries have instilled fear in many a person’s heart – from the cold Cybermen to the stoic Great Intelligence, Doctor Who’s villains have kept our favorite Time Lord on his toes. Since this BBC series has been around for over 50 years, the characters have changed quite a bit. Here we compare villains from classic Who (1963-1989) and current Who (2005-present) and any which have undergone redesigns within their own eras. Check out our list of 25 Doctor Who villains classic and current.
