Three major spinoff shows have aired, but which one do you think has been best?

I've gone with Torchwood. I wasn't so keen on S4 but the first three seasons just got better and better as they went along. SJA was amazing, but I prefer Torchwood for the most part.

I went with Torchwood as well, but I place the following caveat on that - only up to the end of Children of Earth.

My opinion may change if/when I get round to watching all of SJA.

I think Torchwood for me. I like SJA but it can feel a little childish at times. I love the ideas behind many of the SJA stories, but Torchwood stories are always better.

I really like both SJA and Torchwood, but I actually saw the first few episodes of Torchwood before I even saw Who, so I've got to go with it Cheesy

Torchwood for me as well. I've not paid much attention to K9 and while SJA is brilliant, it isn't great 'drama'. Torchwood is more my thing.

I've gone with SJA - Torchwood was fabulous but SJA just shades it. In many ways SJA is how Doctor Who used to be and I have grown to love it deeply

Torchwood for me. SJA is great but I think Torchwood is better suited to my age and tastes

Ignoring K9, because it's awful, it's really hard to choose between the other two. They are so completely different and offer completely different things to the audience. SJA feels more like Who though and so while I love both, that gets my vote.
