Which fandom is the most powerful? Which one will rule them all? Which one will come out on top? It’s time… It’s time… [ominous music plays]

In the last round, after a bitter and bloody struggle, and some accusations of foul play, BBC Sherlock finally went down against juggernaut Harry Potter. It had been a long and hard road for BBC Sherlock, where it was nearly defeated by Elementary in the first round. In the meantime, Supernatural lagged behind Doctor Who the entire time, it had begun to catch up in the last couple of hours of the competition. Alas, it was too little and too late – Doctor Who brought home the victory to the TARDIS for that round. And now, DJ, the time has come…

I love candlelight dinners, long walks on the beach and killing demons. Usually you can find me at rock concerts. 90% of redditors believe me to be male. I'm pretty sure I'm Loki.

  1. That Doctor Who won against Supernatural and Harry Potter against Sherlock is like a miracle (but yay!). And now this one … I think I’ll choose my childhood. Love, Harry. Love.

  2. It’s breaking my heart.

  3. awh. Sherlock didn’t get through 😦

  4. I HATE YOU FOR MAKING ME CHOOSE BETWEEN THE TWO THINGS THAT I LOVE. THAT’S LIKE ASKING THE DOCTOR WHETHER HE LOVES HIS BOWTIE OR SONIC SCREWDRIVER MORE!!!

  5. I can’t decide. I can’t vote. There is no way I can make this decision. I didn’t like the last Dr as much, but am I allowing that prejudice to overly influence my decision? This is horrible.

    I’m still not speaking to Loki.

  6. I love both, but I’m going with the Timelord 🙂

  7. I feel my soul ripping in two with this choice.

  8. im hoping for harry potter but doctor is in the lead

  9. I’m rereading all the Harry Potter books right now and they are truly, truly amazing. I had forgotten how fabulous they are. So my vote clearly goes those who enjoy the Marauder’s Map.

  10. The Chosen One must be chosen!

  11. Doctor Who without blinking.

  12. I see now what a bad decision it was to vote for dr who on every round before this one. I love you doctor, but Harry is my childhood and I just
    *cries*
    C’mon potterheads, get it together

  13. Aww, Sherlock. 😦 Was so close… Though I am really impressed and happy that Sherlock put up such a huge fight and made it so far, because I’m not sure if the fandom base itself is smaller than HP, but Sherlock definitely has less material than HP. 😛 So that’s sayin’ something that it gave it such a big run for its money! 😀 I BELIEVE IN SHERLOCK HOLMES.

    And now, voting Doctor Who! I’m almost (almost) happy that Sherlock didn’t win the last round, because it makes this choice a lot easier… DOCTOR WHO, FTW!

    VOTE SAXON! Er… I mean…. VOTE DOCTOR!

    😉

    These are going to be a nerve-wracking and stressful couple of days…. DX

  14. Daleks are supreme!

  15. Oh nooo i tried refreshing the page and voting again when i realized that the percentage dropped a bit! really i did it again and it happened again even though it dropped by like around 0.01 percent. so plz guys don’t try to do so or you will make ur fandome lose

  16. I was really worried it would end up between HP and Supernatural, but this choice was actually the easiest I’ve made by far! Sorry Doctor Who!

  17. I’m pulling for Harry Potter just because I’m ticked Dr. Who beat Lord of the Rings -.-

  18. Team Timelord!!!! Who is with me!!!!!! Theres timey wimey and David Tennant. Do him justice people

  19. Harry Potter. Because throughout 7 books, I was never disappointed. Unlike the last two seasons of Doctor Who. (This includes weighted exceptions for the exquisite Gaiman penned episodes.) P.S. ‘Battle of the Leviathans?” Sounds like someone was with me on Team Free Will. 41 days until season 9!

  20. Harry Potter must win! Harry Potter changed my life. Harry Potter has made me cry, laugh, scream, and smile. It got Darren Criss and the rest of Team Starkid careers, lots of child actors the ability to fulfill their dreams, J. K. Rowling to make a living, and something for 11 year olds worldwide to celebrate on their birthdays. Go read a Harry Potter book, and if you can’t honestly then vote for Harry Potter, with all due respect, you have no childhood..

    • You’re kidding right? Doctor Who has been around 50 years. It’s launched more careers than there are characters in Harry Potter, it’s captured the imagination of generation after generation and has spanned the universe from the beginning of time to beyond it’s end. The Doctor has saved countless worlds and civilizations, held court with leaders throughout time and space and ensured the survival of everything in the universe on multiple occasions. Harry Potter did what? Graduate? Congratulations. The Doctor wins battles with his mind, Harry requires dumb luck and spells. There’s no contest.

  21. Harry Potter must win! Harry Potter changed my life. Harry Potter has made me cry, laugh, scream, and smile. It got Darren Criss and the rest of Team Starkid careers, lots of child actors the ability to fulfill their dreams, J. K. Rowling to make a living, and something for 11 year olds worldwide to celebrate on their birthdays. Go read a Harry Potter book, and if you can’t honestly then vote for Harry Potter, you are truly a Muggle, and don’t belong here.

  22. So evil that you all made us choose between the two BIGGEST British pop icons. D: But sorry, Harry. I’m so, so sorry. I choose the Doctor.

  23. HARRY POTTER MUST WINNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  24. It’s gotta be Harry Potter; it just HAS to be. That series defined a whole generation. DEFINED. Yes, Dr. Who is a big deal. But Harry Potter changed the world.
    -Kaitlyn

  25. i think this was actually the easiest choice! sorry Dr Who, i still love you but Harry Potter changed a generation, and was my first fandom, so im choosing the chosen one

  26. I love Doctor Who. period. But I like Harry Potter, but not as much.

  27. Impossible to vote.. It’s a paradox! The Doctor is a fan of Harry Potter.. Can’t vote ç_ç

  28. Well I’m heart broken now that my beloved Supernatural didn’t make it, but I have made a decision:

    I picked Doctor Who.

  29. ..I love Harry Potter…

  30. 50 years of Doctor Who has reached countless generations. Harry Potter is great, yes, but the story has ended (quite marvelously too- and I don’t think that about many series). Doctor Who always has new material to learn and discover. So I’m, sorry, Harry, but I gotta vote Saxon. Tap-tap-tap-tap.

  31. EVERYBODY GO 4 HP MAKE IT A PRFECT (bow)TIE WE CAN DO THIS

  32. The Doctor’s hearts burn for revenge over HP defeating his friend Sherlock…(he suspects illegal time turner use.) Doctor Who, this is your year; time to show HP nobody messes with a Steven Moffat show.

    I love you too HP (always, until the end) but one does not simply defeat Sherlock and get away with it.

    (Yet Harry defeating Sherlock has made my choice easier, for had it been Sherlock vs. Doctor Who, I would really have been in a conundrum.)

    Whovians (and Wholockians, Sherlockians) Unite! VOTE DOCTOR!

  33. Even though I only started watching Doctor Who last year, I have to go with it. Come on Whovians!
    No offense potterheads, I mean Harry Potter is great and all, but Doctor Who is far better

  35. you all are bunch of idiots, you betray your childhood for a tv show HARRY POTTER RULES

    • Oi! We all have our opinions. We didn’t “betray” our childhood. And what if we started watching DW when we were kids?

      Vote the Doctor

      The TARDIS is our flag

    • Doctor Who has been around for 50 years, Harry Potter for 15. Learn some history.

    • I was 11 when I started watching Doctor Who, 15 when I read Harry Potter. Now, tell me again which one was my childhood? Please don’t just assume this because Harry Potter was yours.

  36. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    Harry Potter is Losing NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  37. HARRY POTTER! Doctor Who is great and all, but I’m more a Potterhead than Whovian. Come on guys! Do you think those three incredible actors spent 10 years for nothing? VOTE POTTER!!!!

  38. Wow, I thought HP died out years ago. Doctor Who is still better, 50 years and still running! BBC > Everything Else :U

    • Ok so just to be clear, DW has only technically been on for 36 years in terms of actual seasons produced. Still super duper impressive though. And true, the fandom itself and whole of it has been around for 50 years. Pretty darn impressive. But if that’s impressive, try LOTR which was first published in 1954 and The Hobbit in 1937!!! That’s a solid 76 years of fantastical fangasms!!!!! The point is, if you love it, love it and don’t get sour is someone else doesn’t. At least they are loving something! I mean, look at the results of this epic finale! EPIC EPICNESS OF AWESOME LOVE! QED, Case in point and all that jazz. ❤

  39. Harry Potter is superior to Doctor Who in one way. He is better at losing! Raise communications barrier!

  40. forza HERRY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  41. VOTATE POTTER … quindi la ROWLING

  42. I believe in Harry Potter because it has made me happy and been my favourite series ever. Guys, we can do this! Please vote Harry Potter because it has touched the hearts of so many people. I will always and forever vote

    HARRY POTTER ⚡

  43. I’ve been a Whovian a lot longer than a Harry Potter fan – heck long before Harry Potter was written. Firefly and Supernatural are ahead of being a pothead.. er.. Potter-Head… really?? The Harry Potter fanbase needs a better name than Potter Heads…

    • by the way… when is Sherlock coming back!?!?!? Star Trek Into Darkness is already out of theaters…. time to go back to being a good guy… well, on the side of good anyway… mostly.

  44. HARRY POTTER!!!!!

  45. Harry Potter kept me alive during my tortured teenage years, but the Doctor made me realize the value of life, and that “everyone is important”. I am sorry, I adore Harry Potter, but the Doctor has to win. The Doctor always win.

    • NO!!! You traitor to your teenage savior!

    • It’s great that both have influenced you so positively! Choose whichever you like, it doesn’t diminish your love for the other.
      I’m of the “HP Generation” but I didn’t read/watch it until I was 15. Doesn’t make me any less a fan. Nor does voting for Doctor Who.

  46. HARRYPOTTERHARRYPOTTERHARRYPOTTERHARRYPOTTERHARRYPOTTERHARRYPOTTER * gasps for breath * HARRYPOTTERHARRYPOTTERHARRYPOTTERHARRYPOTTER,etc… well, you get the idea.
