    Doctor Who has been added to the list of official English icons. Voted by the public, but selected by academics and arts experts, in a project that celebrates England's heritage, Doctor Who joins 56 other national icons.

    "We are all honoured and delighted. The public have taken the Doctor to their hearts," stated Russell T Davies, the producer of the current series yesterday.

    Doctor Who nominated by thousands of fans as a "classic symbol of Englishness" was added to the list of icons along with 20 others including: Winnie the Pooh, the Thames, Wimbledon, cheddar cheese, red telephone boxes, Rolls-Royce, Westminster Abbey, and Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album by The Beatles among others.
