‘Doctor Who’ thing of the day: the ‘Guardian’ geekishly catalogues every villain and monster

I’m still trying to get my head around the geeky awesomeness that is the compilation of villainry and monsterness that the Guardian’s Data Blog has assembled for our fannish pleasure:

This image doesn’t even begin to do it justice: the actual thingie is interactive, and I urge you to check it out if you’re simply dying to know precisely how many episodes, say, the Ogrons appeared in. It’s clickable by a long list of villains and monsters. (But hey, since when is Lethbridge-Stewart a villain or a monster?)

Data Blog has more detail on the whys and wherefores, such as:

Here’s a list of all the Doctor Who villains there have ever been since the very first episode in 1963. Whether it’s to help you put your bet on what will make a reappearance next series or just to satisfy hard-core Whovians, hopefully this will help you out.

The chart however doesn’t include villains exclusively in Doctor Who books, audio books and spin-off shows.

You can even download the datasheet from Google Docs.

This could be what the Internet was invented for.

(Thanks to the many readers who sent the link. If you stumble across a cool Doctor Who thing, feel free to email me with a link.)
