Does Stargate really beat Who as longest running show?

Ha, this made me laugh. The BBC Doctor Who news site, argues that the Guinness Book of World Records has got it wrong. It states that Stargate SG-1 has the record with 203 episodes. However Doctor Who had a new series of episodes every year without fail between 1963 and 1989, a grand total of 695 episodes. Which will take some beating.


Seems that the Guinness Book of World Records now agrees with you.

Though I find the level of reaction from the fans on the Doctor Who news site a little disturbing.

Seems to me this was a simple mistake made by people who aren't quite as obsessive about Doctor Who as someone like me. I really don't think it has anything to do with Stargate being American or the relative qualities of the two shows.

Yeah, slightly over the top.
