Guinness book of sci-fi conflict sorted

Remember all that fuss about which was the longest running sci-fi show: Stargate or Doctor Who? The Guinness Book of Records reckoned Stargate for some reason, but everyone else was scratching their head and pointing to Doctor Who.

Well, next year’s Guinness Book is going to set the record straight and go with Doctor Who instead. Hoorah!

UPDATE: Except it hasn’t. Stargate‘s still in there. Anyone worked out why?
