Best-Reviewed TV Sci-Fi/Fantasy 2018

There’s a new Doctor in town — and she’s made such a big splash that British classic Doctor Who, now in season 11 of its reboot, topped this year’s crop of excellent sci-fi and fantasy series. Season 2 of HBO’s mind-trippy Westworld, season 4 of fan favorite Outlander, Netflix import The Innocents, and season 3 of Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle season 3 fill out the top five.

The order of the rank below reflects the Adjusted Score as of December 31, 2018. Scores might change over time.

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Carried by Jodie Whittaker's boundless energy and charm, Doctor Who's latest regeneration manages to feel fresh well into the show's 55-year tenure.

Westworld: Season 2 (2018)
85%

#2
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Westworld builds on its experimental first season, diving deeper into the human side of AI without losing any of its stylish, bloody glory.

Outlander: Season 4 (2018)
88%

#3
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Outlander's epic romance settles into a violent fourth season, planting its flag on the American frontier while treading on darker themes.

#4
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: A sincere -- if a little simple -- supernatural love story, The Innocents' moody meandering leaves a satisfying first impression.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The crafty addition of minor sci-fi elements and a terrific William Forsythe to the show's already engrossing narrative make The Man in the High Castle's third season another worthy binge.
Directed By: Ridley Scott
