NuWho Doctors
Last year I finally got into Doctor Who by watching the new series starting from 2005. I have really really enjoyed them all. I have seen a few of the other classic ones as well but I was wondering who of the new Doctors people have liked the most.

Though I like them all David Tennant is my favorite because he seemed to be having the most fun in the role and it shows.

Re: NuWho Doctors
I really, really liked Eccleston in the role. It took me a long while to accept Tennant and for a long time I kept saying 'I preferred the last guy.' But eventually, Tennant replaced Eccleston in my affections and he was my then-favourite.

I loved Matt Smith basically from his first appearance in the role and since then he'd been my fave Doctor, not only of this three, but ever. I can only hope but TPTB keep this winning streak up and that nuDoctor is yet again even better than his predecessor.

I loved Eccelston, he was my first Doctor, Tennant will always be my favourite Doctor, but damn if Matt isn't pressing to take over! He would easily be 1, 1A for me with David. He has just been sensational right off the bat.

I picked Matt - I probably warmed to Eccleston fastest (though both him and Smith were by the end of their first episode; for Tennant I don't think it was until his second, "New Earth"), but Matt wins by having stuck around longer. ;)

I love all of them. I wish Christopher Eccleston was around for longer than a year and I would probably like him more if he had stuck around longer. David Tennant was a lot of fun and very emotional, although I didn't like he got extra angsty sometimes. Matt Smith, however, is a combination of my two favorite Doctors, Tom Baker and Patrick Troughton, so he has catapulted to my favorite new series Doctor.

Re: NuWho Doctors
David Tennant but Matt Smith is getting close

Re: NuWho Doctors
Go with the one that introduced me to the franchise, Christopher Eccleston. It's a pity he didn't want to do Season 2.

Re: NuWho Doctors
I have to say, I prefer Matt Smith, primarily because his seems to be the most unique interpretation of the three. Tennant can probably pull off a few of Smith and Eccleston's lines, but I could never see Eccleston pulling off any of Smith's lines. (and yes, I know Gaiman originally wrote his episode with Tennant in mind)

However, I realize that that could be part of the writing itself, in that sometimes Ten was written more as an extension of unfinished business with Nine, rather than his own Doctor. Still, I think Nine and Ten are just a wee bit too similar in many aspects.

With that said, I liked them all, though Tennant was eventually starting to grate on me towards the end. And I would have loved to have seen Eccleston in at least another season. And imagine, just imagine, Eccleston going up against the Silence!

You forget them when you turn away, FANTASTIC!

I wouldn't mind seeing David Tennant go against the Silence as well.

Of course maybe they both did and forgot.:wtf::confused:

Re: NuWho Doctors
Matt Smith, by far. Eccleston was good, Tennant was unwatchably bad, Smith is superb.

Re: NuWho Doctors
I like all three of them, but there's something about Smith's Doctor that just keeps my eyes glued to the screen at all times.

Re: NuWho Doctors
I love all three dearly, but Tennant *is* the modern Doctor for me.

Which is funny because he annoyed me for the entirety of Season Two :lol:

Re: NuWho Doctors
Smith. All three have been great, though I give Smith props for giving us a Doctor who's more mature and grounded than the manic and touchy-feely Ten while remaining plausibly the same character. The combination of Eleven's almost insouciant approach to the most Earth-shattering (or Universe-shattering) events with his somewhat more emotionally raw response to personal issues also strikes a nice balance, in contrast to Nine's invariably highly-strung behaviour.

Re: NuWho Doctors
Like all three but Smith tops the poll for me.

Re: NuWho Doctors
Eccleston by far. His series was the best, the most who-like. Actual scary episodes and decent stories. Tennant's were fine, but nothing really special. And Matt smith is just annoying. Plain and simple. He takes eccentricity too far, He's full of himself too. And him singing praises of humanity every episode is getting old. I hate how everything is perfect too, amy and rory's house, perfect, all bright colours and happy happy. The tardis, all glossy and bright colours. It's just not right. The tardis should have been more like the original from the start though. Also Amy Pond is the worst companion ever. She's trying too much to take over as the main character, and she's really annoying.
It also seems the Doctor can fix anything in a minute, there's never any effort in it for him.

It's a shame really, It's a real disappointment.
