Favourite Doctor?
 
What's your favourite Doctor?

Mine's David Tennant, he was my Doctor really. Plus he's a great actor.

Paul McGann's my second favourite as I loved the 96 film, and Christopher Eccleston is my third as he played the role really well and I loved the dark side he had to him. Maybe if he stayed a bit longer, he'd be my number one, but he didn't so....Tennant snatches the spot. :P

Picking a single favorite is nearly impossible.

Saying that, My favorites are 3, 4 & 11.

Meh, I don't know why Smith's so popular. Although I like him as a doctor, a lot of his episodes have been terrible in my opinion. The only episodes of his that I really like a lot is The Impossible Astronaut/Day Of the Moon and the Angels take Manhattan or something. But Smith's been in some stinkers too.

Almost voted for 'my Doctor' Pertwee, but had to go with Smith. Best Doctor since the relaunch...

Matt Smith. He's got great range as an actor, a lot of energy that lubricates even the dumbest scripts, and a face that sometimes looks leading-man-ish, but just as often doesn't quite look human. I just wish more stories had been deserving of him.

After that, it gets tough. Frankly, I love them all for one reason or another. I suppose my next favorite is Tom Baker -- "my" Doctor. But on different days, Troughton, McGann, Eccleston, Tennant, and even McCoy might take that spot.

How come Smith's so popular all of a sudden. I remember clearly when David Tennant was being hailed as the best Doctor since Tom Baker.

Personally, I like Smith, but he's far from my favourite. I think he's about my 6th or 7th favourite, so not very high up.

Tom Baker, but I really like them all.

Eccelston is my fave, hands down.

After that it's a three way tie between Tom Baker, Hartnell and Troughton.

The exact same can be said of Tennant and Eccelston's runs as well.

There was a lot of push back on Tennant when he took over from Eccelston because to a new generation of fans, Eccelston was the first Doctor. Eventually Tennant grew on people and got popular. Which is what's happened with Smith. Who ever is the current Doctor tends to win most of the popularity polls. The same will happen with then next guy.

its very hard for me to single out just one Doctor.

I see it's time for the usual "Favorite Doctor" thread.

TOM BAKER. Period. Ad Infinitum. Ad Astra. Forever.

I can't comment on the first seven, so of the four that I do know (Eight through Eleven), Matt Smith is my favorite.

Mine's Tennant, closely followed by Pertwee.

It's a thing that DWM has commented on repeatedly over the last several years. Whoever is the current Doctor always ranks highly in polls. Usually either in the top slot, or in the second slot behind Tom Baker.
