(Look, Sylv's a great guy in real life, but he's just not the Doctor...)
I'd say he fits the same archetype as Patrick Troughton, Tom Baker and Matt Smith. I don't see how his performance is too far removed from the purest Doctor mould, as opposed to say, The Doctor running around snogging girls and crying all the time in slow motion.
He's not as much of an actor as them, he's more of a physical performer - closer, ironically, to the Pertwee mould in that sense...

And essentially he's being run by a different production team than on TV, so that makes a big difference.
I don't think there's much difference really. Andrew Cartmel's vision of what the show could do is absolutely the driving force of the VNAs even though he's not in charge.
Cartmel's vision to some degree, Darvill-Evans and Levene's visions, but not JNT's light-entertainment vision...

(trust me on this, I was there from the start!)
