Favorite Incarnation Of The Doctor

Let me explain the line up. Peter Capaldi did not make the list because we have not had a full episode of him as the doctor.
The one heart, no regeneration, David Tennant duplicate, meta-doctor did not make the list. I'm probably a minority of 1 or maybe part of a minority of less than 1% of Doctor Who fans that count him as an incarnation of the Doctor. I count him an incarnation because he was created from the leftover regeneration energy David Tennant's Doctor didn't use.
John Hurt did make the list. Day Of The Doctor pretty much confirmed he is an incarnation of the Doctor. If I've got his place in the line up right, he's the one that regenerates into Christopher Eccleston.
Okay Doctor Who fans, it's time to cast your vote.

Tennant will win...

That said I'm in my usual quandrt; Smith Davison or Troughton....decisions, decisions...ah sod it, Matt.

To add, I think these polls would be more interesting if you could vote for 2 or 3 of your favourite Doctors, I think that would give a fairer indication of each Doctor's popularity. As it stands I'll be amazed if the top three here isn't Tennant, Smith, Tom.

Re: Favorite Incarnation Of The Doctor

Of the "new" Doctors my favourite is Tennant, but I am not overly familiar with the old Doctors (just saw a few clips here and there), so I don't feel like I can cast a fair vote. I'm curious about the results, tho.

Yeah, I agree. There are two Doctors I love the most, Tennant and Pertwee. I'll cast my vote for the former since I only have one and he's slightly ahead.

I've yet to see the runs from 5 to 8, though, but I feel confident enough to vote in spite of that.

Patrick Troughton all the way.

Like many others in the U.S. Tom Baker was my first Doctor but P.T. is my favorite. I also feel that Colin Baker was given the runaround during his time and he has excelled in the BF audios. He is definitely my favorite audio Doctor.

Agreed, because you know what, he was my Doctor.

Yup, My favorite is Incarnation 1 - 13, and I'm sure 14 will rank right up there in no time.

Such a wonderful Chap, all of them

Re: Favorite Incarnation Of The Doctor

Tennant of course!

Yeah, I think it would be interesting if we could vote for three in future. I'll try and do that after an episode or two of Capaldi's run. Just for the hell of it, here's a list again!

1) David Tennant (10th)
2) Paul McGann (8th)
3) Christopher Eccleston (9th)
4) Colin Baker (6th)
5) John Hurt (war)
6) Peter Davison (5th)
7) Patrick Troughton (2nd)
8) Jon Pertwee (3rd)
9) Sylvester McCoy (7th)
10) Tom Baker (4th)
11) Matt Smith (11th)
12) William Hartnel (1st)

Man this list has changed over the years. For a start since DOTD, John Hurt has become a new fave, and I've gotten into Davison a lot lately, plus Androzani won me over. Tom Baker has gone quite down on my list as I've realised there's only a tiny handful of his stuff I like. I'm not really a fan of his 70s stuff and the E space trilogy in the 80s was crap, so that's about five serials remaining. I'm still yet to see Deadly Assassin which I got for Xmas, so that may sway my decision. For reasons I have explained, I don't like Smith much mainly because of Moffat but I also find him a bit annoying at times. Hartnel is at the bottom, but that's mainly because he's never been in something I've fallen in love with apart from the last episode of Celestial Toymaker (why oh why did that have to be lost and yet we've got that awful Aztecs in full. Quite easily the worst serial of the classic series, it's like a godamn Shakespearian play.)

Re: Favorite Incarnation Of The Doctor

<GASP>, I love The Aztecs, it's amongst my favorite Hartnells, and certainly my favorite of the Historicals (Though, I recently finally watched Marco Polo Recon, and enjoyed it and I think, I would likely love that Serial if it is ever recovered)

Yeah, this pretty much my stand as well. But as we can only vote for one, I'll have to go with Tennant.
