    OK - seems we've got a few Doctor Who fans on GBATemp so here's a Poll to decide Who is/was the best

    There were quite a few more players (see Wiki for details) but I'm concentrating on the 'TV' (or 'TV movie') players

    [I know Matt Smith has still got to prove himself, but I've added him anyway]

    Please choose the Best and the Worse Doctor (In your Honest opinion) - but if you have more than one or an order of preference... why not post, & I may just do a league table & alter the first post accordingly

    My top 3:
    1:David Tennant
    2:Tom Baker
    3:Sylvester McCoy

    My Bottom 2:
    10: Peter Davidson
    11: Colin Baker

    Best so far: David Tennant
    Also like: Paul McGann; Jon Pertwee (loved the Auton stories)

    I think I will like Matt Smith once we see his episodes.

    @Hatsu: Just be glad that RTD and Barrowman aren't the Doctor.

    [OT]Anyone watch the DT special of Buzzcocks?[/OT]

    Best Doctor: David Tennant
    He's got such a manic energy, and plus, he can get away with wearing Converse high tops with a suit! Also, I love the little pop culture references he spouts, like when he refers to the Master as "Skeletor" in The End of Time: Part One.

    Worst Doctor: Colin Baker
    He struck me as being way too arrogant for his own good. He also had a hard time keeping his ego in check.

    I only started watching during the revamp with Christopher Eccleston, so I missed everyone prior to that. And like everyone on the planet, I enjoyed David Tennant immensely. I think it's not fair to Matt Smith to have him listed on EITHER poll. We saw him for what... two minutes at the end of the last series? And a bunch of daft promo pics. Give the boy a chance!

    The reason I've added him is that I HOPE in the future people will still pop along to this thread & cast a vote (those who havn't voted yet that is) - there is also the possibility some people have already seen him acting in other shows & may get an impression of whether he's a 'good' actor or otherwise.

    I agree it's a bit unfair since we havn't seen him in the role of 'The Doctor' yet but once the new season has started I may add a NEW poll or I may be able to alter the existing one

    Favourite:
    David Tennant
    Sylvester McCoy
    Paul McGann - his audio works are excellent!
    Jon Pertwee

    Least Favourite:
    Colin Baker, though I am starting to like him more
    Tom Baker - good, but overrated
    Hartnell and Troughton - only because I've not seen any of their stories, except the 3 doctors (didn't that not have hartnell though?

    edit: I am actually REALLY looking forward to matt smith... I think he's going to grow into the role.

    I don't think Matt Smith should be on the list as we haven't seen him in action yet

    OK so some people don't think Matt should be included - so I've taken him off the poll (Until the new series starts)

    That's when I started watching the show, but I was watching it with a family member...I've only seen a couple of episodes with him and like 1 with the guy after him. So I guess I like Christopher Eccleston the best.

    For me my favourite Doctor will always be Tom Baker. There's a nostalgia factor in there cos he was the one I grew up watching. I also like him best though because he's the one who seemed the most distant, like he was so caught up in the wonders of the universe that everything else was just a distraction. I also preferred him because he was a more adventurous and less serious Doctor, like life was just a big game - even when fighting the enemy.

    Worst Doctor ever was Paul McGann. Overly serious and lacking in charisma. He was just boring to watch.

    Wait, what? [​IMG] I enjoyed the movie, and I liked his Doctor. I wish there was more TV with him on; there's just EDA at the moment. The bit in the film where he was mentioned as half human was a mistake; that's been retconned to hell and back.
    Also, would you like a jelly baby?

    Tom Baker was the best.

    End of.

    More personality, talent and charisma in one finger than any other Doctor had in their entire body.

    His ad libs were notorious and priceless, and his tyranny over cast and crew legendary.

    The Bob Holmes/Tom Baker combo was always a winning one ... also known as the Gothic period, it will always remain my favourite time.

    The worst Doctor for me was Colin Baker, as could never decide on the personality he wanted to portray.

    The worst stories were those of McCoy. Whilst a half decent Doctor, the storylines, filled with fore-knowledge and anti-canon garbage, were dire, and along with the effects of what happens when the fans run the show ... mirrored in the recent Russell Davies tenure ... were responsible for the '89 demise of the show.

    EDIT : The poll only goes to show how many Nuvo Whovians are present on this site.
