Who's your favourite Doctor Who from the series?

Postby Penfold » Tue Nov 27, 2012 11:02 am

Unfortunately, the poll only allows for ten options so I decided to leave out Paul McGann who, although listed as the 8th Doctor, only appeared in the tv movie (as well as in other media). For the same reason, I left out Peter Cushing who only appeared in the films. Have fun! :D

I have allowed for THREE VOTES PER PERSON to give a wider spread. :D

Pretty obvious which three I went for to get the thread going. I grew up with Jon Pertwee as my first Doctor but only really got into it during the Tom Baker years. Christopher Ecclestone had a dark side to his character that I really liked. :D

I went for Patrick Troughton, Sylvester McCoy and Matt Smith, though I do also really like the Jon Pertwee era. :)

I went for Pertweek, T. Baker and Tennant, but wanted another for P. Davison.

I couldn't decide between CE and DT for my last vote so I went ahead with TB and DT and now it won't let me have my final vote! Image :snooty:

I've gone back in time and edited the poll to allow for vote changes. This means that you should be able to cast your third vote now, Jan, and for everyone to recast their votes if they change their minds. :D

Don't you mean...?

Anyway, what's wrong with me having a favourite who isn't Tom Baker or David Tennant? :P In the last two seasons of the classic series, Sylvester McCoy was the best.

Don't believe me? Well, first, here's the trailer for one of his best stories, The Greatest Show in the Galaxy...



...and here, from that very story (I can't embed it because I deliberately got the link to link to the time where it starts) is Sylvester McCoy walking away from an explosion that was bigger and closer than he expected, and he barely flinches.

I agree Q, Sylvester McCoy is a seriously under rated Doctor, mainly due to the rubbish first series he did but by The Greatest Show he had really cracked the character, unfortunately too late to actually save it.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
