Yes, I think Sylvester McCoy's final two seasons were very good. :)

I tried to upload one of my favourite scenes with the 7th Doctor to YouTube, but it got blocked. It's the scene in Remembrance Of The Daleks when he's discussing cause and effect with the guy in the cafe on the eve of the final stages of his Cunning Plan. It's nice to see him really thinking about what he's doing... :)

I went for Jon Pertwee - cos he was my 1st Doctor, Tom Baker cos he's the one I remember most and, finally, Matt Smith.

Cant beat David Tennant I say, then again I've only watched Dr Who from Christopher Ecclestons Dr.

I am a David Tennent-ophile through and through....

but I have to admit... Matt Smith somehow manages to be OLD and YOUNG at the same time. Which the Doctor is.

I think David Tennant had some great moments, but I much prefer Matt Smith as the Doctor.

I like the fact that the 11th Doctor has been allowed to age hundreds of years off-screen. Poor old 10 only lived for 5 or so years. :D And the 9th Doctor seemed to have lost a fair number of years of age in the Time War (the 7th Doctor having given his age as 953 if I remember correctly). :lol:

Poor old Peter Davison is like Norway in Eurovision - nil points.

I'm a New Who fan as they cancelled Old Who when I was still quite young. I've only ever seen snippets of Old Who that I was made to watch by my Dad and it never appealed to me when I was little.

I didn't take to Chris Eccelstone though I loved David Tennant and thought nobody could possibly compete with him. Matt Smith has, therefore, been a surprising revelation. I love what he has brought to the Doctor - the sense of age despite his youthful exterior, his range of emotions and his dotty professor personality. My choice of fav has to be Matt, followed by Tennant.

Somewhat controversially I feel that the best companion of New Who so far has been Donna. I know Donna is the marmite of companions but I loved Catherine Tate's performance and I felt that she provided us with a great, strong companion who could hold her own. Rose and Martha were a little too needy emotion wise as they were in love with the Doctor. Amy and Rory were OK but not necessarily best served by some of the stories and there was a slight lack of character development. River is a great character but not really a companion ... I can't wait to see what's going to happen with this new companion Clara - so far the performance has been promising. Not long to wait now!

I would love them to do something more with Madame Vastra, Jenny and Strax - there seems to be great potential there. I know that, like Melody Pond/Melody Malone/River, they have been afforded the honour of a quick read story. More screen time would be wonderful too!

Patrick Troughton.

Of the NuWho actors:

Eccleston - too hammy
Tennant - too angsty. I got fed up with him apologising to everybody at least three times every episode (Though I guess that was mainly the fault of the script team. Russell T Davies may have saved the franchise, but he is just a fan fiction writer at heart).
Smith - getting there but I hear he is leaving soon, Pity.

I would have liked three votes for David, to make him higher. :D I did vote for two others, one is now well in the lead. :D
Best wishes,

I've gone for Peter Davison. The stories in his run are really not the best, but I just like him.

I've only watched the most recent ones, so had to vote for the last three. I really liked them each for different reasons, and each time they changed the casting, I thought I wouldn't like the new one, but was proven wrong every time.

Like Sylvester McCoy he was just getting into his character when all of a sudden he didn't have the role anymore :roll:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I agree. Also, I think they both weren't really allowed or didn't have the time to play around with their character. The times where they did get the opportunity, those became the really good episodes. I can't really talk for Sylvester McCoy because I've hardly seen any of his episodes... But big problem with the fifth Doctor era was that, Especially with all the companions Davison's Doctor had around him, none of the characters had enough space to evolve. It's a real shame.
