Tom Baker was my favourite until David Tennant came along.

K.q, It's really great to see at last someone like yourself, who also thinks the revamped (since Ecclestrone's time) Cybermen are cr*p! What with all that stupid stamping they do, they've been ruined! I much preferred it when they had that kind of asthmatic-electronic vocal sound. Much more intimidating! As you say there, the old ones were much better! Oh and let's have a blockbuster return story centred around the return of Davros! He is my favourite individual 'baddie' of all! Oh and please writers, lets also have a decent Master for a change too! I do so miss the late, great, Rodger Delgado in the role. Delgado WAS the Master, for me! Anthony Ainley was very good but I haven't liked any of the others at all in the role, not even the great actor, dereck Jacobi.

"It's the end, but the moment has been prepared for." The last words spoken by the great Tom Baker in the role. One of the saddest moments in the history of 'Doctor Who' because the series was about to descend into awful mediocrity for the duration of the next three Doctors!

Bit like James Bond really, you tend to like the first you saw. Also like Bond, I tend to think each one has been worse than the one before. Having said that, I probably have Patrick Troughton ahead of Bill Hartnell and Peter Cushing next.
Of the new ones I like the the most recent the most - more eccentric than superman - a problem which ultimately made Tennant unwatchable.

S.R.T, I know what you mean there about Doctor Who and Bond and I suppose I do tend to agree with that view, myself. I remember being so disappointed when Patrick Troughton too over, but as I've previously said, I've warmed to him slightly in recent times. I certainly put him lifght years ahead of Davidson, Colin Baker and McCoy! But would you, like me, like to see a much older Doctor sometime in the future?

David Tennant for me!!!!

Julie, Can I ask you something? How would you feel about there being a much older, in appearance, Doctor again sometime in the future? Or do you prefer to always see someone under, say, about 35-40 always in the role? Just interested. :-)

For me it was always Peter Davison, all the new ones in order. I think they have just got better and better as each brought something special to the role.

Peter Davison has always been my favourite Doctor, but I also have a fondness for Tom Baker as he was the Doctor when I first started watching the show as a child.

I'd agree with the suggestion that most people's favourite Doctor Who tends to be the dirst they have clear memories, so mine is Jon Pertwee, from the UNIT years.

My favourite companion tends to vary though; it's usually between Jo Grant, Peri Brown, Ace and Rose, oh and River if she counts as a companion rather than a recurring character.

"Don't forget me, will you?"
"Oh Sarah, don't you forget me."

Those were the saddest words for me. The great teaming of Tom Baker and Elisabeth Sladen. Nothing's quite matched that pairing for me no matter how good the rebooted show has been.

Patrick Troughton, followed by Tom Baker and then Matt Smith.

Agree it's difficult to separate the 'best doctor' from the 'doctor with the best plots' but Tom Baker scores on both counts as the plot quality peaked just before he took over and dropped off during the Davison period. During the reivival period a lot of the tension generated by the more ingenious plots is disipated by the single episode format. OK I'd be one of the first to wait till i'd got all the episodes on my hard disk and them watch 'em all in one go but the six episode format has a lot going for. In the Matt Smith era the plots are incoherent and the direction males then even worse, not his fault but he's too young, Baker (T) and Davison could make you believe there was seriousness, wisdom even, beneath the flippancy but Smith comes across as a arrogant twerp who succeeds by accident (or because the writers are on his side!!). Perhaps this is deliberate (Dirk Gently?) but if it is it's a mistake. Let's face the Doctor's the best British superhero since Dan Dare.

Ken O'Neill says:
Most "Old Who" plots were 4 or 5 x 25 minute episodes (subtract recaps and titles and I'd guess at 80 or 100 minutes of new content) rather than 6 episodes, but I'd agree that the 45 minute episodes somehow feel a shade rushed.

Actually when Matt Smith hangs up his Tardis I think the Political Correspondent for Sky News, Peter Spencer, should take up the reins.
