The Second Doctor.

I'll start by saying I think that incarnation was extremely influential on how other actors would approach the part. To start with - I feel like while Hartnell's Doctor has his moments, Troughton was the first truly eccentric and funny Doctor. That was the Doctor that first had a moderating influence of humanity (Hartnell was "humanlike" but that didn't stop him abandoning companions if he felt like it).

I also feel the need to point out if he didn't succeed in the part, the show would not be what it is today. It was a huge gamble to be like "we're getting rid of the lead actor, now this actor is going to play the same character, just with a different personality and demeanor, alright?" He didn't succeed, no Tom Baker, no David Tennant, no anyone aside from him and Hartnell (probably) and he made it work.

DAVID TENNANT.


I like all doctors from the 9th onward as that is when i first started watching however there is something about it that makes David stand out to me. I am not sure whether it is the episodes or the doctor itself.

The 10th Doctor. David Tennant did such an amazing job as The Doctor and he has the best Companions, especially Donna. Tennant has such good range in his acting and i love how easily he can go from the serious episodes to the lighter ones.

my favourites are the fifth and the second doctors. the second was incredibly influential to the role and i quite like peter davison as the fifth doctor.

It's either the Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton) or the Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy).

Troughton was always a lot of fun in his role, and I think Jamie was one of the best companions of the show.


While it's true some of McCoy's stories were weak, even ones that didn't work amazingly well, such as Paradise Towers, had a lot of charm to them. More so, Ace was a stellar companion, and the fact the Doctor went down a darker route was sort of fun to watch.

ninth and tenth! the first doctors i ever watched, nine is way underrated honestly, i understand since he was only on for one season but he was such a good one and his chemistry with rose and mickey and jack was so much better than any characters afterward imo

11th Doctor/Matt Smith

its a close call between 10,11 and 12 but I love Matt Smith

he brings the most humour to the show and I like how he can be serious and funny at the same time. that's the main problem I had with 9th is that he seemed really jokey and had no super cool moments like the others.

however, peter capaldi and David Tenant still have my favourite episodes: robot of Sherwood forest, girl in the Fireplace, and voyage of the damned.

but overall Matt is fave <3

Id say its a tie between 9 and 10. I really wish 9 had more than one season! I loved him as a doctor.

Has to be the Tenth Doctor for me, I just love the storylines for his seasons and he had my favourite companions, he's become a comfort charater for me, Eleven is a close second, I just love the feel of those doctors

this is a tough question! i think I'm pretty basic when i say my favorites are either 4 or 10. backgrounds for the actors vs other doctors.. 4 and 10 have basically had the best runs overall in my opinion. 10 was my first favorite because I watched the modern doctor who before the classic. I don't think I can really say that i have a full opinion on every doctor because Pluto TV sucks and only shows so much. but aesthetically and character wise i can say that i love it when doctors are just plain ridiculous. I hate it when people make the doctors overly serious AND when they're overly silly. ten (and others after) are good examples of keeping a balance between being sad and having drama vs just having plain old fun.

Gonna be a basic ass answer but, the 10th doctor. 

I believe he brought a nice vibe to the show and brought a lot of new viewers to the show, and due to him being in Good Omens, more people are watching Doctor Who.

My favourite Doctor, despite not having actually seen any of his episodes in full, has got to be Tom Baker's fourth doctor! He's so fun and iconic with his scarf and the jelly babies and UGH HES JUST SO COOL

If we're only counting doctors we've actually watched, then i would have to choose eleven. He's so fun and full of wimsy lol :)
