If you recall several months back we asked readers to participate in our DOCTOR WHO 50TH ANNIVERSARY SERIES SURVEY. Well, in case you hadn’t heard the results are now in and were revealed in the lastest issue of Whotopia.
One of the questions we asked readers was “Who is your favourite Doctor?”
The results make for very interesting reading and if the attached chart is any indication, its clear to see that Tom Baker is the clear winner in this category. 22.2% of those who responded to the survey nominated Tom Baker’s fourth Doctor as their favourite Doctor. It’s no surprise that 32 years after the Fourth Doctor left television screens that the fourth Doctor remains the most popular of all eleven.
Doctors two, ten and eleven are all in a close race, but its Matt Smith’s portrayal of the Eleventh Doctor that ends up being the most popular of the three. While fandom may be divided on the opinion of the stories of the Eleventh Doctor, Matt’s portrayal has definitely proved to be quite popular with the fans.
I must admit though that I’m disappointed by Paul McGann’s Eighth Doctor’s last placing as I thought despite only one outing in the role, he made for a far better Doctor than Sixth Doctor Colin Baker or even the Eighth placed Christopher Eccleston.
