Made by Ryckoud92, but they seem to have disappeared off the face of the internet. Since this year is the 50th anniversary of the show, I might as well show off my weird taste in Doctors.
Disclaimer: I don't like to think of the Doctors in terms of "best" and "worst", I prefer to think of them as people, the people who played them and as individuals. Story writing is a different thing altogether.
#11. The Third Doctor: My least favourite Doctor because.... he never met the Cybermen. There, that's it.
Well, more accurately, his Doctor was also stuck on Earth, and his shows were made in the early 70s and look incredibly dated, and to me, kind of boring. I don't know why. But I've got to be economical with the stuff in my head, I don't need to know about Doctor Who in the seventies, that space would be better used on strategies for studying for exams, writing essays, things like that. I don't exactly hate him, I don't hate any of the Doctors, but this is the one I have the least desire to know anything about.
#10. The Tenth Doctor: Seems bipolar to me somehow. I don't hate his Doctor, I can watch him. But his stories are stuck between two Doctors and two points in the show's history I like much better. The show felt like a soap opera, and kind of dumber under RTD, more and more. It felt like Harry Potter more than Doctor Who, kind of whimsical and magical, and aimed for kids more than adults. Kind of a campy, hammy feel to it. Really not my thing.
I should mention though that I started really following the show again with The End of Time, and I could really feel how intense people's emotions would be at the time about it, like something was in the air. But for me, I was just excited to see Ten put out of his misery.
#9. The First Doctor: The only story I've ever seen of this Doctor is The Tenth Planet, so no matter how much I liked him in this, it really isn't a lot to base anything off. I thought he seemed like a bit of a badass in that story, despite how sick he was on/off screen.
Update: The Tenth Planet is getting a DVD release, and a friggin' animated episode 4! [link]
#8. The Second Doctor: Mostly for the number of Cyber stories he did, The Invasion and Tomb of the Cybermen are both great. I like this Doctor but not enough to watch him in anything else.
#7. The Fourth Doctor: I used to hate this Doctor. I think it was mostly me being overly sensitive to the majority opinion that Tom Baker and David Tennant are the "best" Doctors, and Colin Baker the worst. I've watched The Ark in Space, Revenge of the Cybermen, Talons of Weng Chiang and the whole of his last season. And listening to Tom in interviews is pretty fun. But I don't really need to be any more of a geek, I need the headpsace for other things.
#6 1/2. The Ninth Doctor (Scream of the Shalka): I feel I should mention him here, because I watched the whole animated story recently and I liked him. Not loved, but it was an interesting take on where the show could have gone under different management, a different version of the tortured, angsty hero who has survived some terrible ordeal and blames himself for whoever he's lost. But he seemed a little too Mcgann-ish to me, if he were cast as an official Doctor in that outfit I don't think he would have really done it for me in the long run. Maybe as a possible Twelfth Doctor I guess. If Matt Smith's proved anything, it's that you can have whatever take you want on the Doctor, no matter how retro.
#6. The Eighth Doctor: I love the TV Movie, and Paul's Doctor, but since he only did one story (and I'm too poor and lazy to buy the audios) it's not enough to say this is one of my favourite Doctors. He's my favourite Doctor to photograph, since the figure looks so good.
#5. The Seventh Doctor: It's weird, Sylv's Doctor went from comical and silly to dark and brooding, so there's a lot to like and he's sort of a contradiction. I've watched all his episodes, and I like him the more I watch him.
#4. The Ninth Doctor: Nostalgia. He's kind of my first Doctor, his episodes are so thematic and stylish, different from the rest of the New Series. It feels more like a revamped version of the classic series, the shots even glow weirdly which went away after he regenerated. Nine isn't technically the most eccentric or elaborately dressed Doctor, but something about his post-Time War bravado and toughness appeals to me. He doesn't cry over what happend like Tennant did, he lashes out and loses control, but he's also as charismatic and funny as ever. He's how I'd want to be if I lived through a war and survived, I'd want to keep grinning in spite of it. I think holding back tears is more moving than breaking down completely, so I prefer him over David Tennant anyday.

#3. The Fifth Doctor Again, mostly nostalgia. I think Five would be a great Doctor to watch as your first. He's young, innocent and easygoing, and there's a sense of humor to him that wasn't allowed to shine through enough. Peter Davison has a way of making every DVD commentary into comedic gold, or at least him and Janet Fielding together. Back in 2009, that's what I used to do the most, and he was the first Doctor I managed to get as an action figure in 2009. 's photos convinced me to start with him and the Tomb/Moonbase Cyberman. So it's been nostalgic ever since. I guess that's why he takes the #3 spot.
#2. The Eleventh Doctor: I kind of surprised myself with this decision, part of it is being able to be part of the ride this time, instead of losing interest. Matt is the only Doctor to make things cool, and sometimes (more with some things than others) he makes them cool. I wish the pacing of his stories would work better, more two-parters and more time to get invested in characters and villains, but Matt definately holds it all together. I like how he's grown into the role since 2009/2010, he used to have such a fresh, baby face in series 5 but now he seems just old and matured enough to really convince as an old man in a young body. Series 5 is pretty nostalgic too though.
#1. THE SIXTH DOCTAH: I can't explain why, but I've always felt something special and important about Six. He's loud, he's confident and brash, he's colorful, he used to be the most hated Doctor ever. I used to be really insecure about that and constantly felt people rattling my cage about it. After all that, and knowing all about what was happening behind the scenes, he's kind of a hero to me, as the Doctor and as the actor, Colin Baker. Somehow his Doctor makes it okay to be less than perfect, and he improves in the Trial season and the audios until he's at his best in things like Real Time. He's the mercurial, mysterious but at the same time amiable and cocky guardian of eternity, in a rainbow coat. He's just awesome. The perfect Doctor to pair up with Sonic, (other than Matt) something I wasted no time in doing back in 2008. So again, nostalgia wins.
"So? That's hardly a threat. If I refuse to budge a handful of lives gone. If I go with you, and give you the secrets of my TARDIS, that's eternity gone. Not really much of a contest is it?"
Colin Baker, the Sixth Doctor, you were my Doctor.
Colin as number 1. MASSIVE respect for that. I think I can narrow my favourite doctor down to 5 maybe.....3 at a push. (Matt, McCoy, McGann very very closely followed by Colin and Pat). I love them all though.
You my friend just made a very old doctor who fan a very happy man tonight...thanks for that link of that "TENTH PLANET" animated ... now let me return the favor by providing you with this...[link] Check out some of those links on there...its only fan work but just something to try for fun Yes I'm a nut probably but it was just something fun to try lolz. Oh and here's a fake series 7 [link]
I've been dying to see that for many years...they said it was lost...I'm like DAMN!!!! so I hope they get the whole thing animated if they possibly can...I could do audio but VIDEO just makes it so much more better...animated would just be total epic since its lost.
