He's great, I will be very sad if he leaves.

Don't do it Matt, Dr Who is better than the majority of rubbish that is churned out of Hollywood.

For me, he's certainly one of the top 11.

I will be very sad when he goes. Very sad, indeed. He blasted the "he can't replace David Tennant" crowd away one scene after the opening credits.

Well, my personal favourite remains the 10th Doctor of course, but Matt has sometimes tempted me to change my allegiance.....

I like Matt Smith enormously. On balance, I still prefer Tennant, but it's a very close run thing.

But I much prefer Tennant's era. I loathed Amy, while Moffat's storytelling has left much to be desired for me. He has terrific ideas, but he needs a really strong script editor to stand up to him and suggest he doesn't have to throw every single thing in at once.

Pertwee remains my all time favourite Doctor, though.

The best doctor since Tom was Peter, then Colin, etc,etc. I love all the Doctors!

It's just the writers, I hate

I agree.

I was always TB man, but MS has pushed him very close.

Even when there have been "dubious" stories, for me, it's MS that still makes it enjoyable.

That said, whilst (somewhat sadly) I still wear my TB scarf, i doubt that in my 70's I'll be parading around with a bow tie/Fez combination...(but then again...depends how wonky I have gone...)

Its a shame if he goes now because I really didn't care for his Doctor for seasons 5, 6 or 7a. But the Christmas special, with Clara, was wonderful.

For me, he really can't top 4 or 10 but I am beginning to really enjoy his Doctor at last.

Very close to mine. Although I'd move 2 up a bit. 4 places in fact.

My favorite Doctor list is reflective of which Doctor's DVDs I would reach for first, if I was sitting down for the evening to enjoy some Who. So, based on that, my favourites are:
[LIST=1][*]David Tennant[*]Tom Baker[*]Colin Baker[*]Peter Davison[*]Christopher Ecclestone[*]Matt Smith[*]Sylvester McCoy[*]Paul McGann[*]Patrick Troughton[*]William Hartnell[*]Jon Pertwee[/LIST]

Every actor who played the Doctor brought their own unique quality to the role, so I like them all, but if I have to list them in order of personal preference, it would be as follows:

1. Tom Baker
2. Matt Smith
3=. Peter Davison
3=. William Hartnell
3=. Sylvester McCoy
6. Paul McGann
7. Christopher Eccleston
8. David Tennant
9. Patrick Troughton
10. Jon Pertwee
11. Colin Baker


So, as you can see from that list, I agree with the title of the thread.

The Doctor is the Doctor irrespective of the actor.

Is Matt Smith the best Doctor since Tom Baker? Yes, but he's also the best Doctor EVER!

In my opinion anyway... Long live Doctor #11!

Peter Davison was my favourite Doctor until Matt Smith and I never thought would be possible for anyone to replace him as my favourite as he was my childhood hero

Tom Baker I actually rate quite a bit down my own pecking order, though I do think in many ways he will always be the definitive Doctor, conversely.

My current pecking order goes:

1. Smith
2. Davison
3. Troughton
4. Eccleston
5. T Baker
6. Tennant
7. Pertwee
8. McCoy
9. Hartnell
10. McGann
11. C Baker

The only one I didn't really care for in the role was Colin Baker, but even then, I do like his work on the audios and I think he came in to the show at a very tough time indeed.

I would put MS in the bottom half of my list, just above 2 and 1.
10 and 4 are my top two with 5 and 9 closely behind, the rest can fight it over in the middle

The Americans still like David Tennant best . . by a wide margin.

'Doctor Who': David Tennant tops US 'Favourite Doctor' poll

David Tennant has topped a poll to find the US public's favourite Doctor Who star. The survey - conducted by Entertainment Weekly - saw Tennant win more votes than the rest of his fellow actors combined. The Scottish star - who played the Tenth Doctor from 2005 to 2010 - scooped a huge 59% of the vote, with his successor Matt Smith taking second place with 16%.

Matt Smith is the greatest Doctor EVER by a landslide!

Series 5 was top
Series 6 was top-per
series 7 is set to be the top-est

Yeah, by comparison to Tennant and Eccleston...SMith wins by a LANDSLIDE!!!
