Unfortunately, I need the “other” response or all of them.
First, I think comparing old series to new is not possible. Apples and Oranges. It’s a different world now in TV and how shows are written, created and the expectations of them.
Second, I have never had a favorite. I liked all of them for what they brought to the role. And I did see Tom Baker first but really enjoyed them all.
My wife would vote Chris as it was his performance in the first couple of episodes that pulled her into it, when she didn’t want to be pulled into it! I am disappointed he didn’t do more seasons but not with Tennant’s Doctor.
I did watch some old ones, about two years ago, and found them watchable but they do take a bit of rose colored glasses. While it doesn’t take F/X for a good story, it’s easier to get into a story if you don’t notice the F/X or have to suspend disbelief at the rubber suit. But, I could still watch any Dr Who episode and enjoy it!
vislor <-- Dr Who fan from the name!
