    Who is your favourite Doctor?
    Authored by: Omega on Thursday, July 14 2005 @ 03:04 AM EDT
    This is always a tough one for me too, because I really don't have a doctor that I strongly dislike. I enjoy watching even my least liked Doctor. But, for the most part, I would have to say that Peter Davidson is my favorite. I love his era. He's got some great stories like Earthshock, Enlightenment, Caves of Androzani, Frontios, etc. Great companions like Tegan and Turlough. As well as one of the best new Doctor stories and regeneration stories. Gotta love it.

    Who is your favourite Doctor?

    Isn't it interesting, so far, out of nine people that voted, not a single vote for Tom Baker as of yet. He was my first exposure to Doctor Who. A local NY station, WWOR channel 9 were airing early Tom Baker stories in the late '70s. Some people wind up choosing their first Doctor as their favourite. For many in the US, that would be Tom Baker. Indeed he does hold a special place in my heart(s) ;) because of that as well. But instead, I picked another Baker. While, I can't really choose just one... (as I said previously), the reason I did pick Colin Baker in this poll are several. One, although he was not "my first Doctor" -- he was the current "new" Doctor when the club was first formed. His stories were hard to come by (there was no BitTorrent downloads new DW episodes on the net back then), the only way to see his new stories were at conventions, where they were projected on big screens in rooms filled with anxious fans. So speaking collectively, he was the club's "first Doctor" even though he was not my first personally. The Colin Baker era picked up the momentum that was escalating during the Davison years. This was evident during his first season. Not all of them succeeded, but there were some good ones nonetheless that had the same dark motif and sense of danger as where we left off with Davison story "Caves of Androzani" let's say. Another reason for selecting Colin Baker was that he brought he brought back some of the touchiness and edginess of William Hartnell's Doctor. The sense of anti-establishment as well. Colin's Doctor was not about blending in (his outfit says this plainly), he personified being free to yourself, and not conforming to society's 'norms' (yes, other Doctors did this as well, such as Pertwee, and all of them do it some extent). Finally, Colin Baker the person, always gave it his all, whether it was playing the role in the series or attending conventions as well as interacting with other Doctor Who guests at these cons. He never shrugged off fans, no matter how pressing or rude they may come off, he always gave a little of his time for them.

    With that all said, I still say that I don't have a favourite. Ah, the Doctor. Wonderful chap. All of them. (as our friend, the Brigadier had said.)
