    David Collings or David Warner?
    (clue: Doctor Who Unbound)
    There are a number of reasons to prefer David Warner. First off, his Doctor still lives, whereas Collings appears doomed to be a one-off incarnation, due to the nature of his story line. Second, Warner is, flatly, a more nuanced actor. Thirdly, he's the only one of these "unbound" Doctors that made me wish he'd been the "real" incarnation, and the one on TV had been the "unbound" one. (In other words, he's a a better Third Doctor than Pertwee.)

    And finally, he's just been in a lot more stuff that I've seen and liked. He single-handedly defined the Cardassian race in ST::TNG"s "Chain of Command", where he goes toe-to-toe with a top-of-his-form Patrick Stewart. He made a small career out of playing real-life Nazi Reinhard Heydrich in at least two major productions (including the fabulous Holocaust miniseries. And Warner's the original Ra's Al Ghul, from the animated Batman series of the 1990s. Not really a Doctor Who-related reason, but they're all lovely, nuanced performances that made me thrill to the prospect of him taking on the role of the Doctor.

    Lessee here. Which penultimate story in a Doctor's era sucks more: "The Space Pirates" or "The Smugglers"?

    The Space Pirates because of the ensemble cast.

    OK topical one:

    Susan or Jenny?

    Taras, you're soooo superficial.
    It's not all about looks, it's about what's inside, that gorgeous, young, blonde beautiful head, and behind those sparkling, sapphire eyes you could just melt away into...ahem...Tenth Planet, for introducing the Cybermen.

    Mickey Smith

    OR

    Larry Nightingale???!!!

    Do your research, they both did!

    You prefer the introduction of the Cybermen and a story where the Doctor is taking a nap for most of the second half to an epic 10-part swansong the introduction of the Time Lords? Wow. Takes all sorts to make a world, I guess.

    should've got there quicker Darth!
    No, even though i havent seen Tenth Planet (who except Dave Coopster has!), The War Games wasn;t a very strong Troughton story imo, partly for his big send off (walking into a box?!), also partly for Jamie getting his memory wiped, regards to the longest running companion!
    Plus, like our very own Ken Deep, i lurve the Cybermen.
    And i'm not too keep on the Time Lords...good riddance! lol

    If you're talking Mickey's first episode versus Larry's first (and only episode), Larry without a doubt. But if you're talking the totality of the characters, it's no doubt MIckey just cause there's more there. How can you not have a heart who became one of the Doctor's staunchest allies, despite having lost his girlfriend but his reputation because of the Doctor. Going from being a murder suspect for a year to being a defender of the Earth is a pretty good leap for someone who was quite rightly described as a "useless lump" when we met him.

    When you say you've not seen it, do you mean you've seen the three episodes that exist and the official BBC reconstruction of the fourth episode, or do you mean you haven't seen it at all?

    C'mon, Taras, total softball. Lucie Miller. And I've given my reasons at length elsewhere. Ad nauseum.

    That's the problem Skep, 10 parts when 6 parts would've sufficed! At least Tenth Planet was just 4 parts.

    Yes, but you grounded out to short by not asking the follow-up...
