C'mon, you KNOW you want to....RANK 'em (and my #s2-6 constantly change due to mood, but you'll get my general drift here):

1) Tom Baker
2) Jon Pertwee
3) Patrick Troughton
4) Peter Davision
5) Colin Baker
6) William Hartnell
7) Sylvester McCoy (yeesh)

Yes, you're correct. I pretend the Fox TV movie with McGann never happened. Less said about it, the better.

Don't feel I can really rank the new guys in the modern series alongside these other actors. Just doesn't seem fair to the original bunch, with all the they had to contend with, when it was made, for how (VERY) little money it was made for, etc.

I break out the old series at LEAST once a year for some marathons, and now that the old series is being released on (flat out) amazing DVDs, I can thankfully begin to retire all of my over the air/broadcast recordings dating as far back as 1983 from Channel 12 outta Chambana. I'm amazed how well they've held up over the years tho, with as fast a speed as I used and as many shows as I could CRAM on one tape!

Okay-lemme know your faves, ranks, etc.

Actually, I don't think i'd alter your list that much...I may slide Hartnell ahead of Colin Baker and if we were adding in the most recent two Doctors, i'd put Tennant and Eccleston ahead of 4-7.

That said, Baker is number one w/ a bullet and Pertwee a solid second. Speaking of Pertwee, if I can find it, i'll post up a fun little nugget here later today.

The owner of my local comic book shop is a HUGE Doctor Who nut...has an entire section of all the DVD's/books/toys/etc. I bought a Dalek figure in there a while back...think, after I catach up on the new ones, i'm going to have to start raiding the older stuff as well.
