    Who was your favourite Dr Who, I saw a bit of Breakfast Tv this morning and saw Colin Baker being interviewed, and asked whether he got fed up of people asking about his stint as the Doctor, quite the opposite he was very pleased. Jeremy Bowen said his favourite Doctor was Jon Pertwee and his favourite villain was the Cybermen. Same here Jeremy.
    Did anyone relay hide behind the sofas as everyone interviewed says they did? Or is this a myth.

    My favourite Doctor was Jon Pertwee, probably the nearest the Doctor came to James Bond, with all his gadgets, and different vehicles, and natty suits (although totally different), and wasn’t adverse to a bit of fisty cuffs. Probably the order for the rest are Tom Baker, Patrick Troughtton, Peter Davidson, William Hartnell, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy. I think they all had there merits, but the later ones were let down by some bad scripts. Not to say some were good. I disliked Sylvester McCoy portrail as the doctor until I saw the TV Movie was this the same actor? Blimey I wish he had portrayed him in the series like that.
    I also have not added Paul McGann as this role was out of context, as well as dear old Peter Cushing.

    Also what were your favourite stories? Mine were Spearhead From Space and Earthshock.

    Baker (T) for me, though Pertwee was very good too.

    There are very few stories from 1970 to 79 that I didn't thoroughly enjoy.

    I'd prob'ly have to go for Talons of Weng-Chiang as my overall favourite though.

    Talons of Weng-Chiang, and The Caves of Androzani are some critics chosen episodes.
    I personally think the stories stated to get worse with The Key to Time.

    Having grown up watching Jon Pertwee, I would have to say he was my favourite, although I can just about remember watching Patrick Troughtton the first time round.
    Yes.. I believe I did actually watch from behind the Sofa at an early age.
    I dont know the name of my favourite story, but the ones that featured them Hairy Gorilla types, with the Daleks in the same story if memory serves me right.
    Heres my ugly mug from a recent visit to the Dr Who Museum.

    Liked Jon Pertwee of all the Doctors, much for the same reasons as Garrett, good gadgets, bit of scrapping here & there.

    Also spent most of my time watching it from behind the sofa!!:rolleyes: :D

    And who on earth would Peter Davidson be???

    Call yourself a Who fan! (a brave thing to admit I know!) Or maybe its a sneaking tribute to the cover of issue 61 of DWM!

    I generally subscribe to the Brigadier school of thought "Splendid Fellows - All Of Them" with the exception of McCoy - sorry but he just isnt an actor - a zany comedian yes, but an actor know - just look at any confrontation scenes that he had to do...

    As I'm 31, I have dim memories of Pertwee, and viewed Tom as god! Talons Of Weng Chiang being for me the best Who story that I have have ever seen.

    I do have a huge liking for both the 5th and 6th Doctors, and probably would go for Davison.

    Then again, Hartnell started it all, and Troughton was a pretty darned good successor....

    Looks like I cant decide...

    That’s what you get after hitting the home brew and doing a post. :blush: How much do you pay for your annual subscription to DWM.

    Hairy Gorilla types, with the Daleks, you are on about are they The Yeti’s, they appeared in The Abominable Snowmen, story was up in the Himalayas and The Web Of Fear was taken on the London underground and was the first encounter the Doctor had with Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart before he went on to form U.N.I.T.
    The only thing is I think they was never with the Daleks.

    I'm not sure if they were called Yeti's, but they had very dark skin and I am sure they wore black leather clothing, I'm sure the story was set in London. Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart was in this story for sure.
    I just had to fit another sure in :D

    'Ogrons' were the gorilla types used by the Daleks as muscle.

    They were in Day of the Daleks & Frontier in Space

    Nice one Confucius, I forgot about them, been on the home brew again.
    Timh just to let you know, Lethbridge-Stewart had been promoted to Brigadier by then. Both those stories mentioned are Jon Pertwee as the Doctor.

    Quiz: what did the Doctor say his name was?

    I thought paul mcgann was the best doctor. He only got that one shot at it which is a shame, but he played the part brilliantly - he managed to combine the eccentricity of the older doctors with the style and physical presence of the younger ones. He was quite handsome too! :blush:

    That's quite a regeneration for this post. :) Are you updating the poll to include everyone after Sylvester?

    Trouble is if I did there no option to change the vote now. I now know why your did not turn up I was looking for Dr Who and see your general is Doctor Who there loads under just Dr Who so I just thought it was the search results just not showing it.

    Anyway Roger was only with Jon's doctor, and the road accident and death of Roger was one of the reasons Jon left. I use to like seeing Roger on TV he was often a villain many more times than a good guy but was a good guy in Randall and Hopkirk and even more remarkable episode as Veronica Carlson:love: was in it also Gordon's Alive:laugh: and the Brigadier/Nicholas Courtney.

    If I remember correctly Roger had left the show anyway. He said everyone thought he was permanently attached to the show so wasn't getting offered any other work. I daresay he would have returned at some later point.

    There's only a relatively small number of votes that have been cast so far so an update might be an idea. It's very difficult to pick just one though.

    It says so in that video link, second one better on and mentions it in the first 30 seconds, and I think (or I got the wrong end of the stick) in the first mentions he died during Russia With Love but even though that in Turkey where Roger did die, it was back in 63. Roger was filming there in 73 when the car he was traveling in went off the road and down a ravine. I remember it on the news and was sad.

    He'd be on my short list along with William Hartnell and Matt Smith.

    I've always preferred the more eccentric persona of the Doctor and in my opinion the second TV incarnation (Patrick Troughton) nailed it and set the bench mark for all that followed.
