No, that's not it. In the episode 'Journey's End' he regenerates but somehow the proximity of the hand affects the process and he regenerates into the same form. Later the jar containing the hand falls open and the hand regenerates into another Doctor, this time in human form, with one heart. That Doctor isn't counted.

But he doesn't regenerate there. He says he used the regeneration energy to heal himself but that was it (ergo he did not regenerate). He sent the rest of the regeneration energy to his hand (which did regenerate when it intra-metabolicked-something with Donna).

Mine would be

Tom Baker
David Tennant
Jon Pertwee
Most of the other Doctors would be more or less equal with one Doctor bringing up the rear.
Christopher Eccleston -- as we move further away from his season the less I like that season. I don't hate it, but I find that there are way too many episodes that I'm developing a meh feeling to more than anything else.

Having said that though, Dalek and The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances are among my absolute favourite stories of the new series.

I long thought it was stupid that the Time Lords did not survive, given the number of returns of the Daleks. It was really making the Doctor look incompetent. This fixed that.


I agree and I'm glad Moffat has produced an avenue to correct that/

No real dreams shattered, my position was always that I was going to go along with BBC's official position -- hence my constant use yesterday of the word "official." :P

I didn't think this was what they were going to do, but now that they have I'm fine with it.

No, I like him, just not as much as others. This is in part do to the serials but also that he just did not have all the other trappings as the others had due to his being the first.

An alternate way of ranking them for myself -

Tom Baker, Jon Pertwee
Patrick Troughton, David Tennant, Sylvester McCoy, Matt Smith, Paul McGann, John Hurt, Peter Davison
Colin Baker
Christopher Eccleston, William Hartnell

Eccleston's rank has a bit to do with how dark the season was, how dark he was but also what an ass he is in real life towards the role.
Plus, coming in with Pertwee and the rest of the classic, makes him the hardest one, other than Peter Cushing, to accept. Hartnell is too cantankerous for me, though the giggling sometimes worked, it at times got on my nerves. It's like... like... Zechs as an old man...

That said, I have a friend who's fav Doctor is Hartnell as that was the first Doctor he saw as a kid and got hooked on.

What's the deal with the Peter Cushing Doctor? Just not accepted as canon?

Yes it is not Canon, and it was wildly different from regular Who.

IIRC, Cushing played a human doctor named Dr. Who. Like, Who was his actual last name. And he invented the TARDIS.
