Is it just me, or has Smith's style gotten progressively older looking as he went on? He started out wearing the suspenders and a coat... but now he's been wearing these more old man looking things.

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.


Oh OK.
I can't really make a list because I've only seen Tennant and Smith.

My favorite is Matt Smith. Of the others, I've only seen Hurt, McGann (in the minisode), Tennant, Eccleston, amd a little Troughton, and Hartnell. I liked what I saw, but not enough to really rank them. I've all of the revived series, though.

Smith was my first Doctor. For years people had been telling me I'd enjoy the show and were surprised when I told them I've never seen an episode (and by 'years' I mean even before the revival), so a couple of years ago I decided to try the show. My daughter Makayla and I started with season 5, because that was the beginning of the current Doctor, watched seasons 5 and 6 and then went back to the first season of the new show and watched everything through. Once we got back to Smith my daughter told me she was confused by the time loop. Why did it go back to the beginning? She was 6 and didn't understand that we'd started with season 5 and went back to it. She thought the show itself had looped!

I wonder if that wasn't intentional considering how much the Doctor has aged since regenerating from the 10th (now 11th) to the 11th (now 12th).

I'm trying to watch all the Doctor Who episodes I can get. Might even go through some of the "reconstructed" episdoes. I watched the Unearthly Child serial a day or so ago. Some interesting stuff there. Things that were notable to me: The Doctor was a dick; the TARDIS is supposed to change shapes; the granddaughter of course (but already knew about that going in); all cavemen speak English. It was pretty fun to watch.

My ranking...

1) Tennant
2) Troughton
3) Ecceleston
4) Smith
5) Davison

Hartnell, Pertwee, T. Baker, McCoy, McGann & Hurt fill out the middle in any order

Cushing, Atkinson, Broadbent, Grant and Lumley fill out the near to end.

C. Baker dead last (sorry Colin, that's what you get when you go Peri's neck instead of her breasts :-D )

You should really try the classics. They are great too.

I strongly recommend you watch as much of the classics with your daughter as you can. It'll be so much better for both of you. :-D

Also Aztecs, aliens, robots, etc... :lol:

See, that's the thing about Hartnell's Doctor, he was a dick but after a while, one you could like.
