People seem to like to debate this a lot, so I wanted to know what you guys think. Which Doctor do you prefer, 10th or 11th, and more importantly, why? This isn't "who would win in a fight", this is just your personal input.

Much the same here. Let me say that I am a big fan of both but Ten was my first Doctor and this holdsa special place for me. Ten has better humor in my opinion and has more emotional depth compared to Eleven who seems to either be whimisical or angry all the time. I do love Eleven's speeches though.

I actually disagree. I do love both Tennant and Smith, but I personally like 11 better. I just think he's a bit more funny, but I also like his dramatic scenes too. I think the biggest problem is the writing for the 10th Doctor. As an actor, I think Tennant's probably a little bit better than Smith, but I also think 10 had some really bad episodes, and really bad, important lines, like saying "I don't want to go" when he regenerates.

I haven't watch Doctor Who as long as most fans but I have watched enough to know I agree with the die hard Who fans that the 10th Doctor is one of the best. I prefer him to the 11th Doctor.

I really loved him when he did that whole I am the Doctor so you better not f**k with me routine when he would warn a villain. LOL

I'd have to go with the tenth. I've seen every doctor go through their trials and tribulations but the tenth has claimed the title of king among them.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE QUADPEY!!! MATT SMITH FOR LIFE!

Figured this was okay since site's ending and all. Aaaaaaaanywaay, I made a huge ass post about this like a few weeks ago that details why so if you wanna know go read that. Considering I'm an absolutely massive rabid fanboy of the character and the show in general (even seen pretty much all the old stuff (and yes, it is good)), and that the first Doctor I was introduced to was the 9th (so I'm not blinded by any irrational sense of loyalty), I'd hope my opinion is a pretty well-informed one-- and I think the 11th is better than the 10th. I can easily understand others having a personal preference to any other though Doctor cuz they're all great, honestly. I'd rank Tennant as maybe my fourth favorite.

Not gonna go into depth on this again but the 10th suffered badly from some really self-indulgent lines, as well as a bad case of lookatmeI'mabadass syndrome. Also Rose Tyler was annoying. Really. Annoying.

HOWEVER, I will say that I think Peter Capaldi has the potential to be better than both of 'em. :P

Edit: Ah, feck it. Might as well post my top 11 list while I'm here.

11. Sylvester McCoy (7th)
10. Colin Baker (6th)
9. Patrick Troughton (2nd)
8. Paul McGann (8th)
7. William Hartnell (1st)
6. Christopher Eccleston (9th)
5. Peter Davison (5th)
4. Tom Baker (4th)
3. David Tennant (10th)
2. Jon Pertwee (3rd)
1. Matt Smith (11th)

Okay so after further thought... he's third. By the way McCoy and Colin Baker were by no means bad, I just think the rest were better.

Tom Baker was really good. The main gripe I have with his tenure is that he stuck around too long and almost started to outstay his welcome a bit-- there was definitely a noticeable drag in his later seasons, at least compared to his first few, in my opinion. Seven years is really just too long. I think 3-4 is pretty good run.

I like 10 better than 11 but it's hard to say why. I like Smith quite a bit, but whenever I see an old episode with Tennant I'm like, "Come back! We miss you!"

 

The only thing I can put my finger on is that Smith isn't a badass Doctor. He has a gentler presence than just about anyone since Peter Davison (or possibly Sylverser McCoy.) The problem is, he came into the story at a point when the Doctor had to be a badass. He gets these really great lines but does not (IMO) deliver them with convincing intensity. I can believe that Christopher Eccleston saying this line, or David Tennant, but when Matt Smith says it feels to me like a little kid taking credit for something his big brother did.
