I hate to be the moaning commenter of the day but isn't this poll a bit... redundant? Like, if I rank the Doctors : 9 < 10 < 11 < 12 < War, I already know who I'm going to vote for. And there's just so much I can say in the comment section to explain why I'm voting for John Hurt for the fourth time. Couldn't we speed up the process, like two polls a day for example? Then move on to the companions or Classic Who or whatever... I know you get a lot of unnecessary complains DWTV, I don't mean to be rude, but it seems like a shame to keep talking about the same five Doctors over and over again for weeks when we have such a large universe to talk about. Just a suggestion.

I'm going to surprise everybody and vote for Eleven.

I must say DWTV, those polls are much better. Not thirsty anymore? Peter, no question.

I love Nine but I will vote Matt Smith against anybody. Eleven. #NoTearsToday

1 week, 3 days ago on Doctor of the Decade: Rate the Tenth Doctor
@MrRazza is reporting you to the council! 1. Matt Smith - 10/10
2. Patrick Troughton - 10/10
3. Tom Baker - 10/10
4. Christopher Eccleston - 9/10
5. Peter Capaldi - 9/10
6. William Hartnell - 9/10
7. Sylvester McCoy - 8/10
8. David Tennant - 7/10
9. Paul McGann - 7/10
10. Colin Baker - 7/10
11. Peter Davison - 6/10
12. Jon Pertwee - 6/10
You know, I think Nine might win this poll. He's not many people's favorite (left too soon) but very few people hate him. Tennant and Smith will get a huge amount of 10/10's but also a huge amount of 1/10's. Capaldi has his detractors too because he's so different from what people expect now.

Gatiss confirmed for series 9 then? I think he'd be fine as showrunner. He's the most likely possibility after all. Only Chibnall and Whitehouse have a similar resume and Chibnall was rubbish on Torchwood.

If Love&Monster doesn't win this, I'm going to break something.
@TheElusiveWhovian True, but on the other hand, it means you get a very, very mixed show like series 1 and series 2.

@supermoff I didn't expect a Christmas Carol to be so divisive O_o even more divisive than Angels Take Manhattan or Death in Heaven!

@ilyootha They'd just argue 24/7, nothing would ever get done.
@The Finn is excited for audio Kate Stewart! I'm going to take an extreme example to explain how divisive stories and consistent series can work together. Imagine if series 2 was just about Fear Her and Love&Monsters. Each story on its own is divisive but the series is consitent(ly bad) according to the poll.
Wonderful article, supermoff! I'm curious, is there enough data to determine if people like/dislike Doctor-lite/Companion-lite episodes? I think it would be interesting to see which one people prefer.
@DaftDalek Victory of the Daleks is very good.
3 weeks ago on All 117 Episodes of the Revival Ranked By You
@10kcooper I didn't count Christmas Specials, I get : Series 4 - Series 5 - Series 8 - Series 1 - Series 3 - Series 6 - Series 7 - Series 2
@Grand Fenwick I agreed with you until you mentioned Courtney. She's one of the best child actors the show has had. Top5, easily
@TheBeast101 :( I don't know how people can love MOTOE but Cold War doesn't even get a 7...
@SonicTheHedgehogRules @Clara Bosswald @JoelNewton People complain about arcs, they complain when it's self-contained... I liked it that way. I don't want my Ponds to be sad and divorced for their last stories.
@SonicTheHedgehogRules @Clara Bosswald @JoelNewton I don't see why people hate it so much. Replace "divorce" with "break-up" and no one would be complaining. Not enough to bring the episode down for me. I love watching Eleven trying to get them to talk to each other.
@JoelNewton As someone who wants more from the Daleks than mindless shooting, Asylum of the Daleks had better plot, characters, concept and directing. Just my opinion of course
@Russell T Dalek I don't suppose we could do the same thing for Classic Doctor Who...? It would take ages but it would be fun. NO FACE-OFF though! You've had enough tears DWTV.
@TheTimeTraveller is excited for series 9 Because it was fun. Fun is baaaad. Fun For Children. Doctor Who should be Nolan Gritty. </rant>
@TheOncomingHurricane The Crimson Horror is amazing though :(
@Typo42 "Magic Carrots" The kid who plays Samaritan's avatar in Person of Interest is a great villain.

@TheOncomingHurricane @Oodkind What plot? Exterminating them all every series just to bring them back a year later?
3 weeks, 1 day ago on The Bottom 10 TV Stories of the Decade
@the666thdoctor Hugo-nominated, Emmy-nominated Mark Gatiss - how does he get work? Steven Moffat, Russel T Davies and the writing community all seem to agree he is talented. You don't have to like his episodes, but suggesting that he only gets work because he's friendly with Moffat is just rude to be honest.
@4sure Any story that gives me two Matt Smiths instead of one is okay in my book.
@TheOncomingHurricane @3rdDalektotheLeft - minion of D.O.C.T.O.R. My heart sank a little.
- Fear Her : 100% deserved. It's the Phantom Menace of Doctor Who. Shameful.
- Love&Monsters : This story deserves better. Sure, the last 15 minutes are utter garbage, but people seem to forget the first 30 minutes which were full of great characterization and performances.
- In the Forest of the Night : I don't like it, but 3rd worst, come on people! If only for "I don't want to be the last of my kind", it deserves to be a bit higher.
- The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe : Overall bad, but it's got a lot of saving graces. Matt Smith is great as the caretaker, Madge is wonderful, the last scene with the Ponds... Nowhere near bottom 5 in my opinion.
- The Curse of Utter Boredom... I mean the Blackspot! I like Amy with a sword as much as anyone else, but it's not enough to keep me awake. I agree with this one.
- The Idiot's Lantern : Deserves to be here.
- Daleks in Manhattan/Evolution of the Daleks : a lot of interesting ideas here, but the execution is painful... It's not in my bottom 10, but I understand why it's here.
- Night Terrors : I like it.....
- The Lazarus Experiment : 42 minutes of bad CGI running down corridors. Deserves to be lower.
- The Long Game : it's not great, by far Eccleston's least good story but it's nothing shameful though, I don't know what it's doing here.
Good. Fine. Whatever. WHEN DO YOU GET THE LICENCE FOR NUWHO?

@Benvenfold Yes. Yes. Yes. and Yes again.
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Your Top 20 TV Stories of the Decade
@Edoe @Baker Street has been a fan for 10 YEARS! Amy's Choice : 96th....
If I can suggest a few stories for NuWho fans:
- Enemy of the World : Troughton plays both the Doctor and the villain who happens to look just like him. Fast-paced with quite a lot of action, I think it's perfect for new audiences.
- The Invasion : The missing episodes have been animated so you don't have to listen to retcon. If you didn't like the series 8 finale, this might just be for you! (or if you did like the series finale, it might still be for you)
- The Tomb of the Cybermen : It's Matt Smith's favorite episode. It does belong to its time though, SJWs might have a heart attack watching it. Be warned.
Great article ! I truly love Troughton's Doctor, one of the greatest along Tom Baker and Matt Smith in my opinion.

How surprising! Did not see that coming. At all. Color me shocked.
Anyway, it's Day of the Doctor for me. Sally Sparrow VS. 13 Doctors... I like Sally a lot, but it's still a ridiculously easy choice.
Aww :( This news made me a bit sad... I wish he was still with us. What a brilliant Doctor he was!

Although I think The Day of the Doctor is indeed the superior episode, I'm voting for the Series 8 finale, as it deserved better than facing TDOTD.

Listen, easily. I just can't understand Mummy's popularity. It's bland and boring with the most underwhelming deaths ever put on screen.
I would have ranked Let's be Heroes a bit higher. It's just so catchy, it makes me want to dress like a princess and fight with a knight's sword at the same time. Just makes everything feels better.
