Chatterbox: Pudding's Place
I love Doctor Who like I love my brother, maybe more (only sometimes XD).
I have spent countless hours trying and failing to explain to my brother how amazing the series is, and why I watch it religiously. The only thing he understands is that when either the Wheeping Angels, or the Silence are involved, run from the room and don't look back.
I on the other hand love it and have watched almost every episode multiple times. Though I get it all from Netflix so I have yet to see most of the specials which I really want to see, especialy the one where the 10th Doctor regenerates and becomes the 11th Doctor.
In my opinion the 9th Doctor was bloody awful. I just can not watch any episodes containing the 9th Doctor because he is not at all what I imagine the Doctor as. Because no matter which appearance the Doctor takes on he always has the same general personality. The 9th Doctor just didn't have that.
The 10th Doctor was in my opinion the best. I love David Tennant and I think he was the perfect Doctor. He was such an amazing actor as well. He could play all of the Doctor's personalities extremely well. He got down the perfect amount of self love, as well as self-loathing though it isn't as pronounced as it is with the 11th. He also plays hero and villan very well in that way the Doctor thinks of himself. For example in The Fire's of Pompeii he showed just the right amount of depressed Doctor when he was forced to let everyone in the city of Pompeii die, because it is a fixed point in time, and he cannot save them all. But with the help of Donna he does show a little more humanity, and a little less Time Lord when he saves the family that 'bought' his TARDIS. David Tennant also plays the Doctor's mix of humanity and Time Lord very well in his first episode as the Doctor when the 10th spared the Sycorax leader's life after he won the duel, but then sent him falling to his death after declaring that he didn't give second chances. I also love the way he played fatherly in the episode The Doctor's Daughter.
The 11th Doctor is second best. I love Matt Smith's quirky Doctor. The 11th has three general personality traits and Matt Smith potrays them perfectly. As said by the Dream Lord in s2e5 'Tall handsom hero, 'leave her alone' very intimidating, very impressive', as well as his quirky personality where he just rambles on and on about things no one can understand because he's so much more intelligant than everyone else I just love how he does that, along with his bowtie. His third pronounced personality trait being very self involved. It's most obvious when in the episode The Impossible Astronaut when he says, "I'm being extremely clever up here and there's no one no one to stand around looking impressed! What is the point in having you all!"
Whoops rambling, sorry. I just love Doctor Who!
