Doctor Who’s David Tennant wins favourite Doctor poll – Matt Smith, Tom Baker 2nd and 3rd
David Tennant always was a fan favourite and even though he hasn’t starred in Doctor Who in just over two years, it seems that viewers have not forgotten the Scottish actor.
The new dad has come out top on a new poll, in which American sci fi fans voted for their favourite Doctor Who star. The poll was conducted by Entertainment Weekly and you may be surprised to discover that not only did Tennant receive the most votes, but he actually received more than all the other stars of the BBC show put together.
The Fright Night actor of course held the role of the titular time lord 2005 until 2010 and was replaced two years ago by Matt Smith.
Tennant attracted 59% of the vote, with his successor Smith coming in second place with 16%. Tom Baker was the fourth incarnation of the Doctor, which he played from 1974 to 1981 (making him the longest-serving actor to play the part). He received 12% of the vote.
Christopher Eccleston was responsible for the reboot of the franchise in 2005 and even though he only stayed for one series, he managed to finish in fourth place, with a respectable 8%.
William Hartnell, Peter Davison, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann shared the remaining five per cent of the vote between them.
The results suggest to us that many of the voters were younger and perhaps more familiar with the new version of the hit sci fi show, than the old 70s and 80s episodes.
Not that we don’t love David Tennant…..in fact we think he’s our favourite too.
