Pertwee was the best Doctor, the Brigadier was the best companion, Delgado was the best villain. That’s really all there is to say on the matter.

Pertwee. lol, nope.

Baker was best, followed by Tennant. Jury’s still out on Smith, though.
I do agree, Brigadier was the best companion.

I sincerely hope this doesn’t devolve into an “X is best doctor” thread.

Thank you. Sincerely. From the bottom of my heart. I just watched 3 Guys 1 Hammer and I needed something to take my mind off the sheer inhumanity I just endured.

Pertwee the best? Not so sure. I rather liked Tom Baker and Davison, but then again, those were the Doctors I grew up watching.

I’m going to have to say Donna was my favorite companion though. Her personality and her chemistry with the Doctor was by far my most favorite. Most of his companions in the past and present strike me as bland. Only a few really stood out.

I’d say Arthur Darvill as Rory Williams is a close second for that best companion spot to me…. He is the best thing on the show right now, as much as I may love Smith’s Doctor. On that note, Smith is my Second Favorite Doctor. He’s a great actor, and Steven Moffat has been writing some kickass stuff for him.

I say Pertwee is the best because he’s the most active and fun doctor. He tends to be more willing to defend himself than many of the others. I love most of his storylines a lot as well, Inferno and The Daemons are really some of the best television I’ve ever seen. Also, you can’t match The Green Death for pure ridiculous Doctor Who fun. I love the Brig because he’s also in most of Pertwee’s stuff as well, and he seems to react to all the craziness in a more believable way than most. He’s also a major badass too, so that helps a lot.

“Also, you can’t match The Green Death for pure ridiculous Doctor Who fun.”

I can. It’s called Curse of the Fatal Death, and it is amazing.

Well, part of why I like Green Death so much is it isn’t trying to be ridiculous, it just sort of happened.

I have never seen Doctor Who, but it looks like something I’d like. Any particular series you guys would recommend, and do you know where I can find episodes of it online?

Well, Netflix, if you have it, has all of the new series stuff that has gone to DVD, and a lot of the old series stuff as well. Like I said earlier, The Green Death, Inferno, and The Daemons are personal favorites, though maybe not great introductory stories. I’d say the new series stuff is nice and accessible, so probably start at season one, two or five, since whenever there is a doctor transition nowadays it becomes a jumping on point for the show.

Also, me on this thread:
Today, everybody gets Karma! Just this once, Everybody gets Karma!

I don’t have Netflix. ;_;

If anyone else knows where I can find it, let me know. It looks like YouTube has nothing but trailers, and if BBC hosts episodes on their site, I think it may only be for a little while after they air like what [adult_swim] does. Also, which series had the “don’t let me eat pears!” scene? I’ve seen it floating around lately, and I’m wondering if it’s at a jumping-on point because it’s a funny scene and it really piqued my interest in the show. Also, this:

God, I know. What really puzzles me though, having watched a fair amount of Torchwood myself (Two seasoons) is that people apparently like Ianto. The show itself is… decent. When it’s good it’s good, but otherwise it can really suck.

Ah the pears…I’m pretty sure that’s where the Doctor leaves instructions for his companion, martha, as he’s going to forget who he is for a while (not a spoiler). I remember it was a two part episode set in WW1 with Scarecrows.

That was one o f my favourites. Especially the monologue at the end…

As I started watching Dr.Who with Christopher Eccleston, I can’t really say much on previous doctors, but David Tennant has always been brilliant for me.

EDIT: The family of blood is the episode name, I’m sure

Saw this, and knew I had to post it:

Enjoy.

Wow, Jackie is slightly less annoying somehow. I’m impressed.

@Logic Hah, nice image. It’s from one of the later episodes of “The chase”, right? Man, that story was pretty awesome, if only for the part where Frankenstein’s Monster picks up a Dalek and then just slams it down on the ground. Of course, it was really incoherent as well…

Doctor Who is annoying, because it never lasts long enough. After a few weeks it just ends with a cliffhanger, and says that the doctor will be back next Christmas. Why can’t he just have a long, good series?!
