    I know everyone says it, but I like #4, aka Scarf Doctor.

    Care for a Jelly Baby?

    Name your favorite!

    Yeah, you youngins lol

    My Oma hates the current doctor. It's his last season, though.

    Do you think they'll ever have a female doctor?

    They did have a female master last season or the season before.

    Yeah, Tennant as my favourite might have a lot to do with the fact that I started watching the series when he was The Doctor. ;)

    I have nothing against a female Doctor - but I have to admit, I'm starting to lose faith in the writers. I really wanted to like Capaldi (and I do, as an actor) but I've felt myself gradually getting more and more bored as the show continues.

    This season is a lot better than the last two, but I agree something is missing.

    I've watched some brief bits of the old Doctor Who...like when the Doctor first explains why it's a police box.

    I read a few Doctor Who books when I was growing up, but didn't know how insanely big and popular the franchise was until I picked up a DVD with David Tennant series and watched it with my brother and sister. Then we were hooked! However, I tried watching a few of the older ones and just couldn't get into it. I would like to find some books again, though - I remember having fun reading them.

    One of my fondest memories as a child was watching old Doctor Who episodes on PBS.

    The older ones are very, very cheesy, but the Fourth Doctor still holds his charm. He actually had a cameo in one of the new shows.

    Are they still writing Doctor Who books? I remember they had a role playing game too - I played a session once at a gaming con.

    I'm not sure about new books - for now I'm just looking to see if I can get copies of the New Adventures series, which were published from about 91 to about 97.

    Dr #4 of course! He was also the legless captain rum in black adder II

    mouth never had to chew through the side of a ship
    to escape the dreadful spindly killer fish."

    They're quite delicious!

    I grew up on Tom Baker, but, Matt Smith just kind of grew on me. He reminded me of Tom Baker's doctor, but, more and much less, mature.

    Yeah, more refined in a way.

    I'm still waiting on a female doctor. I bet it's coming.
