Over the last week we have asked you to vote for your favourite incarnations of the Doctor in our "Australia's Favourite Doctor" poll. Some found the process of ranking the different actors playing the Doctor easy, while others (including myself) felt it was like ranking their children from favourite to least favourite.
But now the votes are in and we can now announce that the winner, by a healthy margin, is: David Tennant.
The full list in order is:
1 David Tennant
2 Tom Baker
3 Peter Capaldi
4 Matt Smith
5 Christopher Eccleston
6 Jon Pertwee
7 Peter Davison
8 William Hartnell
9 Patrick Troughton
10 John Hurt
11 Paul McGann
12 Sylvester McCoy
13 Colin Baker
David Tennant and Matt Smith both had the same number of first place rankings, but more people placed Tennant in the 2nd to 4th positons than Smith. Interstingly they both scored the same number of voters plcing them in the bottom 4 positons. Only Patrick Troughton and Sylvester McCoy not being ranked as anybody's favourite Doctor, but both had some voters rating them as their 2nd Favourite.
All in all, I believe it shows that Doctor Who appeals to a broad range of Australians, with so many different opinions on what (or who) makes a good Doctor.
Thank you to all who voted and stay tuned for our Series 8 Favourite episodes, actors/ actresses, writers, etc poll COMING SOON!
Detailed report from the poll is included below, including the formula used to calculate placings:
