I loved it in 2005 when Christopher Eccleston was The Doctor but after that the episodes just got weird and the new actors weren't nearly as good. Every now and then there's some really great episodes like the city of weeping angels but I'm not nearly as interested in it as I used to be.

I didn't like how depressed Eccleston always was, Tennant is pretty good, and Smith had a lot of episodes with really creepy aliens (example: Night Terrors with those dolls)

source: seen series 1, 5, 6 and halfway through 2.

Actually that's a big part of why I loved Eccleston as The Doctor. When you look at his background, The Doctor as a character is a former soldier mourning the loss of his entire species as well as the atrocities he was responsible for during the war. To cope he tries to use humor and exciting situations to distract him but when the time comes he can immediately switch back to the serious super soldier that he had to be in order to survive the time war. Quite frankly I don't know of anyone better suited to play that role.

I don't know, a disembodied voice crying out "are you my mummy" still rings in the night if you're listening because that episode was awesome and frightening. Personally I consider that episode way creepier than anything involving the weeping angels.

I agree. Smith did have a lot of episodes with weird aliens. Tennant was awesome, but Smith is still my favorite

I have heard that when later presented with a mask, the Doctor repeats that phrase, can't wait to see that episode.

I have one question, how does Rose not realize that Mickey's Auton duplicate is plastic?

btw, ALLONS-Y

I'm personally in love with Tennant as the doctor. He just has this manic energy, but more restraint than Smith. Smith also has this self loathing/sociopathic tendency which can make his character oddly unappealing. Also don't care much for him and River Song. (Although I adored Amy and Rory).

Eccleston is horribly underlooked in my opinion, because the writing of his season had a lot of rocky points. But what he brought to the role was fantastic.

I have lots of Doctor Who feelings, and everyone should take a watch.

David Tennant was the best. But Matt Smith has grown on me. And Amy and Rory have been the best companions. Can't wait for the X-Mas Episode.

It might have something to do with the general "Doctor-rule", which simply states that the first doctor you get to know, will be your favourite one. It is of course not universally true, but many did get into Doctor Who around Tennant's time, and will think he is the better of them all.
I, for one, liked Eccleston better, while my siblings enjoy Smith more, as he was their first.

Anyway, a wonderful and rather special series. It has some interesting themes and all things considered, it has aged well during the past 49 years. Especially with the new series, which has attracted a lot of new fans.

Even though Smith was my first, I think I like Tennant better.
