Who's The Favorite Who? David Tennant and Tom Baker Tie for Favorite Doctor, while Rose is the Favorite Companion
NEW YORK, Aug. 5, 2013 -- Well, it's official, and Peter Capaldi has some pretty big shoes to step into starting next year. How daunting it must be to take over a role that 11 other men have filled - some for a short time and some for years - while at the same time taking on a British icon celebrating its Fifty Year Anniversary this year. And, while each Doctor must make the sonic screwdriver their own, they each take something from the men who embodied previous incarnations – or rather, regenerations – of the Doctor.
So, who should Peter Capaldi draw inspiration from? Among those who have ever watched Doctor Who, the favorite Doctor is actually a tie between the tenth Doctor, David Tennant (16%) and the fourth, Tom Baker (16%), followed by the eleventh and outgoing Doctor, Matt Smith (7%).
