[profile] sassyscot pointed me towards this travesty on the Torygraph website.

For the avoidance of doubt, the correct order in a chart like this should be:
  1. Colin Baker

  2. Circa 60 other actors, including Peter Cushing, Joanna Lumley, Arabella Weir, Derek Jacobi and Mark Gatiss

  3. David Tennant
Poor form at the Torygraph, given that their article didn't even mention the best actor to play the role. Still, what does one expect from a rag like that?

ETA: as Andrew quite correctly points out in the comments The Torygraph article is even more of a travesty than I thought because it calls itself "the top ten time Lords" and yet all of the entries are for the doctor. Whither Anthony Ainley, Lalla Ward, Timothy Dalton, Don Warrington, etc.etc.etc.?

Urgh Tennant is not the greatest. He is far from the greatest. Your chart is far more accurate :D

While I have the same completely biased reason for liking Pertwee as the author does, otherwise that list has terrible, terrible problems. Tennant Schmennant.

That's just awful. To do a top ten *anything* where there have only been eleven of that, just to deliberately leave out one of them in a "ha ha, I am funny" way, is just nasty whoever they leave off, but especially when it's Colin who takes that stuff more personally than most.

However, your list is incorrect. It wasn't a list of the best Doctors, but of the best Time Lords, so you have to also put Roger Delgado, Anthony Ainley, Peter Pratt, Geoffrey Beevers, Bernard Horsfall, Bernard Horsfall again, Lalla Ward, Mary Tamm and about a thousand others.

POSSIBLY Tennant comes above the bloke who played the Castellan in The Five Doctors. Possibly...

Even if we're sticking with Doctors, and specifically TV stuff that everyone accepts as canon (so not the Comic Relief/Children in Need spoofs), they've forgotten Michael Jayston :(
