William Harnell was the real scientific Doctor, short tempered, bombastic, self opinionated, "feather plucker" with a heart of gold that was well hidden.
Patrick Troughton bought some mirth and humanity into the roll which made the Doctor more acceptable, that is why I fanally voted for him.
After that the Doctors seemed to be "just part of the show" (that is my opinion).
Was Peter Cushing left of the list because he was a Dr Who? on film rather than a Dr Who? on tv?
Yes, I am one of the "very old men "
As one of the Old F@rts I just had to vote for Bill Hartnell. He had me quite terrified at times, more than the monsters in fact.
It was difficult making the choice as the technical standards were obviously much lower than later Doctors' episodes but there were two storylines that have stayed with me over the years. The first is the one with Peter Butterworth as another Time Lord and the second is the one where the Doctor and his companions were stuck in a nightmare dimension where most of the sets were just blank! Very unsettling.
Humax and Echostar receivers, Dragon, two dishes, one fixed 100cm dish pointing at Hotbird, and a 90cm motorised dish; plus a rubbish DVD recorder and cool DVD players, and lots of cables!! Oh, yeah, and a video recorder - best invention yet!!
