It's probably an old joke, but whatever.

Still it could be a humorous way to explain all the different Bond actors over the years. \:\)

LoL, well, I gotta admit, I've never heard or considered this one though I could easily imagine Bond with a sonic screw driver.

Well, I wonder if it's possible to contrast a Bond with a Doctor. For example (if that didn't make any since), maybe Sylvestor McCoy is like the Timothy Dalton bond..... erm I am going to try this anyway!

Sean Connery - Well heck, this is an easy one, Jon Pertwee durh!

George Lazensby
- Gosh, another EASY one, Paul McGhann since George only played Bond one time!

Roger Moore - This is getting easier than I thought. Tom Baker obviously as both have been in the role the longest and are perhaps still the most definitive versions.

Timothy Dalton - Hrm, well, going with Sylvestor McCoy still since Dalton just seemed odd as Bond to me as Sylv did as the Doctor! Of course they played their respective roles during the same years but oh well, the late 80's sucked hehe.

Pierce Brosnan
- Going with Peter Davison here. Similarities seem to be youth and prank.

Daniel Craig
- No one will agree with this though this whole list is probably to ridiculous anyways.... but going with Colin Baker. Both actors seem to share an unpredictable anger to the role.

This does of course mean that none of the NuWho Doctor's get to compare with Bond nor that clown, Patrick Troton (though I guess he's comparable enough to Dalton's Bond) but I guess I just prefer the classic series, damn.

Obviously, Bond is different incarnations of Rassilon. \:\-\)

You've seen 'The End of Time'?

Can't imagine bikini clad beauties swarming round the incarnation who appeared in 'The Five Doctors', though!

Patrick Troughton = David Niven, from the 1967 version of Casino Royale.

I'm not a Bond fan myself. Only ever seen Dr No and the original Casino Royale all the way through, so my question to you 007 experts out there is...

Do you think any of the Bond girls would have made good companions for the Doctor? If so, which ones and why?

Everyone gets old.

Besides, compare Davidson to Troughton. Regenerations sometimes don't turn out the way you'd like.

I am obviously no Bond expert (good call on Patrick Troton!), but man oh man, Jane Seymour would have made for an excellent River Song as well! Maybe Hallie Berry would be an ok companion as well?

In Bond order, as there’s less of them.

Not necessarily looking at chronology, looking more at themes in common.

This gives connections ranging from giant weird leaps of logic to the bleedin’ obvious:


Sean Connery=Tom Baker
Defined the role in the classic series.
Great deadpan delivery of one liners.
For many old school fans, the one true version.
(Arguably could be William Hartnell, but I think Baker eclipsed him in popularity in the fandom, and recognizability outside of it.)


George Lazenby=Paul McGann
Only one shot in the title role.
Better than the material they were given.
Story had levels of romance not seen before.
Probably would have been successful given more chances.


Roger Moore=Patrick Troughton
Proved the series could be successful with a replacement lead.
Lighter, and goofier than the original incarnation, with more sci-fi elements.
Added many features which would remain a staple of the franchise.
(Could be Jon Pertwee, as both their adventures were highly influenced by, but lighter and more gagety versions of, the early James Bond films)


Timothy Dalton=Colin Baker
Rougher, harsher, more violent version of the character.
Went back to source for portrayal. (Dalton-Novels/Baker-Hartnell’s disposition)
Tenure cut very short partially due to fan reception, but mostly due to behind the scenes issues.
(The latter applies to McCoy as well, but the in story stuff makes it Baker.)


Peirce Brosnan=Matt Smith
Defined the role for a later generation, on screen as well as on merchandise.
The series started to bring back many elements from the past, updated for modern times.
Newer fans familiar with classic version of the series, but may not have seen it as it’s “old fashioned.”
Present for an important anniversary story.
(A few years ago this would have been Tennant, but I think Smith’s popularity in the US and on the swag has passed him at this point.)


Daniel Craig=Christopher Eccleston
Restarted the franchise after dormancy.
Stories and individual are stripped down the basics.
Haunted and angry version of the character.
Um…very short hair?


Bonus Points:
David Niven=Rowan Atkinson
Appeared in an affectionate parody featuring many versions of their character.
Project worked on by some individuals with ties to the actual franchise.
Showed they could have done well as a serious version of the role.
Featured an actor as bearded villain who would have been awesome in cannon.
