Yeah. But that's because you've been kinda cheated with Nu-Who.

You had five years of things jogging along pretty well under RTD. Then you had Moffat, who started strong but quickly lost his way, and you've ended up with the horror of the Chibnall era.

Fans who've been watching since the sixties... we understand what can happen when the show's run correctly.

Bill Hartnell was the Doctor. The one and only. Then along came Troughton, who became popular very quickly. He was succeeded by Pertwee, and he became the new gold standard. The show was more popular than it had ever been. No one could imagine anyone topping that. But Tom Baker strolled in and became the most iconic Doctor ever (Yes, even over and above Tennant). Peter Davison continued the success story.

Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy - like Capaldi - never really had a chance to shine.

But I guarantee you, if Capaldi had been given the same level of material Tennant had, he'd be the one you'd want back today.

Classic series fans have debates about who was the best Doctor, and out of seven actors they have five very strong contenders.

New series fans can't have that debate. Out of five actors, there's really only one candidate. And that's not the actors' fault, it's the showrunners'.




1. Too much time has passed for the classic actors. I would LOVE for Tom Baker to return but I doubt the BBC has the budget or desire to CGI de-age him.

2. Eccleston does not want to come back.

3. Tennant was very popular and had great stories.

Also his portrayal of Killgrave on Jessica Jones tells me that if they cast him as a more sinister version of the Doctor or even as THE MASTER that it would be a hit.

They've established that revisiting old favorite faces is possible when Doc 11 meets the Curator, and Doc Ten did abort a regeneration process to heal himself from a Dalek blast but remain as himself. So regenerating back into the appearance of Doc 10 but with an altered personality would be interesting

With the right directors, producers, writers.....
