Doctor Who (the classic era), is one of those unique programmes – where the show can be split into different era’s. Be it a new Doctor, change of direction or production staff. Means that everyone may have – a differing favourite.
If you weren’t there, watching from the very start – in 1963. There is the incarnation of the Doctor, with whom you grew up watching. Also, the version of the Doctor – with whom you most identify with.
Or maybe, you are a younger fan of the classic series; coming to Old Who – many years after it had ended – and have the benefit of being able to review the whole era.
You maybe discovered your favourite Doctor, by watching VHS tapes, DVD – or Blu-ray releases of an era – prior to your own.
For instance, I grew up through the 80’s and remember watching Davison, Baker and McCoy eras. However, the Doctors with whom I most related, was; Tom Baker and Jon Pertwee. Only from the newly released (late 80’s) VHS tapes, which I used to collect and watch.
So for me, when looking at the 80’s era (Davison, Baker and McCoy). I liked them all (in different ways) but really, I would have liked to have grown up, watching the 70’s era of Pertwee – [Tom] Baker era.
Who was your Doctor or Doctors?
