While I like adventures in space and time, my favorite run of Doctor Who took place at a time when he was exiled to Earth. Granted, it was a story fix to cope with budget issues, but Jon Pertwee’s depiction of The Doctor is still my all time favorite. The stories were a bit more on the science side at first, and introduced everyone to three of the best companions – Liz Shaw, Jo Grant, and Sarah Jane Smith (the longest-serving companion).
Pertwee commanded the screen whenever he appeared, and his Doctor’s wit and arrogance made each episode a joy to watch. Doctor One referred to him as a dandy, while Two called him Fancy Pants.Regardless, The Third Doctor is one I will always cherish.
Who is your favorite Doctor? Maybe you like Eleven, or perhaps Six is your thing. Some of you have even had the chance to meet Twelve and think he is the bee’s knees. Don’t be shy! Share your thoughts about your favorite Doctor in the comment section below!
