Is El Reg going to be updating its playmobil collection to ensure that it can continue to recreate events of special interest?
There already exist Doctor Who action figures but who wants anatomically correct when you get can six inches of chunky plastic? Yes, the Time Lords – or two at least – are coming to Playmobil. Doctors 4 and 11, AKA Tom Baker and Matt Smith, have been cast in rounded plastic complete with joy-joy smiles and fingerless grippy …
Q: who is the best Doctor (pre-2005)
A: [grunt] Baker [/grunt]

Malcolm Tucker Peter Capaldi, Colin Baker suffered some pretty awful scripts BUT in any ranking system, there is a first and a last place and my comment above therefore stands.
I really got into the way Eccleston portrayed the Doctor. He distilled the character down to it most basic elements and everything about his version conveyed that from the acting to the clothing. From the pre-reboot days, I enjoyed Pertwee most and am reminded of him every time I watch an episode of Gotham.
indeed. When Gotham has run its course, I hope there is a conveniently timed opening for a new Doctor. Sean Pertwee would, at least in MY opinion, make an excellent Doctor. The gruffness of Ecclestone and Capaldi, tempered by the panache and man-of-action from his father's portrayal of the titular character.

It's even harder to classify Colin Baker or Sylvester McCoy as the "worst doctor" once you've listened to some of the amazingly good Big Finish audio productions. Of course, the visual effects budget is unlimited in an audio setting, so that allows the writers a bit more leeway in their stories.
