Introducing The Doctor

Over the last 47 years there have been eleven Doctors, all with distinct personalities and varying degrees of popularity. But all of them had to start somewhere and so our latest poll has been to find out who has the best introductory story. Here are the results:

The Twin Dilemma got 0% of the votes (Sixth Doctor)
Time and the Rani got 0% of the votes (Seventh Doctor)
Robot got 1% of the votes (Fourth Doctor)
The Power of the Daleks got 2% of the votes (Second Doctor)
Spearhead From Space got 4% of the votes (Third Doctor)
Doctor Who TVM got 6% of the votes (Eighth Doctor)
Castrovalva got 7% of the votes (Fifth Doctor)
Rose got 12% of the votes (Ninth Doctor)
An Unearthly Child got 13% of the votes (First Doctor)
The Christmas Invasion got 15% of the votes (Tenth Doctor)

But winning this round, with 40% of the total votes cast is The Eleventh Hour, the first story of Series 5 which introduced the Eleventh Doctor.

The Doctor has regenerated into a brand new man, but danger strikes before he can even recover. With the TARDIS wrecked, and the sonic screwdriver destroyed, the new Doctor has just 20 minutes to save the whole world - and only Amy Pond to help him.


  1. Wow, I'm really surprised that Tom's only came 9th :O

    Great to see An Unearthly Child so close to Tennant's first outing; 10 isn't in TcE a great deal but he does have that amazing speech which cemented him in role perfectly for me :)

    I'm not surprised that TEH won thou, it was a fantastic script than won many, many doubters over to a new Doctor. I think Smith had a very hard job in his first outing, much like Davison in his day following Tom, yet both managed to win the audience over pretty quickly.
