2. David Tennant (Tenth Doctor)
No one was really sure if the revived Doctor Who would survive until Tennant took over and everything seemed to explode. David Tennant’s take on the Doctor was remeniscent of the past Doctors, while still giving his own spin on the character. He received criticism late in his run for the heavy romantic angle and the seemingly unending waterworks, but that was more shaky writing than Tennant himself. He is one of only two Doctors to unseat Tom Baker from the “favorite Doctor” poll in Doctor Who Magazine, and that’s something.
