    who should be my favorite Dr

    Post  Rickster on February 17th 2015, 1:20 pm

    I am hoping to do the 3rd annual Nerd Herd virtual races and this year the themes are Star Wars, Dr. Who, and Harry Potter. Now when you register for the race you are asked a question about the theme and a quote from your pick is printed on your bib. Now I can answer the Star Wars and Harry Potter but i dont know squat about Dr. Who so instead of answering with the i dont know/pick for me answer i decided to make this poll to see who i should pick.

    Here is a video showing the medals

    I watched the first episode of the "new" Dr. Who, and no more. Still, I voted War Dr. because it just sounds cool. geek

    At least you guys are trying! Very Happy

    Doctor Who 101

    1) This is a fairly small point, but important. The show's name is "Doctor Who". The word "Doctor" is always spelled out and never abbreviated. It is always capitalized.

    2) The lead character's name is "the Doctor". "Doctor Who" is a question, not a name. It ties into one of the central themes of the show, which is a quest for identity. Occasionally on the part of the Doctor, but mostly by his companions.

    3) Doctor Who is primarily a sci-fi morality play in which the ethical ramifications of one's actions are called into question. The action sequences and other razzle-dazzle are incidental to the main themes of the show.

    4) The Doctor is not meant to exemplify a type of savior, but is rather the ultimate expression of humanity. The Doctor is ultimately ethical because he bears the consequences of his own choices, allows others to bear the consequences of their own choices, and occasionally protects people from the consequences of choices made by themselves and others, paying the price himself as a type of parental figure.

    5) The philosophy of Doctor Who is always naturalistic and humanistic, but also always optimistic. The lesson is that things can and will get better, but that impetus for betterment comes from our own choices.

    6) The central conflict behind the War Doctor is that the Doctor has always viewed war as an unethical and inhumane practice, even in his conflicts with Cybermen, Daleks, and other Terminator precursors. That the War Doctor exists at all is a paradox that causes the 10th and 11th Doctors much anxiety. The 50th anniversary special "Day of the Doctor" tells his story.

    7) Every incarnation of the Doctor is slightly different, and thus every incarnation of Doctor Who is slightly different. If one Doctor doesn't grab you, skip a season and try again!

    You can't just say 'Classic Doctor' as if that's a single thing! I think the answer to your question is '4th Doctor', although I will accept 10th.

    Also:

    He was frequently credited as Doctor Who though, if anyone cares.




    *hides behind the sofa again before Paeter notices I only ever post to geek out about Doctor Who*

    Those are choices that the race registration offered

    Well, I would say that whoever came up with those choices is Mr Thick Thick Thickety Thickface from Thicktown Thickania, but they might not get that it's a Doctor Who reference and think I'm actually being rude, so I won't.

    Preposterous! I do not even know who Tom Baker is!

    Choosing a favourite Doctor is kinda like picking favourites between your kids. It's not easy.

    I guess personally my top candidates would be Three, Four & Ten, with Eight, Nine, Eleven and Twelve close runners up.
    I actually think 8 had the potential to be an amazing Doctor but he never got the chance. He made a weak-plotted movie shine, and he made an amazing short even better.

    Five and Six have yet to completely grab me, though I haven't seen much of either of their runs.

    Not sure if any of that is helpful.
