doctor who top tenIn a recent Doctor Who Magazine poll 6,700 fans rated all 200 episodes of the TV series (both old and new). The results have been tabulated, and only four Doctors (of the ten) made the cut.

Tom Baker dominates the list with four episodes. Both David Tennant and Christopher Eccleston represent the new series with two episodes apiece. An interesting list, but I’ll have to strongly disagree with the somewhat surprising choice of #1 (but then again I’ve never been a fan of that particular Doctor).

You can see the full list after the break, or click here for more.

1. The Caves of Androzani (1984 – Peter Davison)
2. Blink (2007 – David Tennant)
3. Genesis of the Daleks (1975 – Tom Baker)
4. The Talons of Weng-Chiang (1977 – Tom Baker)
5. The Empty Child (2005 – Christopher Eccleston)
6. Human Nature (2007 – David Tennant)
7. Pyramids of Mars (1975 – Tom Baker)
8. City of Death (1979 – Tom Baker)
9. The Robots of Death (1977 – Tom Baker)
10. Bad Wolf (2005 – Christopher Eccleston)

    While I’m not surprised Tom Baker got all sorts of mention on this list, I’m shocked by the #1. “Caves of Androzani” over “Earthshock”? What about the first “Daleks” story with William Hartnell? While we’re at it, why no Pertwee on this list? He had some amazing episodes during his reign.
