I've just come across this ranking article


Positions 9 and 6 should be the other way around
Positions 2 and 1 should be the other way around

I'd have to think a bit more about the others

Let the battle commence;)

I'd switch 4 and 1.
Then switch 9 and 5.

I might have to redo the whole list. I've spent the last few months watching classic Who on Britbox. I really liked 3 and I liked 8 more than I thought I would.

I'm probably in a minority, but it is all wrong to me. I didn't rate their 1 or 6 so they would be much further down the list. I'd keep their 12 at the bottom. I'd probably move their 9 to 1. However, what makes it so wrong for me is that they say 13 is in that position because one Season is not long enough to judge her, then they put McGann at 7, after only 2 hours of screen time?

That site is awful - I hate list sites where they put everything on a different page just to generate more click revenue. For that reason, I didn't even bother reading the article.

Terrible website practice from a very click baitey looking site. No thanks.

Me too :mad:

I always install uBlock Origin, switch to advanced user mode and block all third-party scripts and frames, although it works very well 'out-of-the-box'
Sometimes I have to allow through some scripts for a site to work eg jQuery, but once the site is working good enough, I save the rule and never have to bother again.

I also explicitly block Facebook, Twitter, Google domains unless I'm on their sites
It's amazing how much faster the web is without ads and trackers :)

It's not very intuitive but there are a few tutorials out there

I was going to post this last night but the site started to get all funny, so I gave up. :rolleyes:

I've only seen the modern Doctor Who and it's difficult to separate the Doctor from the overall quality of the episodes and series they're in.

I also think it's unfair to rank Jodie Whittaker after only one series, but then again, Christopher Eccleston (who I thought was excellent) only did one. I'm not aware of how many past Doctors did.
