How many times have we seen it: "All the Doctors, Ranked Best to Worst" (or "Worst to Best")? Every fan will have their own preferences, and that's as it should be; different strokes for different folks, and all that. But to try to codify any one viewpoint by publishing it for the world to see makes no sense to me at all.
I mean, what can one possibly hope to accomplish? Unless your goal is to get people arguing with you on the Internet (and I'll grant that for some, there appears to be no greater pleasure), you can't win. No matter who the article writer's personal #1 turns out to be, somebody's gonna come away pissed. "They call that idiot 'best'?" "How could you rank my fave at #5?" At best, you find the one or two other fans who are in complete agreement with your opinions of every Doctor; at worst, you get death (or other) threats.
Instead of trying to do something so controversial (and, frankly, impossible—not only do my opinions change from day to day, but it's kind of like choosing your favorite child/pet/other loved one), I thus thought I'd spend a little space sharing my thoughts on why each Doctor is awesome in his own way. Though I'm sorry—if you want to see either Peter Cushing's version or "the War Doctor" discussed, you'll have to peruse a different blog (although that could be a different post; stay tuned).
