  1. Comes as no surprise! David Tennant was the one who got me hooked on Dr. Who and he is still is the best of the doctors. I’ve watched the re-runs plenty of times and haven’t changed my opinion. David has also made some other excellent television shows, including the ‘Broadchurch’ series, but he will always be most loved as the Tenth Doctor – ood for you, David!
