If you love Doctor Who, you have a favorite Doctor. While some prefer the dark humor of Nine, and others enjoy more retro Doctors, competition is fiercest between the two most recent incarnations: David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor and Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor. Figment is stepping in to settle this feud once and for all with the definitive Doctor Showdown!
Round 1: Who Wore it Best?
It’s tough to choose between two Doctors who are also iconic dressers. Is it Ten’s Converse/trench/3D glasses combo? Or Eleven’s fez/bowtie/suspenders look? In the end, we have to say Eleven takes it. His clothes look like they could be on a mannequin at Urban Outfitters. Super hipster chic.
Round 2: Best Catchphrase
No contest, this has to go to Ten. “Allons-y” is way more iconic than Eleven’s underutilized “Geronimo.” Now, we’re tempted to give this category to River Song, because “Spoilers” has become the siren song to all Who-fans since her first appearance at The Library.
Round 3: Best Companion
Ten’s got more air time on Eleven, and that may help contribute to his victory. One on one, you could argue that Amy Pond could take any of Ten’s companions, but there’s no way she can beat Rose AND Donna AND Martha AND Jack AND K9 AND Sarah Jane AND all the other assorted friends and family who fell in with the Who crew.
Round 4: Best Hair
This might be the most controversial call we’ve ever made, but we’re choosing Matt Smith’s swoop over David Tennant’s spikes. Don’t hurt us.
Round 5: Best Acting
Guys, Matt Smith won a BAFTA for his performance of The Doctor. I don’t want to defer to the British Academy, but we’re gonna hafta go Eleventh Doctor, which means…
The Eleventh Doctor wins!
