How is Donna even worthy of being in the equation?!

Oh wait! Different actress and her character would have been palatable.

Assuming you meant those as mathematical signs (10th Doctor Greater Than 9th Doctor), etc, then I lament that you are not quite perfectly wrong. Because if you were perfectly wrong I'd ask your advice on stocks.

My order for New Who would be:

11th > 9th > 10th* > Donna > Rose > Amy > Martha

Though Amy definitely is #1 if going by things other than character!

Disagree:

10th Doctor > 11th Doctor > Amy Pond > Rose Tyler ≥ Martha Jones > 9th Doctor > Donna Noble

I really liked Rose, and didn't think I was going to rank anyone above her, but there's something about Pond that puts her above. Maybe time will move her down some, but she's up there for now.

My doctor list is:
Pertwee => Tennant => T. Baker => Eccleston => Troughton => Smith => Davidson => McCoy => Hartnell => McGann => C. Baker

How sick was I of Rose Tyler by the end of her run?
Quite thoroughly.

Regarding Catherine Tate, I've never understood how nerds, the usual demographic for Doctor Who here in the States, could ever complain about how a particular actor or actress looks.

I enjoyed the character of Donna Noble, and I thought Ms. Tate did a fine job with it. Donna knew it wasn't to be in the long run and took what she could get. Some of the barbs she threw at the Doctor were hilarious.

We've been watching all the dvds in order via netflix. In the early Tom Bakers right now, but had to go back and fill in some holes with the recent releases.

Zoe and Liz seem to be underrated. I like Jo much more now and still think Sarah gets way too whiney at times.

I guess I pretty much like 'em all now, although some lousy PBS stations have left a good chunk of Davison and everything up to the first hiatus unseen by us. I really would like to see a few more Troughton eps miraculously recovered.

This new chick has to be positively scrawny in real life to look that thin on camera.... Haven't seen the new series yet either, it'll be a while with all the boardgaming going on.

I have zero problem with how she looks. Her character was awful. Just the Runaway Bride was bad enough - I was relieved when it turned out that she wasn't going to really be the Doctor's new companion. Only to have the torture delayed a series.

She was the Doctor's punishment during his period of self-loathing for breaking the hearts of Rose and Martha. She was largely useless and her ending, tragic as it was, was nowhere near worth suffering through a series of her.

I like Donna. (I just finished the penultimate episode of Season 4 right now.) I like the fact that unlike Rose and Martha, she isn't all lovesick and pining after the Doctor all the time.

I was also not that crazy about "The Stolen Earth," which felt like Stunt Casting gone horribly insane. We'll see if part two actually features the Doctor.


I liked Donna as well, I couldn't care less about Martha Jones, felt completely useless.

I like Amy Pond and her boyfriend/husband (what'shisface). Simply because I felt it was long overdue for a male companion. Sure Rose Tyler's (ex)boyfriend went along for a few jaunts, but really, I'm glad there's more then just some woman secretly hoping to get into the Doctor's trousers.

Sticking to the new show:

9th doctor > 10th doctor > Jack Harkness > Martha Jones > Amy Pond > 11th doctor > Donna Noble > Rose Tyler

Good god Rose was such an annoying Mary-Sue. I think the Doctor must have been weeping tears of joy when she got sucked through that portal.

Christopher Eccleston rocks it out over just about everyone who's been in the reboot. The fact he had such a short run remains one of history's greatest tragedies.

Series 5 has been quite Meh on the whole. Yeah, Amy's nice to look at, but I prefer a companion who has settings other than 'moxy' and 'slut'. Matt Smith's mostly a let-down after Tennant, though I do like the 'old man in a young body' thing that occasionally comes out of him.

It has to be said, though, that Doctor Who is the pizza of television; even the worst of it is enjoyable.
