The best doctors of Doctor Who are as unique as the universe they inhabit, despite sharing certain personality traits and essentially portraying the same character through its bodily evolutions. The actors who portray the Doctor on Doctor Who are some of the chief reasons the show has ascended as one of the top cult TV series in history with the show also being recognized as one of the best Sci-Fi series of all time.

The eleven doctors of Doctor Who represent old-school actors like Jon Pertwee and Patrick Troughton, and newer actors who have used the Doctor character as a launching pad to bigger, equally awesome roles (David Tennant and Matt Smith). The greatest Doctor Who Doctors are the ones who handily abolish their enemies while forming a bond with the audience only an alien with a police box time machine possibly could.
