DAVID Ten­nant has been named Bri­tain’s favourite ever Time Lord be­fore Doc­tor Who’s 50th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions. The Scot played the time-trav­el­ling Doc­tor be­tween 2005 and 2010 and has topped a poll by Ra­dioTimes.com to find view­ers’ most beloved in­car­na­tion of the cult TV fig­ure. He gained 56 per cent of the vote, fol­lowed by cur­rent Time Lord Matt Smith, who steps down later this year to make way for the new Doc­tor, Peter Ca­paldi. In third was Tom Baker, who played the char­ac­ter from 1974 to 1981, fourth went to Christo­pher Ec­cle­ston, who only lasted one run when the show was re­booted in 2005. The top five was rounded out by 1960s Doc­tor Who Pa­trick Troughton. Mean­while Ten­nant’s side­kick, Bil­lie Piper, was named as best com­pan­ion, fol­lowed by Elis­a­beth Sladen and Cather­ine Tate.
