David Tennant Tops Entertainment Weekly Poll

As part of the build up to series 7 of Doctor Who, US pop culture mag Entertainment Weekly asked their online readers to vote for their favourite incarnation of the Doctor.

The results are in and they are very clear: David Tennant has blown away the competition, winning the vote easily with a lead of 59%. His nearest rival, Matt Smith, came in at only 16%. Tom Baker and Chris Eccleston picked up third and fourth place respectively, while the remaining seven Doctors could only muster 5% of the vote between them.

Doctor Who is due to return to BBC America this autumn. Before then, BBC America will be showing four specially created documentaries weekly throughout August, starting this coming Saturday with The Science Of Doctor Who (9pm, 4th Aug. BBC America)
