Well it is one of the greatest UK shows of all time after all, not to mention the longest running sci-fi series (for Star Trek it's the franchise rather than actual series, in case you're wondering...)
He was simply the best. I loved the humour in his whole performance. I've never seen the really old ones, but I remeber Sylvester McCoy and the guy in the cricket whites, but it's never really grabbed me until Christopher was the Doctor!

I didn't really like him that much *dodges flying objects* I dunno. I think I just like the way Tom played the Doctor too much... Oh and Sylvester McCoy was good - I've met him! ;D Well I was there when my b/f did at least, LOL! And we met Colin Baker and Katie Manning as well - all three were really nice Too bad Tom Baker couldn't have been there though (Dr Who convention thing that was held here a couple of months ago).
I grew up watching Tom Baker, repeatedly and he was my favourite. I adored Tennent, Love Matt Smith, I think he will be remembered as a great Dr but out of the current three, Ecclestone. He really revitalised the Dr's role brought in a change of direction and I was gutted he only stayed around for 1 season. In fact I remember yelling at the tv when DT appeared on screen as the new Who. I was not impressed, lol. From memory my words were 'who the bleep is this pretty boy they've brought in to attract the younger viewers'.
Then the abc in Oz showed Blackpool and Casanova...and I fell in lust again. So fickle

To be honest I haven't cared much for the new series. It just... I dunno. A lot of things about it really annoy me >_>
I want to see more of Tom Baker and Sylvester McCoy. They're probably my favourite doctors at the moment And Ace is the best companion Although Leela was pretty damn awesome too. I like the ones who kick butt and don't run away screaming... or fall in love with the Doctor
I've heard Matt Smith has made a decent Doctor though, but it sounds as if crazy plot/writing has made the current series less enjoyable for some people. Steven Moffatt did well with his comedy shows and Sherlock, but Dr Who doesn't need a series long story arc, does it? (and River Song... Go away please >_< )
But each to their own I guess It's good that the new stuff has encouraged some people to check out the classic series (A couple of my new friends have done just that - and I find it really interesting that one of them is a mad 8th Doctor fan...)
