Nerd Nite 1.2 – The Ultimate Doctor Who Showdown – Round 1

Ten go in! One comes out!

For Nerd Nite 1.2 I am going to settle once and for all who the best Doctor is, at least until Matt Smith becomes the Doctor starting April 4. In the spirit of March Madness I have constructed a bracket and have seeded the Doctors based on how many stories aired in their reign.

#1 – Tom Baker (Fourth Doctor 1974-1981) – 42 Stories
#2 – David Tennant (Tenth Doctor 2005-2010) – 36 Stories
#3 – William Hartnell (First Doctor 1963-1966) – 29 Stories
#4 – Jon Pertwee (Third Doctor 1970-1974) – 24 Stories
#5 – Patrick Troughton (Second Doctor 1966-1969) – 21 Stories
#6 – Peter Davison (Fifth Doctor 1981-1984) – 20 Stories
#7 – Sylvester McCoy (Seventh Doctor 1986-1989) – 13 Stories
#8 – Christopher Eccleston (Ninth Doctor 2005) – 10 Stories
#9 – Colin Baker (Sixth Doctor 1984-1986) – 8 Stories
#10 – Paul McGann (Eighth Doctor 1996) – 1 Story

Now, you vote. Argue, convince, rant in the comments below, but send your official votes to [email protected].

First up, brackets 1 and 2: Sylvester McCoy vs. Paul McGann and Christopher Eccleston vs. Colin Baker. I’ll be taking votes on these until noon on Sunday and then I’ll post the next round. To find out who makes the Final Four you will have to come to Nerd Nite 1.2 at the Teatro Zuccone this coming Wednesday, March 24 at 7:30.

Let the nerd fight begin!

I love voting but I must educate myself on the issues - I will have to come to Nerd Nite 1.2 - I also love anything March Madness that doesn't involve basketball.

That's why I provided links to refresh people's memories.  But primary viewing is best.  Many Doctor Who episodes from almost every era are available on Instant Watch on Netflix!

One can argue that Paul McGann had more than one episode.  He played the Doctor for two seasons, just not on TV.

I love that you're doing this, but I've only seen the new Who so I don't feel qualified to vote.  Also, I loved both Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant and it would be hard to choose between them.

Not helpful, I know.

I want to vote for Eccleston but Baker could be f'ng CRAZY! Chris never tried to choke Billie like Collin did to Peri. I'm just sayin'. And a clown suit can make people verrrrry nervous.

Just a reminder that I'm only taking votes for McCoy vs. McGann and Eccleston vs. Baker right now!  Votes for other brackets will be taken in the future.

I hope people are voting. Tamara and I have canceled each other out.

Talking smack in the comments is just that, Bev.  Votes are being tabulated at [email protected] and it's just chatter until I get votes there.  So far I've received exactly 6, but the results have been fairly unambiguous.

I just read over the description I copied and pasted from the event notice.  I don't know who thinks that the Teatro Zuccone is in West Duluth, but I'm pretty sure 222 East Superior is safely in the "downtown" area of Duluth, and a little on the east side if anything.
