      I beg to differ, while Tom Baker and Christopher Eccleston were great, David Tennant was the best Doctor ever!!!

      "My" Doctor was Jon Pertwee - I must have been about 11 when Tom Baker took over and loved him too, but it's your first love that sticks. Have to say Christopher Ecclestone and David Tennant have both wowed me considerably. The New series is/are (?) definitely an event and so different from the old longer series with cliff-hangers that left us with no nails left on either hand

      The Book Depository is so cool for arranging this competition! My granddaughter is obsessed with Dr Who, and the 4th doctor in particular. She owns a lot of classic DVDs :) How I would love to win this for her!

      I was born in England in 1961 and have been an avid Dr Who fan through all the years since although I have lived in Australia for forty six of them. I have managed to infect my three 'children' with the same obsession. We live in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia but my eldest daughter Annie and I were lucky enough to visit the UK in 2008 and saw the amazing Dr Who exhibition in Cardiff. Tom Baker is her favourite doctor she says his voice makes her swoon so I'm sure Annie in particular would love this prize and as she turns twenty one soon it would be a very special and memorable gift. Thanks for the opportunity, I'd give you a jelly baby but I've run out!

      They say you always remember your first Doctor. Mine was Tom Baker, I was 9 in 1974. I began to watch Dr Who through all my teenage years. It was probably the beginning of my love of SciFi both books and TV and my eternal geekhood. I am still watching Dr Who, read the books, and have listened to some Dr Who audio books as well. This prize would not be wasted if I won it. I would treasure it!

      Cool competition guys. My parents were avid watchers of Doctor Who which is where my brother and I got our obsessions from. My husband and I love watching the new ones now too. Can't wait for the new season to come out.

      Sorry Ed, here is the retort from the back. The best Doctor was Christopher Eccleston; certainly the best with a Greater Manchester accent at least.....
