Washington (ANI): David Tennant has topped a poll of the U.K's most popular Doctor Who stars in the sci-fi show's 46 year history. The Scottish actor, who has played the role of Time Lord in the cult BBC series since 2005, won almost 26 per cent of votes from readers of Doctor Who magazine.
Tennant took over the role from acclaimed star Christopher Ecclestone and his five-year run, which ends in 2010 when newcomer Matt Smith takes over, is the viewers' favourite. "I am so proud of this," Contactmusic quoted Tennant as saying.
Tom Baker and Jon Pertwee are among other actors who have played the famous character. There have been 11 incarnations of the Doctor, including Smith, since the show first aired in 1963.
