David Tennant voted best Doctor Who as father-in-law Peter Davison comes bottom

David Tennant has been voted TV’s best Doctor Who in a new poll.

But the result could cause a dust-up in the Tardis at home.

Tennant’s father in law is ex-Time Lord Peter Davison who came bottom in the vote.

In a new survey, some 50,000 fans were asked to name their favourite Time Lord from the past 67 years of the BBC sci-fi show and it brought about surprising results.

Tennant – who played The Doctor from 2005 until 2010 – exterminated his rivals and scored the most votes with 10,518.

Running a close second was Jodie Whittaker – who is currently in charge of the Tardis – with 10, 423 votes.

In the third place came Peter Capaldi (8897 votes) which is a surprise since during his tenure between 2013 and 2017, ratings dropped to their worst since the show got rebooted in 2005.

In fourth spot was Matt Smith (7637 votes) who took on Daleks and Cyberman between 2010 and 2013.

And there was another shocker as Tom Baker – who was in the Tardis for seven years between 1974 and 1981 and is often called “everyone favourite Doctor” – only came fifth with 3977 votes.

RadioTimes.com carried out the survey.

The other placings were William Hartnell (6th), Paul McGann (7th), Christopher Eccleston (8th), Jon Pertwee (9th), Patrick Troughton (10th), Sylvester McCoy (11th) and Colin Baker (12th).

Poor Peter Davison – who was The Doc from 1981 to 1984 and whose daughter Georgia married Tennant – came in 13th and last place with just 351 votes.

Huw Fullerton from RadioTimes.com said: “Over a decade after he left the TARDIS behind, it’s clear David Tennant is still Doctor Who fans’ perfect 10! “

David Tennant is now appearing as the title character Dennis Nilsen in the new drama Des, which documents the killer's arrest and conviction.
