IMO The good Doctor has the best rogues gallery of any hero apart from Batman.

However which is your favourite?

I'd rank them like this.

1/ The Daleks: Easily on a par with Godzilla, Dracula or Frankenstein as a great monster. Everything about them is perfect IMO. Their design is a work of art. It has no human features, its the only completely alien in all of sci fi. Also their personality is simple, yet effective which is true for many classic monsters. Zombies for instance just want to eat people. That's fine it works, its scary, and you don't mind how many of them die as a result. Similarly the Daleks just hate and want to kill everything because they are evil, it works.

2/ Davros: One of the greatest mad scientists in anything. I love Davros because he is so loud, hysterical and fucking horrible! There are no shades of grey whatsoever to his character its brilliant.

3/ Cybermen: They have been worfed quite badly over the years, but they are an inspired idea and when used right, they are actually the scariest villains.

4/ The Master: Again much like the Cybermen he's been misused and humiliated over the years, but when used right he is a brilliant example of the archenemy trope.

5/ The Great Intelligence: The Web of Fear is an all time classic IMO and I liked the way the GI was a bit more mysterious and creepy than other enemies.

The Cybermen were my faves in classic Who but are absolutely fucking awful in the new series. Then again, that pretty much applies to all of them. Wink

Ricardo Montobawhatever
Star Trek II
The preacher from the poltergeist sequels even though the sequels themselves sucked
Colin Baker
Bruce Springsteen

Colin Baker was an excruciating failure as DW, routinely ranked dead last in fan polls and widely considered the start of the careening path to cancellation a few years later.
The best that can be said for it is that the idea behind the Sixth Doctor's unlikeable character wasn't terrible; but the actual presentation was not just terrible, but toxic.
JNT gives us an extreme Doctor, in the way that Rob Liefeld comics, Poochie from the Simpsons, and Mountain Dew Code Red are extreme: A crude version of the good stuff that equates being louder with being more awesome.
The obnoxiousness of the Doctor's personality might have worked better if they hired someone who could actually act, but all the audience got was horrible OTT pantomiming flaring nostrils.
