To me Dr Who will always be William Hartnell. I didn't remember him very well as I was a bit too young, but it was his series that introduced the Daleks and they scared the begeebers out of me. The way people turned into skeletons when EXTERMINATED was awesome. It worked oddly well in black and white and perhaps less so in colour.
Anyway, if the world no longer needs a male Dr Who then are men doomed? Perhaps the Daleks weren't needed after all to destroy mankind. Love the boots though.
