The Ultimate David Tennant Character Poll - TV Winner Revealed
Over the past few months we've been asking fans to vote for their favourite David Tennant TV character as part of our Ultimate David Tennant Character Poll.
Thousands of votes were cast throughout the poll and today we can reveal that, perhaps unsurprisngly, David's most popular TV role is that of the Tenth Doctor in the long running BBC sci fi series Doctor Who.
David joined the show in 2005 as the Tenth incarnation of the Time Lord and went on to achieve global success with the part.
Over 4 years and 47 episodes David won critical acclaim, walking away from the show in January 2010 with an armfull of accolades including National Television Awards and a BAFTA Cymru. Fans too were won and his Doctor was voted the best ever by reader's of Doctor Who Magazine. In November 2009 the episode The Waters Of Mars gave BBC America their biggest ever ratings.
And in the UK over 10 Million people tuned in on 1st January 2010 to see the demise of David's Doctor as he regenerated.
The 23rd November 2013 saw the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who and marked the return of David Tennant to the TARDIS for a one of special episode. The episode was simulcast to over 75 countries worldwide and streamed live in to cinemas across the globe.
In May 2016 three new audio adventures starring David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor were released by Big Finish.
In second place was the villainous Kilgrave one of David's most recent TV roles, which saw him join the Marvel universe for the Netflix Originals series Jessica Jones as Jessica's evil nemesis. The biggest surprise of the poll was that one of David's most popular and critically acclaimed roles as DI Alec Hardy in the ITV drama Broadchurch was knocked out in the very early stages by his American counterpart Emmett Carver from the US remake, Gracepoint. Despite lasting just one season Emmett proved more popular with the voters than his UK original.
