NEW Doctor David Tennant has an eager fan in Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe. He says of his Goblet Of Fire co-star: "David is a fantastic Time Lord." But which Doctor is a hit with other famous faces?

ANTHONY Head - a character called the Headmaster in the new Dr Who series: "Chris Eccleston was extremely good, but he was trying a little hard to be weird. William Hartnell didn't try. He was just weird. David Tennant just is the Doctor. When he turns on the charm and the humour, it's quicksilver, and then he'll turn on the steel."

ROBERTA Taylor, the Bill's Insp Gina Gold: "Peter Davison and Jon Pertwee are my favourites. I loved their fancy clobber, particularly Peter Davison's cricket outfit."

SCRAPHEAP Challenge presenter Robert Llewellyn: "It has to be William Hartnell. I'm old enough to have seen the very first episode, and it terrified the living daylights out of me. I was about seven and it was on a black-and-white nine-inch screen. He's the only Doctor as far as I'm concerned. All the others are fakes."

FAT Friends actress Lisa Riley: "The first Doctor I remember was Tom Baker, with the multi-coloured scarf, but he was much too abrupt. Peter Davison was a lot smoother."

DOWN To Earth's Denise Welch: "The best Doctor has to be Paul McGann, who played him in the movie."

POSH MP Boris Johnson: "When I was a nipper he was played by a chap called Tom Baker, and the whole thing was absolutely terrifying."

MIRROR columnist Richard Hammond: "Tom Baker was the one of my childhood, but Jon Pertwee was rather good, too. Baker made it bonkers. He was mad as a box of snakes."

TV presenter Fiona Phillips: "David Tennant is brilliant and there's an edge to him. I can't wait for Saturday."
