UK pollsters OnePoll released their results for the top 10 most recognized doctors from the screen (movie or TV). Hat tip to Chuck Foster at the Doctor Who News Page.
|The Top Ten Screen Doctors:|
|1.||The Doctor||Doctor Who|
|2.||Doc Brown||Back to the Future|
|4.||Doctor Evil||Austin Powers|
|7.||Doctor Dolittle||Doctor Dolittle|
|10.||Doctor Watson||Sherlock Holmes|
Above: Dr. Theopolis, from the 1970s TV show BUCK ROGERS IN THE 25th CENTURY. Not on the list.
Surprising to not see British thespian Hugh Laurie's Dr. House on the roster. Ditto Doc Savage, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, Dr. Jekyll, Dr. Strangelove, Dr. Zaius, Dr. Leonard McCoy (although Spock gets on the list -- go figure!), Dr. Frasier Crane, Dr. Bob Hartley, Dr. Huxtable and even Doogie Houser, M.D. Note: "Neighbours," an Australian program, is a long running and popular soap opera in the UK.
