Top 10 TV and Movie Doctors

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 DoctorDoctor Who
2.Doc BrownBack to the Future
3.Doctor KennedyNeighbours
4.Doctor EvilAustin Powers
5.Spock(!)Star Trek
6.Ross GellerFriends
7.Doctor DolittleDoctor Dolittle
8.Perry CoxScrubs
9.Douglas RossE.R.
10.Doctor WatsonSherlock 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.

It's MISTER Spock. DOCTOR Spock is a different entity altogether.
